5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jung cover, Oct. 30 2003
By A Customer
Jung builds off many of Freuds concepts, therefore the author Calvin Hall had to, and does have a sense of Freudian psychology. There are also many things that are Jungs own such as ideas about: a collective unconscious, archetypes, dreams and symbols and various personality types. All these things and more covered by Calvin Hall - originating from Carl Gustov Jung. Read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb summary of Jungian psychology, June 26 2000

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: A Primer of Jungian Psychology (Mass Market Paperback)
This is an indispensable book for anyone beginning their studies in Jungian psychology. At 140 pages in length, the text is an easy read with no wasted words and no convoluted passages to unravel. It addresses Jung's entire system and provides succinct, memorable summaries of each concept.

The Book is broken up into seven chapters:
1. Carl Gustav Jung (biographical background)
2. The Structure of Personality (the psyche, conscious, personal unconscious and collective unconscious)
3. The Dynamics of Personality (psychic energy and values, the principles of equivalence and entropy, etc.)
4. The Development of Personality (individuation, transcendence and integration, etc.)
5. Psychological Types (thinking, feeling, sensation, and intuitive)
6. Symbols and Dreams
7. Jung's Place in Psychology.

For more eminently readable Jungian psychology, try Marie-Louise von Franz.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 Times as readable as most Jungian psychology, Feb. 10 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: A Primer of Jungian Psychology (Mass Market Paperback)
'Got turned on to the great Dr. Jung in '90. 'Fell in love w/the feeling of 'startling disclosure' that results from studying Jung's work and how his postulates apply to one's daily existence. The excellent authors of this book talk about 'startling disclosure.' In fact, they shared the term w/me in this very book - the first book of Jungian concepts I ever bought - which is frankly the last book on Jungian PSY a reader will ever need.

5.0 out of 5 stars A concise and practical introduction to Jung's psychology., Oct. 22 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: A Primer of Jungian Psychology (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is so clearly written that reading it becomes a numinous experience. Dr. Jung's unique knowledge of universal themes in myths, tales, and dreams, and of alchemy, and Eastern philosophy brings, together with the scientific Western approach, new elements to the understanding of the human psyche. Consequently, I would say that this analytic psychology's chief aim is individuation and self-realization. Hall and Nordby address this matter very lucidly showing the importance of transcendence and intergration in the process of individuation. Indeed, this process is one of self-knowledge, "Education is drawing out from the person, something that is already there in a nascent state, and not the filling up of an empty container with academic knowledge" (p.83). Altogether, this book is a cromprehensive work addresing concepts such as; the collective unconscious, archetypes, complexes, the shadow, introversion and extroversion, and it even includes a brief description of synchronicity. Undoubtedly, it is worth reading,
