Although I started with Vol 10, I can only imagine how meaningful the rest of the essays are. I can simply say its a book made for a world of masses that lacks a sense of meaningful existence and pure individuality.

“Small and hidden is the door that leads inward, and the entrance is barred by countless prejudices, mistaken assumptions, and fears. Always one wishes to hear of grand political and economic schemes, the very things that have landed every nation in a morass. Therefore it sounds grote

Dar vienas galingas Jungo raštų tomas. Šįkart apie didesnius, visuomeninius reiškinius. Rašyta tarpukaryje, 3-4 dešimtmečiuose, pačiame verdančių įtampų katile Šveicarijoje, Vokietijoje. Jų refleksija suteikia daug peno apmąstymams apie žmogaus psichologiją. Jung'as vadovaujasi savo tvirtu nepalaužiamu principu: individo psichologija atspindi tautų/masių psichologiją. Įžvalgos įtikinamos.
O čia vyšnaitė iš šio kruopščiai paruošto pyrago:

Growing up with the space program and the Cold War led, almost inevitably, to an interest in UFOs--a subject covered seriously by such mainline magazines as Life and Look. A child of the generation, I became an early and avid reader of everything I could find about rocketry, space exploration and, yes, UFOs, reading, from left to right, every book the Park Ridge Public Library had on its shelves about flying saucers.

One of these books was C.G. Jung's Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen

A typically great and illuminating collection of Jung's wisdom. Most interesting are his insights into the influence of the Wotan archetype upon the people of 20th Century Europe (Germany in particular).

Jung here also presents a core and vital piece of work in 'the Undiscovered Self'. We find Jung continuing some of the Nietzschean aspects of his work, urging man towards a realisation of the self and separation from the herd. Jung's employment of terms such as 'herd' and 'plebiscite's' betray t

O colectie de mai multe studii de maturitate in care sunt abordate transformarile societatii in cele doua razboaie mondiale din perspectiva psihologica. Este frapanta asemanarea intre ceea ce se credea la nivel social dupa primul razboi mondial si ceea ce se crede acum la o suta de ani dupa. De asemenea este prezentata aproape profetic iminenta celui de al doilea razboi inca din 1924 desi nimeni nu mai credea in aceasta varianta. O adevarata lectie despre dinamicile colective.
