Why Good People Do Bad Things by James Hollis

Book Description

How do we make sense of the discrepancies between who we think we are - or who we show to the outside world - versus our everyday behaviours? Why are otherwise ordinary people driven to addictions and compulsions, whether alcohol, drugs, food, shopping, infidelity or the Internet? Why are interpersonal relationships so often filled with strife? Exploring Jung's concept of the Shadow - the unconscious parts of our self that contradicts the image of the self we hope to project - WHY GOOD PEOPLE DO BAD THINGS guides you through all the ways in which many of our seemingly unexplainable behaviours are manifestations of the Shadow. In addition to its presence in our personal lives, Hollis looks at the larger picture of the Shadow at work in our culture - from organised religion to the suffering and injustice that abounds in our modern world. Accepting and examining the Shadow as part of one's self, Hollis suggests, is the first step toward wholeness. Revealing a new way of understanding our darker selves, Hollis offers wisdom to help you to acquire a more conscious conduct of your life and bring a new level of awareness to your daily actions and choices.
