Description - Jung on Synchronicity and the Paranormal by C. G. Jung
Jung had a lifelong interest in the paranormal which culminated in his influential theory of synchronicity. Combining extracts taken from The Collected Works , letters, seminars and the autobiographical Memories, Dreams and Reflections , Jung on Synchronicity and the Paranormal clearly sets out Jung's seminal contribution to our understanding of this controversial area. In his introduction Roderick Main discusses Jung's encounters with and observations of the paranormal, the influences which contributed to his theory of synchronicity and the central ideas of the theory itself. The selections include Jung's writings on mediumistic trance phenomena, spirits and hauntings, anomalous events involved in the development and practice of analytical psychology and the divinatory techniques of astrology and the I Ching . The book also features Jung's most lucid account of his theory in the form of the short essay On Synchronicity', and a number of Jung's lesser known writings on parapsychology, his astrological experiment and the relationship between mind and body.
Jung on Synchronicity and the Paranormal addresses subjects which were fundamental to Jung's personal and professio development. Setting out clearly the theory of synchronicity, Roderick Main clarifies issues which have long been a source of confusion to readers.
