Jung called himself a phenomenologist, yet the significance of this remark has been largely ignored. Brooke takes the fundamental concepts of analytical psychology and re-interprets them within a phenomenological framework in order to provide a new understanding of Jung's writings. Anyone with a serious interest in analytical psychology or existential phenomenology will need to take account of this book.
