About the Author

Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded the field of analytical psychology. He developed his theories under the tutelage of Eugen Bleuler at Burgholz Hospital, and later worked with Sigmund Freud. His later break with Freud established his system of analysis as different from Freud's psychoanalysis. His development of the concepts of synchronicity, archetypal phenomena, collective unconsciousness, extraversion and introversion were milestones in the understanding of the human psyche.
Sonu Shamdasani is a historian of psychology, and a research associate at the Wellcome Centre for the History of Medicine at University College London. He is the author of Jung and the Making of Modern Psychology: The Dream of a Science and Cult Fictions: C. G. Jung and the Founding of Analytical Psychology, which won the Gradiva Prize of the World Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis in 1999 for the best historical and biographical work. He has edited several books.
John Peck has taught literature at Princeton, Mount Holyoke, Skidmore, and the University of Zurich, and worked as a Jungian analyst in New England for fifteen years. The author of Collected Shorter Poems and Red Strawberry Leaf, he has translated Luigi Zoja, edits for the Philemon Foundation, and lives in Connecticut.
Mark Kyburz, Ph.D., specializes in German into English scholarly translation. Over the past twenty years, he has translated numerous books and articles in various areas of the humanities and social sciences. He is currently working on the lectures that C. G. Jung delivered at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule from 1933 to 1941. He lives in Zürich.

This is a volume that will be treasured by the confirmed Jungian or by admirers of beautifully made books or by those with a taste for philosophical allegory.--Michael Dirda
