Psychology of the Unconscious
by C. G. Jung
Publisher: Moffat, Yard & co. 1916
Number of pages: 650
Breaking from Freud by allowing for nonsexual psychic forces driving the libido, Carl Jung made a more lasting name for himself than did his mentor. Psychology of the Unconscious is a prodigious leap away from Freud's dictatorial constraints, exploring the mythic aspects of our interior lives in exquisite detail. While he sometimes sacrifices readability for erudition, this is no failing for the interested student, who strives to follow Jung as he moves from Norse mythology to Shakespeare to Sanskrit etymology quickly but seamlessly.

While tracing back the abnormal to the normal state, professor Freud found how faint the line of demarcation was between the normal and neurotic person, and that the psychopathologic mechanisms could be demonstrated in normal persons also.
by Paul Rosenfels - Ninth St Center
Freud was a towering literary figure, a communicator who raised the consciousness of the civilized world in psychological matters. Now it is up to others to make something substantial out of the opportunity thus afforded by his pioneering zeal.
by A. A. Brill - W. B. Saunders
The main object of this book is to present the practical application of Freud's theories in one volume, hoping thereby not only to remove many false conceptions concerning psychoanalysis, but to stimulate further interest in Freud's original works.
by Michael Guy Thompson - New York University Press
M. Guy Thompson forcefully disagrees with the recent trend that dismisses Freud as an historical figure who is out of step with the times. He argues for a return to the forgotten Freud, a man rooted in a Greek preoccupation with the nature of truth.
