Jung by Barbara Hannah

Book Description

This full-scale study of Jung's life and work is written by a close student, friend, and associate of more than thirty years. It is a lucid, penetrating account of his career, stressing the essential wholeness of the man and tracing the difficult path that led to that wholeness. From his earliest years to his death, through the crowded inner and outer events of his long ifetime, Hannah presents a view of the real Jung, not the creature of legend and cult. She treats his theoretical apparatus as well as such personal matters as his relationship with Toni Wolff and his supposed flirtation with Nazism. Here we see Jung's humanity and his genius as a "navigator of the unconscious."

Books By Author Barbara Hannah

Animus by Barbara Hannah Animus, Paperback (April 2012)

THE ANIMUS, in two volumes, presents Barbara Hannah's psychological analysis of the animus, gleaned from handwritten notes, typed manuscripts, previously published articles, her own drafts of her lectures, and notes taken by those present. She tackled the theme of the animus with a comprehensiveness unsurpassed in Jungian literature.

Archetypal Symbolism of Animals by Barbara Hannah Archetypal Symbolism of Animals, Paperback (August 2005)

This volume presents Barbara Hannah's Jung Institute lectures of 1954-58. In these profound talks, she speaks of the archetypal symbolism of seven animals--cat, dog, horse, serpent, lion, bull, and cow--discussing their roles in the psychological and cultural life of the West.

Encounters with the Soul by Barbara Hannah Encounters with the Soul, Paperback (June 2000)

This text uses case studies to trace the human journey toward personal wholeness. It explores Jung's method of "active imagination", and includes examples of many powerful archetypal forces that apply both to men and women.

US Kirkus Review » The current quickening of interest in Carl Gustav Jung has produced a number of books. This one, says its author - a now 80-year-old Englishwoman - "claims only to be a biographical memoir, showing his life as it appeared to me." On the MS being shown to Jung's children, they "thoroughly disapproved," feeling that his Memories, Dreams and Reflections met the need for a biography. Note also the 1975 book - not a biography - C. G. Jung: His Myth in Our Time by Marie Louise von Franz, in whose understanding of his ideas, says Miss Hannah, Jung had complete confidence. In her own book Miss Hannah sets out to show "how Jung first lived his psychology and later formulated in words what he had lived." She draws on her journals, recollections of conversations with Jung, and her sharing in the life of his professional household for many years, so that her book runs to over 400 pages and is full of the kind of detail that can be important in understanding so individual a figure. She touches base frequently with Memories and deals at length with two issues on which, she feels, circumstances have left her with special knowledge. The first is Jung's attitude to the Nazis; her completely convincing account leaves him with a clean record. And second his relationship with his associate Toni Wolff; here her apologia is less successful. The author may be more Jungian than Jung but she always leaves the reader wanting to follow up her pointers to his own writing. Her clear explanatory narrative can serve as an introduction to Jung, and her sturdy account will also draw aficionados. (Kirkus Reviews)
