"One of the most influential thinkers of our time, Carl Gustav Jung has profoundly touched virtually all aspects of our modern culture, including medicine, religion, philosophy, literature, art, and, of course, the ever-evolving field of psychoanalysis. Born in Switzerland in 1875, this son of a poor country parson and his troubled wife would by the end of his life become an iconic figure, his vast body of writings and teachings known the world over. Through his pioneering theories of personality and the unconscious, Jung is responsible for many terms we now consider common: the archetype and the collective unconscious, introvert and extravert, anima and animus, synchronicity and individuation, and even New Age spirituality." "Jung was Sigmund Freud's "crown prince," handpicked by the elder father of psychoanalysis to become the first president of the International Psychoanalytic Association in 1910. However, in 1914 Jung abandoned Freud's theory to found his own system of analytical psychology. As Freud's influence has waned over the years, Jung's ideas - about dream interpretation, about the integration of the psyche as the goal of personal development, about the common roots of all human mythologies - have achieved an overwhelming ascendancy." "Drawing on unprecedented access to private archives, restricted interviews, analytic diaries, and early drafts of Jung's own writings, Bair addresses accusations and separates fact from myth and misconception, revealing surprising discoveries about Jung's personal and professional life. We learn the truth about Jung's role as "Agent 488," working for the U.S. government during World War II; about his relationships with the women in his life; and about the actual content of the papers that purportedly proved his scientific malfeasance."--BOOK JACKET

Calling it quits : late-life divorce and starting over by Deirdre Bair ( Book )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The exploding phenomenon of late-life divorce has resulted in a seismic shift in modern relationships. Author Bair explores the many reasons why older, long-married couples break up. Having conducted nearly four hundred interviews, Bair reveals some of the surprising motivations that lead to these drastic late-life splits, as well as the surprising turns life takes for all concerned after the divorce is final. Bair finds that, most often, women initiate these divorces because they want the freedom to control how they will live the rest of their lives. The realization may appear to happen suddenly, but Bair shows how it often takes many years and much careful planning before the ultimate "Eureka!" moment. Bair describes current trends, including the growing use of "mediators," seen as lower-cost alternatives to lawyers, and provides examples of how people cope in the years after.--From publisher description

Fondée sur une ample documentation, cette biographie montre en quoi et pourquoi Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), le fondateur de la psychologie analytique, est l'un des psychanalystes les plus méconnus et le théoricien le plus controversé de sa discipline. Il fut proche de Freud, avant leur dissension puis leur déception mutuelle. Jung eut aussi une attitude ambiguë envers le nazisme
