Swiss-born Carl Gustav Jung (1875–1961) was one of the pioneers of psychology, largely responsible for the introduction of now-familiar psychological terms such as “introvert,” “extrovert,” and “collective unconscious.” But in spite of this, Jung has often remained on the fringes of academic discourse. Seeking to understand Jung in view of not only his life, but also in light of his extensive reading and prolific writing, this new biography reclaims Jung as a major European thinker whose true significance has not been fully appreciated.
 
Paul Bishop follows Jung from his early childhood to his years at the University of Basel and his close relationship―and eventual break―with Sigmund Freud. Exploring Jung’s ideas, Bishop takes up the psychiatrist’s suggestion that “the tragedies of Goethe’s Faust and Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra . . . mark the first glimmerings of a breakthrough of total experience in our Western hemisphere,” engaging with Jung’s scholarship to offer one of the fullest appreciations yet of his distinctive approach to culture. Bishop also considers the role that the Red Book, written between 1914 and 1930 but not published until 2009, played in the progression of Jung’s thought, allowing Bishop to provide a new assessment of this divisive personality. Jung’s attempt to synthesize the different parts of human life, Bishop argues, marks the man as one of the most important theorists of the twentieth century.
 
Providing a compelling examination of the life of this highly influential figure, the concise and accessible Carl Jung will find a place on the shelves of students, scholars, and both clinical and amateur psychologists alike.

About the Author:

Paul Bishop holds the William Jacks Chair of Modern Languages at the University of Glasgow and is the author of Reading Goethe at Midlife: Ancient Wisdom, German Classicism, and Jung and Jung’s “Answer to Job”: A Commentary.

Review:

“In his book Carl Jung, Bishop has woven a narrative of Jung’s life that bypasses a linear history with a recursive and complex story that would make Jung proud. . . . An even-handed description of the intertwining influences that contributed to the creation of the Jung that we have come to know. . . . A masterful, albeit brief exposition.”  (PsycCritiques)

Book Description Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Carl Gustav Jung (1875 - 1961), as well as being one of the pioneers of psychology, is one of the most controversial of thinkers: in spite of being largely responsible for the introduction of now-familiar psychological terms such as extrovert and introvert , Jung has often been sidelined, remaining on the fringes of academic discourse. In this new account Paul Bishop reclaims Jung as a major European thinker whose true significance, even now, is not fully appreciated. Taking into account the role of Jung s recently published Red Book in the progression of his thought, Paul Bishop reassesses this divisive personality, reading Jung not only in terms of his biography, but also in light of his extensive reading and output. Jung once remarked that the tragedies of Goethe s Faust and Nietzsche s Thus Spoke Zarathustra .mark the first glimmerings of a breakthrough of total experience in our Western hemisphere. In this critical biography Bishop takes up this suggestion and engages with Jung s scholarship in order to offer one of the fullest appreciations yet of his distinctive approach to culture. He finds in Jung s attempt to synthesize all the different parts of human life an enterprise that marks him out as one of the most important theorists of the twentieth century. Carl Jung provides a clear, compelling examination of the life and thought of a highly influential figure. Concise and accessible, the book is suitable for general readers as well as having much to say to scholars and students of Jung. Bishop provides a striking, fresh interpretation of this complex thinker - and offers reasons why we should appreciate him too. Seller Inventory # AA99781780232676
