The concept of 'Archteypes' and the hypothesis of 'A Collective Unconscious' are two of Jung's better known and most exciting ideas. In this volume - taken from the Collected Works and appearing in paperback for the first time - Jung describes and elaborates the two concepts.
Three essays establish the theoretical basis which are then followed by essays on specific archetypes. The relation of these to the process of individuation is examined in the last section. The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious is one of Jung's central works. There are many illustrations in full colour.
An eloquent witness to Jung's greatness of mind and heart. His idea of th archetype involves profound attitudes towards man's existence and intimates values through which very many people have found a new significance in their lives. - Journal of Analytical Psychology
