The works of Jung have been, in my opinion, under-rated. The 'discovery' of the 'unconscious' in the 1900s has been said by some to be discredited. Nothing could be further from the truth. Rather, certain interpretations/'meanings'/aspects etc of the'unconscious ' have been quite rightly discredited, much as occurs in any major discovery/field of science. Much of what Sigmund Freud has said, to some, has been discredited. But in my view, the works of Jung are far better and more accurate, for example, than those of his more famous colleague (Freud), and the progress of science seems to be bearing this out. Freud placed far too much emphasis on the sexual side of our natures, in which findings in psychology and other fields has proved time and again. However, just because some have misintepreted various aspects of the 'unconscious' doesn't of course mean that the theory of the 'unconscious', however you want to define it, is discredited.
Jung has contributed much to our understanding of ourselves and our inherited 'instincts', if you prefer, in the 20th century. His discourses are providing some input, for example, to the growing field of evolutionary pychology; that is, much of our behaviour is inherited from evolutionary processes. This is also the very same view, as I understand it, of Jung.
The theory of the unconscious is by no means dead, and this book explains in a clear and meaningful way many of Jungs and others findings in this fascinating field. Much that goes on in religion and myth and superstition, for example, is not well understood by science; much of this book seeks to explain it. In my opinion , for what it is worth, there is much to be learned here.
Jungs contributions will continue to provide input to various fields of human study for years to come. This book proivides a very good overview of many of his ideas, and was one in which he intended to write for the general public.
Recommended for those who wish to obtain a deeper understanding of their natures, and the nature of that of mankind in general.

I recommend three books to everyone I know. Dr. Northrup's "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom", Gavin DeBecker's "The Gift of Fear" and this one. I have convinced many to read it, including a net buddy from Cuba.
This book is a primer in listening to our unconsicous. If we all learned to do that, the world would be a much better place. I find it hard to have serious discussions on such topics as reality, religion, culture or anything else with people who haven't read this book. I end up spending all my time explaining what is in the book before I can even present my own ideas.
The book isn't "easy" reading, but if the reader sticks with it, he/she will get a lot out of it. Dr. Jung writes to our unconscious as much as our conscious. There have been times when something didn't seem important when I read it, but later bells went off. I love those bells.
Dr. Jung and his colleagues words are so inspiring, that I have decided to follow in their footsteps. I can say that this book truly changed my life

This is Jung's last work before he died in 1961, and the first time he ever tried present his life's work to the layperson. If you're interested in Jung, or human symbols, this is a great start.

When I picked up this book all I knew about Jung was that he was a close associate and friend of Freud. I put it down wanting to read every thing else this man ever wrote. "Man and His Symbols" outlines the Jungian ideas on the unconscious and the symbols it houses that manifest themselves on our dreams. It gives you a wider scope of humanity that proves to be enlightening and comforting in a crazed world. I was quite surprised at how easy this book proved to read in comparison to other psychology books I have read. It provides a clear overview of Jung's life work and a good introduction to his take on psychology as well as the world. Some parts were written in a curiously personal manor that enhanced a spiritual aura this work seemed to take on. This book really struck a deep cord in me and many of the people I have recommended it to.

....for although he edited this collection and made some contributions, most of it was provided by friends and students who knew how to explain his ideas. Good introduction to the psychology of symbol, myth, and things Jungian.

This book offers the layperson an insightful view of the workings of the unconscious mind. It explains the function of symbols in our lives and how they express themselves in our dreams. Jung's archetypes are the human emotions, symbolically expressed through the dream images visited nightly in our sleep. And through the maze of the emotions one will find a metaphysical (spiritual) foundation, properly expressed in the symbolic forms hidden in the deep unconscious realms of the psyche. Jung is talking about the soul.

This book changed my life. The discovery of the unconscious is a wonderful and exciting process. This book helps one to understand the human race through symbols and ultimately oneself. Carl Jung is one of the most insightful thinkers of our time. The hardcover book is a must for all the great pictures. Reading pace may be slow, but it is sometimes necessary in order to gain a greater understanding of the material.

Der erste Teil (=Probelesen) war von C. G. Jung und sehr gut. Danach kam... Langeweile. So schnell habe ich noch nie die Vorwärts-Taste meines Kindles gedrückt.
