Description - Post-Jungians Today by Ann Casement
Post-Jungians Today brings together contributions from leading figures in the international Jungian community to explore how the practice of analytical psychology is adapting to the realities of the postmodern world. In developing the original insights of Jung himself, post-Jungians are committed to an approach that diverges from the total emphasis on psychic reality and takes account of the realities of the outer world. Here authors from very different social, cultural and professional backgrounds explore how Jungian psychology can continue to make a relevant contribution to social and political debates on topics such as gender, ethnicity and sexuality. A showcase for the diversity of Jungian thought around the globe Post-Jungians Today presents up-to-date analysis of current clinical and theoretical developments within analytical psychology as it is practised and in the light of how the discipline is viewed by the academy. The book also assesses why Jungian concepts occupy a unique place in the history of ideas and discusses the traditionally problematic relationship between analytical psychology and psychoanalysis.
For anyone interested in the pluralism and influence Jungian thought in the postmodern world, and in the future of the Jungian enterprise, this is essential reading.
