Book Description

Feb. 16 1999
     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.

Review

     "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." — Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Archetypal Dimensions of the Psyche Nov. 8 2007
By Tami Brady HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Archetypal Dimensions of the Psyche investigates a nice variety of topics that relate to archetypes and dreams. Simply put, the overlying concept is that our dreams (or delusions) are not random. They contain symbols, symbols that can be useful in psychological analysis, personal self knowledge, or in making decisions about our lives.

The biggest problem is interpreting these meanings. This can be quite a complex task as these elements actually reflect archetypes from historical, religious, and mythological sources imbedded in our individual psyches. Essentially, differing cultural, religious, or historical backgrounds cause the archetypes to appear in slightly different ways for each person. Thus, not only do the archetypal symbols from our dreams (or delusions) need to be recognized as part of their greater story or meaning but also related to the needs and personal understanding of the individual.

Archetypal Dimensions of the Psyche would make an excellent text book for a class on archetypes and dreams. The material presented is detailed enough to adequately present a range of interconnecting concepts while still keeping to the main focus. Furthermore, each topic provides plenty of examples that would be perfect for class discussions. I'd sign up for such a class in a second.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved It June 8 2005
By Bridgett - Published on Amazon.com
This book takes an interesting look at myths, fairy tales, and dreams through traditional Jungian psychology. There's a wealth of information that can be used on the individual level for trying to understand some of one's personal experiences and cultural influences. Subjects such as evil in fairy tales, the cosmic/primordial man, the shadow, and the union of opposites are addressed in a manner to assist in the understanding of individuation and mythology. Probably a lot of old ideas for those very familiar with Jung or Joesph Campbell, but it might shed a new light on certain matters that are addressed.

Marie-Louise von Franz deepens, expands, enlarges and interprets Carl Jung's perspective on the unconscious and its relationship with consciousness. Why read Jung without her?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide to Exploring the Self Aug. 27 2014
By Abner Rosenweig - Published on Amazon.com
M.L. Von Franz was one of Jung's greatest expositors, and this volume is a treasure box of her analysis. The fourth and final in a series of her anthologized writings from Shambala, the book shows the range and depth of Von Franz's work and, in doing so, provides a potent and thorough introduction to many of the foundational ideas of analytic psychology--individuation, the shadow, anima/animus, and Self archetypes, the collective unconscious, dream interpretation. Some of the entries were too technical for a layman like me, but most of the book was accessible and provided inspiration and insight into the mysteries of life as discovered through the inward journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, thorough discussion of issues central to an understanding of depth psychology. Dec 10 2013
By Donna King - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
There is no better expositor of Jung's teachings that Marie-Louise von Franz. This book is, I think, one of her best, although she produced many brilliant books and lectures during her life. Her wit and candor, along with her anecdotes, combine to create a thoroughly readable and thorough approach to the process of individuation (attaining wholeness), especially integrating anima/animus energy. It is as if she is in the room, lecturing or being interviewed on vital topics in depth psychology.
