Father: Contemporary Jungian Perspectives by Andrew Samuels

Book Description

"In this book the father comes to life as a whole human being in analytical theory."--"British Journal of Psychiatry""A most welcome book...A rich compendium on a theme that all readers will recognize as one that has, until recently, been conspicuous by its absence in the literature of both analytical psychology and psychoanalysis."--"Journal of Analytical Psychology"A rapprochement of analytical psychology with psychoanalysis is long overdue. Much of the movement in this direction has stemmed from the professional organizations in San Francisco and London. With this volume, Samuels has made a valuable contribution to this development. A very fair and helpful review of the relationship between Freud and Jung and the differences that developed in their psychologies, partly as a result of the interaction between the two pioneers, is included in the editor's introduction."--"Contemporary Psychology""An erudite and excellent introduction...provides a clear exposition of the key issues that caused dispute between Freud and Jung, a summary of Jung's view on the structure and dynamics of the psyche and his view of therapy. It is commendable that many of the papers that follow provide a wealth of clinical illustrations."--"Group Analysis""Important for clinicians, "The Father" will also serve the general reader who has had aminimal introduction to Jungian thought and who seeks further authoritative insight."--"Reference and Research Book News""True to its subject, this book opens witha tantalizing archetypal dilemma...which in this case, is the psychological consequences of feminist consciousness among men. Samuel's excellent introduction describes the Jungian perspective."--"Science"
