More a diatribe than an essay, but what a diatribe. The Sermon on the Mount as the guide to living. Non-violence as the central moral tenet. Brilliantly passionate.

Modern Man in Search of a Soul by C.G. Jung
Rate this book
Clear rating
A bit dated, but still Jung's emphasis on the whole man, and his insistance that psychology cannot be just about ridding people of neurosis, but also must also be about developing and enhancing the quality of the pychic life, ring true.
