There's little doubt that von Franz was, in her own right, a genius--as was her mentor Carl Jung. Unlike Jung, whose books are brilliant but extremely difficult to read--both in style & in organization, von Franz writes beautifully & is very organized indeed. She makes points and then ties them all together in an extraordinary fashion--virtually amazing to me. She provides insights from her personal experiences as well as her interactions with Jung which are not to my knowledge available in Jung's Collected Works of C.G. Jung: 21 Volume Hardcover Set. Some of her more generic statements of note were: p. 29: "If people cannot discuss things in a detached way & relatively truthfully, it is because they are influenced by an archetype" & p. 42: "The more conscious we are the more people we can understand." More specifically to the topic at hand, she relates relative & absolute time, the Self as a field of archetypes, precognition-synchronicity-& divination, ritual & play/games, sacrifice & detachment, similarities/differences among diviners--p. 42 "all are true but all are only partial," & most interestingly considering both the duality of the relative/absolute dichotomy vs. the mystical Unity of All -- p. 98: "Jung stresses the point that since the physical & the psychic realms coincide within the synchronistic event, there must be somewhere or somehow a unitarian reality--one reality of the physical & psychic realms."
But, less philosophical and more practical (and a devastating comment on American culture), von Franz says that pp. 84-5: "If one has very primitive feelings, then one has black & white reactions: I like it, or I don't like it, and there is nothing in between; or this is good & this is bad, agreeable or disagreeable--it is an either-or reaction. That is typical for undifferentiated feeling. Thinking types, for instance, react like that, while feeling types have a kind of spectrum of feeling reactions...a spectrum reaction." This book is full of penetrating analysis & innovative, creative arguments--brilliant.
