Archetypal Dimensions of the Psyche
By

Rating
The chief disciple of C. G. Jung, analyst Marie-Louise von Franz uses her vast knowledge of the world of myths, fairy tales, visions, and dreams to examine expressions of the universal symbol of the Anthropos, or Cosmic Man--a universal archetype that embodies humanity's personal as well as collective identity. She shows that the meaning of life--the realization of our fullest human potential, which Jung called individuation--can only be found through a greater differentiation of consciousness by virtue of archetypes, and that ultimately our future depends on relationships, whether between the sexes or among nations, races, religions, and political factions.

Reviews

Von Franz worked closely with Carl Jung from 1930 to his death in 1961, assisting and supporting in his life work, particularly in the exploration of alchemy, dreams, and fairy tales. In dozens of books and articles, she has elaborated and amplified her mentor's groundbreaking discoveries. She has a remarkable gift for interpreting and demystifying the difficult symbolism of religious visions, ancient myths, and fairy tales of the common folk. This volume of essays continues to plumb the depths of archetypal realities on such topics as Merlin, the Antichrist, the Goddess, the Black Madonna, and the Age of Aquarius. Whether explaining the psychic complexities of gender or racial conflict, or the survival value of our connection to other animals, von Franz is perhaps unsurpassed as the archetypal Jungian. For all public and academic collections.‘Terry McMaster, Onondaga Cty. Mental Health Svcs., Syracuse, N.Y.
