A Guided Tour of the Collected Works of C.G. Jung

Hopcke, Robert H.

 This marvelous guide should be very helpful to anyone who wants to read Jung’s works: from persons with only a passing interest, students working on school assignments, people in therapy, to researchers and even Jungians who have read Jung but want to go back to specific subjects. The topics covered are arranged in four parts: The Ways and Means of the Psyche, which covers 15 subjects, such as active imagination, psychological types, spirit, and synchronicity. Part Two, Archetypal Figures, includes 13 topics, such as Puer/divine child, hero, trickster, coniunctio. Topics of Special Interest includes 7, from Freud and psychoanalysis to UFO and occult phenomena. esoterica is the subject of the last section, and contains 5 chapters on alchemy. It is the arrangement of this book that makes it such a key work. Each chapter consists of a 2-4 page overview of the topic followed by a graded bibliography. The first, "To begin," lists the most basic introductory work. Under the next heading, "To Go Deeper," are several more listings for those who want to approach the topic in some depth. "Related Works" are listed next. Last comes "Secondary Sources, " or works by Jungians about the topic. Anyone who has access to the Collected Works of C.G. Jung should profit greatly by this book.
