Recommends it for: jungians, religious studies, ritual studies, shamanism
as a Jungian therapist and one who studies myth and depth psychology for a living, i recommend this as a vital text to understanding Jung. it is a good introductory text, and offers key insights into Jung as a scholar revitalizing the principles of the premodern worldview. although there is much written by and about Jung, this is my favorite articulation of Jungian concepts. the prose is snapping, vibrant, and explicit. one of the few books i have read twice.
