Biography & Memoir • 24 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

In this comprehensive biography the Swiss psychiatrist and psychologist comes across as a philandering, anti-Semitic, deeply troubling person. Yet his controversial and idiosyncratic ideas profoundly influenced the evolution of the psychoanalytic movement in the first half of the twentieth century. With clarity and understatement, Stuart Langton presents this predominately negative portrait. His crisp British diction and oddly prolonged inflections give a distinctive formal tone to the narrative as he highlights Jung's long life, his relationship with Freud and his wide-ranging theories: the "collective unconscious," the role of dreams in psychic health, and the importance of myth and Asian religion.
