Description

C. G. Jung: The Basics is an accessible, concise introduction to the life and ideas of C.

G. Jung for readers of all backgrounds, from those new to Jung's work to those looking for a convenient reference. Ruth Williams eloquently and succinctly introduces the key concepts of Jungian theory and paints his biographical picture with clarity.

The book begins with an overview of Jung's family life, childhood, and relationship with (and subsequent split from) Sigmund Freud.

Williams then progresses thematically through the key concepts in his work, clearly explaining ideas including the unconscious, the structure of the psyche, archetypes, individuation, psychological types and alchemy.

C. G. Jung: The Basics also presents Jung's theories on dreams and the self, and explains how his ideas developed and how they can be applied to everyday life.

The book also discusses some of the negative claims made about Jung, especially his ideas on politics, race, and gender, and includes detailed explanations and examples throughout, including a chronology of Jung's life and suggested further reading. C. G. Jung: The Basics will be key reading for students at all levels coming to Jung's ideas for the first time and general readers with an interest in his work.

For those already familiar with Jungian concepts, it will provide a helpful guide to applying these ideas to the real world.
