My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was assigned reading for my Jungian Psychology class. We split the large book into three sections, one for each class session. I’ve enjoyed this reading the most since it’s actually Jung’s writing, and not writing about Jung (though those materials are valuable as well). I like this collection because it includes material from throughout Jung’s career and is carefully selected and highlighted by Anthony Storr. It’s really a walk-through of all of Jung’s concepts (archetypes, Self, shadow, etc) as well as an over-view of his early-late works. Storr’s commentary makes the material even more accessible and places Jung’s writing in context. I do enjoy Jung’s writing style as well. I do find his work very accessible. Since I’ve been reading this 400 page book for the last two months though, I find I’ve already “forgotten” the start of the book. Glad to have all my highlights and notes to flip through!
