Jungian psychology has taken a noticeable political turn in the recent years, and analysts and academics whose work draws on Jung's ideas have made internationally recognised contributions in many humanitarian, communal and political contexts. This book brings together a multidisciplinary and international selection of contributors, all of whom have track records as activists, to discuss some of the most compelling issues in contemporary politics.
Analysis and Activism is presented in six parts:
There remains throughout the book an acknowledgement that the project of thinking forward the political in Jungian psychology can be problematic, given Jung's own questionable political history. What emerges is a radical and progressive Jungian approach to politics informed by the spirit of the times as well as by the spirit of the depths.
This cutting-edge collection will be essential reading for Jungian and post-Jungian academics and analysts, psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists, and academics and students of politics, sociology, psychosocial studies and cultural studies.
