really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, therapy

While I grasped the basic hypothesis of Jung I did find a lot of the references to symbols flying past my comprehension. I do agree that there is the possibility of people having conscious and unconscious selves (how often do we get gut instincts about people or situations that only reveal themselves later) I am unsure if they show up in dreams as symbols as he believes. Oddly enough the chapters not written by Jung himself (he only wrote one) do a better job of explaining his point than he does. It is a book I will be mulling over in my mind for awhile.
