Jung and the making of modern psychology : the dream of a science by Sonu Shamdasani( Book )

The psychology of Kundalini yoga : notes of the seminar given in 1932 by C.G. Jung by C. G Jung( Book )

38 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jung's seminar on Kundalini yoga, presented to the Psychological Club in Zurich in 1932, has been widely regarded as a milestone in the psychological understanding of Eastern thought and of the symbolic transformations of inner experience. Kundalini yoga presented Jung with a model for the developmental phases of higher consciousness, and he interpreted its symbols in terms of the process of individuation. In his introduction, Shamdasani explains why Jung thought that the comprehension of Eastern thought was essential if Western psychology was to develop. He goes on to orient today's audience toward an appreciation of some of the questions that stirred the minds of Jung and his seminar group: What is the relation between Eastern schools of liberation and Western psychotherapy? What connection is there between esoteric religious traditions and spontaneous individual experience? What light do the symbols of Kundalini yoga shed on conditions diagnosed as psychotic? Not only were these questions important to analysts in the 1930s but, as Shamdasani stresses, they continue to have psychological relevance for readers on the threshold of the twenty-first century. This volume also offers newly translated material from Jung's German language seminars, a seminar by the indologist Wilhelm Hauer presented in conjunction with that of Jung, illustrations of the cakras, and Sir John Woodroffe's classic translation of the tantric text, the aj-cakra-Nirpaa
Cult fictions : C.G. Jung and the founding of analytical psychology by Sonu Shamdasani( Book )

19 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Controversial claims that C.G. Jung, founder of analytical psychology, was a charlatan and a self-appointed demi-god have recently brought his legacy under renewed scrutiny. The basis of the attack on Jung is a previously unknown text, said to be Jung's inaugural address at the founding of his 'cult', otherwise known as the Psychological Club, in Zurich in 1916. It is claimed that this cult is alive and well in Jungian psychology as it is practiced today, in a movement which continues to masquerade as a genuine professional discipline, whilst selling false dreams of spiritual redemption. In Cult Fictions, Jung scholar Sonu Shamdasani looks into the evidence for such claims and draws on previously unpublished documents to show that they are fallacious. --From publisher's description

Lament of the dead : psychology after Jung's Red book by James Hillman( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book of dialogues, James Hillman and Sonu Shamdasani reassess psychology, history and creativity through the lens of Carl Jung's Red Book. Hillman, the founder of Archetypal Psychology, was one of the most prominent psychologists in America and is widely acknowledged as the most original figure to emerge from Jung's school. Shamdasani, editor and co-translator of Jung's Red Book, is regarded as the leading Jung historian. Hillman and Shamdasani explore a number of the issues in The Red Book - such as our relationship with the dead; the figures of our dreams and fantasies; the nature of creative expression; narrative and storytelling; the legacy of Christianity and our relation to the past - and examine the implications these have for our thinking today."--Publisher description
From India to the planet Mars : a case of multiple personality with imaginary languages by Théodore Flournoy( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and French and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic in the field of psychology, From India to Planet Mars (1900) depicts the remarkable multiple existence of the medium Hélène Smith, who claimed to be the reincarnation of Marie Antoinette, of a Hindu princess from fifteenth-century India, and of a regular visitor to Mars, whose landscapes she painted and whose language she appeared to speak fluently. Through a psychological interpretation of these fantasies, which consisted in the subliminal elaboration of forgotten memories, Théodore Flournoy vastly extended the scope and understanding of the unconscious, and in particular, of its creative and mythopoetic capacities. In the introduction to this work, Soriu Shamdasani evokes the rich cultural and intellectual setting which Flournoy published his findings, and discusses their impact on Freud, Jung, and other pioneers psychology. Originally published in 1994.

The undiscovered self by C. G Jung( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These two essays, written late in Jung's life, reflect his responses to the shattering experience of World War II and the dawn of mass society. Among his most influential works, "The Undiscovered Self" is a plea for his generation--and those to come--to continue the individual work of self-discovery and not abandon needed psychological reflection for the easy ephemera of mass culture. Only individual awareness of both the conscious and unconscious aspects of the human psyche, Jung tells us, will allow the great work of human culture to continue and thrive. Jung's reflections on self-knowled
Dreams by C. G Jung( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dream analysis is a distinctive and foundational part of analytical psychology, the school of psychology founded by C.G. Jung and his successors. This volume collects Jung's most insightful contributions to the study of dreams and their meaning. The essays in this volume, written by Jung between 1909 and 1945, reveal Jung's most essential views about dreaming--especially regarding the relationship between language and dream. Through these studies, Jung grew to understand that dreams are themselves a language, a language through which the soul communicates with the body. The essays included a

Four archetypes; mother, rebirth, spirit, trickster by C. G Jung( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Jung's most influential ideas has been his view, presented here, that primordial images, or archetypes, dwell deep within the unconscious of every human being. The essays in this volume gather together Jung's most important statements on the archetypes, beginning with the introduction of the concept in "Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious." In separate essays, he elaborates and explores the archetypes of the Mother and the Trickster, considers the psychological meaning of the myths of Rebirth, and contrasts the idea of Spirits seen in dreams to those recounted in fairy tales. Th
Jung contra Freud : the 1912 New York lectures on the theory of psychoanalysis by C. G Jung( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the autumn of 1912, C.G. Jung, then president of the International Psychoanalytic Association, set out his critique and reformulation of the theory of psychoanalysis in a series of lectures in New York, ideas that were to prove unacceptable to Freud, thus creating a schism in the Freudian school. Jung challenged Freud's understandings of sexuality, the origins of neuroses, dream interpretation, and the unconscious, and Jung also became the first to argue that every analyst should themselves be analyzed. Seen in the light of the subsequent reception and development of psychoanalysis, Jung's critiques appear to be strikingly prescient, while also laying the basis for his own school of analytical psychology. This volume of Jung's lectures includes an introduction by Sonu Shamdasani, Philemon Professor of Jung History at University College London, and editor of "Jung's Red Book"
Answer to Job : (From Vol. 11 of the Collected Works of C.G. Jung) (New in Paper) by C. G Jung( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered one of Jung's most controversial works, Answer to Job also stands as Jung's most extensive commentary on a biblical text. Here, he confronts the story of the man who challenged God, the man who experienced hell on earth and still did not reject his faith. Job's journey parallels Jung's own experience--as reported in The Red Book: Liber Novus--of descending into the depths of his own unconscious, confronting and reconciling the rejected aspects of his soul. This paperback edition of Jung's classic work includes a new foreword by Sonu Shamdasani, Philemon Professor of Jung History at
