This comprehensive collection of writings by the epoch-shaping Swiss psychoanalyst was edited by Joseph Campbell, himself the most famous of Jung's American followers. It comprises Jung's pioneering studies of the structure of the psyche--including the works that introduced such notions as the collective unconscious, the Shadow, Anima and Animus--as well as inquries into the psychology of spirituality and creativity, and Jung's influential " On Synchronicity ," a paper whose implications extend from the I Ching to quantum physics. Campbell's introduction completes this compact volume, placing Jung's astonishingly wide-ranging oeuvre within the context of his life and times.

This was a popular book to be seen carrying around with you in California during the 70s. It said a lot about you. It said you were intelligent, and it said you had an open, broad, mind. The editor, Joseph Campbell, was nearly as popular with his own works, during the 80s, especially amongst people in recovery ( 12 steps). As is usual with these kinds of books, it gives a broad spectrum of the featured author's works, without necessarily going to deeply into any aspect of such. So, it can serve as a useful introduction to the author. But hold onto it: it functions as a bibliography as you read deeper into the subjects the author covered. There are some illuminating short films out there, too.
