It was his first attimpt to present his life-work in psychology to a non-tecnical public. What emerges with great clarity from the book is that Jung has done immense service both to psychology as a science and to our general understanding of man in society by insist... more »ing that inaginative life must be taken seriously in its own right as the most distinctive characteristic of human beings.
Here Jung examines the full world of the unconscious, whose language he believed to be the symbols constantly revealed in dreams-Convinced that dreams offer practical advice sent from the unconscious to the conscious self, Jung felt that self-understanding would lead to a full and productive life. Thus the reader will gain new insights into himself from this thoughful volume which also illustrates symbols throughout history.« less
