Carl Jung: Wounded Healer of the Soul is a spiritual biography of one of the most important figures of the twentieth century, a man whose ideas revolutionized modern psychology. Through over 150 full-color and black and white illustrations, including rare photographs and never-before-seen artwork by Jung himself, his life and work comes vividly to life. By combining Jung’s voice with the impressions of his contemporaries, author Claire Dunne gives the reader a multi-dimensional view of this complex genius. A book that will deepen and expand the understanding of both novice and expert.

?Claire Dunne’s sensitivity of feeling for her subject allows us to meet Jung in all his diverse complexity ? his contradictions and paradox, human failings and strength, his greatness and creativity. We meet a man at once transparent to transcendence but also earthy, practical, a craftsman of wood and stone as well as souls.” ? From the introduction by Jean Houston.


Book News
Dunne (a multicultural educator, biographer and broadcaster) writes a sympathetic account of psychologist Carl Jung. Emphasis is placed on the role of his childhood experiences in his personality development; his spiritual, emotional, and intellectual life; his existential struggles; and his relationship with peers, family, patients, and fans. The book includes nice b&w portraits, as well as a lot of attractive religious art, accompanied by the author's somewhat New Age interpretive commentary. There are also 50 color plates including three paintings from Jung's rarely seen Red Book. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
