In clear, comprehensible language this book gives access to the often thought of as “difficult” works of Jung with his important basic concepts – those of the shadow, the archetype, the individual and collective unconscious, the complex, the ego and the self. Most importantly, using the interpretation of dreams – the core of Jung’s psychology – Roth vividly explains specifics of Jung’s thinking and in doing so systematically dissociating it from that of Sigmund Freud. The biographical background, in particular Jung’s discussion with Freud, also conveys a lively and vivid picture of analytical psychology which, in view of modern natural sciences, is enjoying increasing attention.
