`Jung's single-minded humility, his passion to unearth truth, is one of the loveliest impressions to emerge from this absorbing and many-sided book.' The Times `He was on a giant scale ... he was a master physician of the soul in his insights, a profound sage in his conclusions. He is also one of Western Man's great liberators.' J. B. Priestley, Sunday Telegraph `Can sometimes rise to the heights of a Blake or a Nietzsche or a Kierkegaard ... like any true prophet or artist he extended the range of the human imagination ... to be able to share Jungian emotions is surely an almost necessary capacity of the free mind.' Polly Toynbee, Observer
This statement of faith, philosophy and principles is a piece of self-analysis and provides the model for the application of Jungian psychoanalysis to an individual's life. The book contains Jung's systematic thinking about the existence of God.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Arguably the greatest autobiography of the century, Memories, Dreams, Reflections is a man's attempt to reconcile his own inner life with the inadequate rubrics of his time: intellectual, philosophical, and psychological. Jung had the courage to disown Freud's idea that the unconscious was merely a cause of mayhem for the ego. Rather the self, the archetype of wholeness, both guides the ego to its highest fulfillment and presents it with demons in the form of dreams and fantasies. Ideas we take for granted today originate here: The idea that there is a symbolic language that connects all minds which he dubbed the collective unconscious. That men have an inner feminine life and vice versa. The valuation of all religions and philosophies, east and west, as food for the soul. Yet Jung is no dreamer. He was able to draw on Nietzsche and Schopenhauer, as well as non traditional sources, to make his points. His intellectual achievement is gargantuan, being that he is a 19th century character trained by traditional medicine, and bred by Swiss Christianity.
I urge anyone who is unsatisfied with popular psychology, religion, and culture to read this book. It is a common inclusion in philosophy of religion classes and is still read in psychology schools. It is especially good for young people just coming to grips with their spirituality, and for the elderly searching for a sense of meaning in their lives. For those attempting to reconcile their intellectual and spiritual lives, Jung provides a way of looking at things, not a dogma or philosophy, that adds luster to both.
Q. What, then, is the message of Jung's life, that,what William James had described as ordeal of consciousness ?
A. The goal of Jungian individuation is expansion & integration of the psychic contents ("soul") within the field of awareness, the ego being the center of conscious life. The grand finale would be fusion, coniunctio, of the "soul" ( psyche ) and "Spirit" ( pneuma/Self ), with ego retaining its "privileged" position as the center of the conscious life.
Q. So is this expansion and integration something one is aware of when it is happening or when it has happened ?
A. Well, that's a tricky subject. I'll try to give some hints a few outspoken Jungians like Marie Louise von Franz, and Jung himself have adumbrated. Of course, the entire spiritual "enterprise" is based on the Western Hermetic/Gnostic tradition, from Corpus Hermeticum to alchemists's "opera". In short, you got a growth of inner ( and outer life ) on various levels of consciousness ( altered states, dreams, hypnagogic dreams, guided imagination, prayer, conscious ponderings, listening your inner daemon/voice, ordeals of emotional & family life,....). The goal is "individuated" man/woman: that is, someone who lives an authentic life ( Shakespearean "to thine own self be true" ), not an onedimensional spiritual saintly prototype nor a conformistic ego- centered mediocre. I suppose the ultimate ideal would be someone like Goethe or Plato- a multidimensional, creative individuum with strong sense of "I", yet in deep contact/fusion with the divine wellspring within- in sum, ideal of the "Renaissance man".
Q. Was Jung able to achieve the "fusion" in his own life?
A. From what is described in his spiritual autobiography- yes. Yet, I suspect he went even a step beyond: his final stage was that of a deified psyche ( with ego/ I-sense still present, but somehow subdued & the eternal/divine life perpetually glowing in the background of waking consciousness.)
