Introducing the book Selected works by Carl Gustav Jung
Although humanity from the beginning of antiquity, as well as the Middle Ages, believed in the nature of the soul, in the second half of the nineteenth century, a kind of psychology without a soul emerged and due to the influence of scientific materialism, everything its existence could not be seen and touched. It was questioned, or as something beyond nature, it found an extraordinary and terrifying aspect.
Of course, it would be unfair to blame philosophy and the natural sciences for such a complete reversal. During the nineteenth century, beyond the nature of the soul, it had to be replaced by the nature of matter.
Trying to solve this irrational reversal with the help of philosophy is a predetermined failure. The soul does not fit into the classification of the human intellect. The present book is a summary of Carl Gustav Jung’s impressions and explorations on the issue of the human soul and perception of his identity.
Man in Search of Self Identity is a work by Carl Gustav Jung, first published in 1933. This book, considered by many to be one of the most important works in the field of psychology, is a complete and comprehensive introduction to Jung’s ideas.
In this book, Jung addresses some of the most fundamental and controversial concepts in the field of analytical psychology; Concepts such as dream analysis, primitive unconscious, and the relationship between psychology and religion. In addition, Jung analyzes the differences between his views and those of Sigmund Freud, and provides valuable information to anyone interested in the basics of psychoanalysis.
Carl Gustav Jung (July 26, 1875 – June 6, 1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist, philosopher, and author best known for his work in psychology and theorizing “analytical psychology.”
Jung was born in Kasville, Switzerland. He became interested in science and philosophy at a young age and was awarded a scholarship by the University of Basel to study medicine. Jung later became a member of the University Debate Association. He attended spirit summoning sessions for more than two years because he considered these sessions to be the subject of his research.
Excerpts from the book Man in Search of Self Identity:
Not only for primitive man, but also for civilized man, the soul has a kind of objective characteristic and is largely dependent on the conscious, so we are often unable to suppress our emotions and lusts and turn a hateful trait into a beautiful trait.
I have always felt that something in that depths endures eternal life and flow. What we see is a blossom that dies. The root remains.
For one who understands, nothing is obscure; Only lack of understanding causes the emergence of vague and incomprehensible things.
