Towards the end of this interesting, informative and uneven collection of interactions with C.G. Jung, the subject of the book cheerily explains that his main aim for his 85th birthday was to avoid visitors, particularly "highbrows" who he says have no idea what he's talking about and don't read his books. "I'm not a bit taken in by intellectuals, you know," he says. "After all, I'm one myself."

Apart from the continuing issue of whether those who critique Jung's ideas (including some Jungians) h

Já jsem překvapen, jak je neustále zdůrazňováno, že je Jung psycholog, když je evidentně nejvíce ze všeho myslitel a filozof v tom pravém významu slova.

S Jungem jsem se poprvé setkal, když jsem chodil na rehabilitace na Malvazinkách. Pán ve středních letech (brýle a jen trochu delší vlasy mu dodávaly vzdělané vzezření) tam při cvičení vyprávěl terapeutce, že psychologem 20. století byl Freud, ale že Jung bude psychologem 21. století. Toho pána jsem už nikdy nespatřil, ale při čtení této knihy j

If you want to learn about analytical psychology, this book is not the place to start. If you know about analytical psychology and want to learn a bit more about Carl Gustav Jung, then this might be interesting. It is, of course, the material fit for public consumption.

Môj vzťah k psychológií ako vede je rozporuplný. A zdá sa tiež, že sú tieto rozpory čoraz menej zmierlivé. Chcela som si preto čítaním tejto knihy osviežiť dielo dôležitého psychológa minulého storočia, ktorý sa snažil o komplexno a neredukoval výklady sociálnej reality na štruktúry a diania v ľudskej schránke a v nej krehko „tancujúcej“ duši.

Jung v rozhovoroch pre verejnosť počas viac ako tridsiatich rokov vyzýva k sebareflexií. Nie však ku kontrolovanej sebareflexií ako prostriedku k posilneni

So far this book is great if you want a piece of literature that's essentially a conglomeration of interviews done with the well-known Carl Jung, which is what this is. By reading this I was able to acquire a decent understanding of the psychiatrist, his methods, and even some tidbits of info on self-knowledge, which is probably what he inherited when he studied Alchemy. Being a person that studies the practice as well, I can say this will be a great read, for in every interview you learn someth ...more
