Happy Birthday, C.G. Jung!

Carl Gustav Jung, the Swiss psychologist, was born July 26, 1875 and became the founder of analytical psychology. Jung’s well known concepts about archetype, the collective unconscious and synchronicity continue to marvel modern readers.  Princeton University Press is the proud publisher of  C.G. Jung and many titles about Jung.  For more information about Jung and his works, check out these links:

  1. I recommend Jung Extracts. It’s a great sampling of Jung’s writings. It may leave you wanting more though!! 🙂

  2. I conveniently found “The Red Book” (out of all places, on “Law & Order” and had to purchase it – highly recommended.

  3. I found the Red Book also on Amazon. Love it.

    I recommend Having a Life by Jonathan Winther. He is so Freudish.
