Jung's Map of the Soul
Murray Stein, a
longtime Jungian therapist and prolific author, provides
readers with an accessible introduction to the essential
Jungian ideas in Jung's Map of the Soul.
Written in a
user-friendly and accessible style, the book is packed with
lively anecdotes and helpful examples that illustrate some
of Jung's most abstract ideas.
innumerable books on Carl Jung's psychology are available,
but few are as comprehensive and concise as Stein's primer.
Himself a widely regarded analyst, Stein presents Jung's
major theoretical contributions in language as uncomplicated
as the subject allows. Persona and shadow, animus and anima,
archetypes and the collective unconscious—Stein defines them
all, locating them within the framework of Jung's written
work. Aimed at the general reader but sufficiently academic
for the specialist, this is an excellent basic book on the
the general reader, Stein provides an outline of Jung's
basic concepts that is clearly written and indicates some of
the distinctions between Jung's thinking and Freud's."
