Welcome to the Carl Jung section the All About Psychology website. From here you will be able to access detailed information and resources relating to one of the most influential and enigmatic thinkers of the 20th century. Increasingly disaffected with the central ideas of his old friend and mentor Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung broke away to establish analytical psychology; a school of inquiry designed to explore the deepest recesses of the human mind.
Jung's revolutionary psychoanalytical approach had a profound impact across a range of diverse fields including, psychology, philosophy, mythology, anthropology, theology and the arts and many of his most influential psychological concepts; archetypes, persona, collective unconsciousness, synchronicity, introvert/extrovert personality types etc, continue to be taught and studied throughout the world today.

This is the first fully illustrated biography of one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, famous for his pioneering exploration of dreams, the unconscious and spirituality.
Carl Jung continues to be revered today as a true revolutionary who helped to shape psychology, provided a bridge between Western and Eastern spirituality, and brought into general awareness such fundamental concepts as archetypes, the collective unconscious and synchronicity.
In this important book, Claire Dunne chronicles Jung’s journey of self-discovery from a childhood filled with visions both terrifying and profound, through to his early professional success and mid-life rediscovery of spirituality. Special attention is paid to the tumultuous relationship between Jung and Sigmund Freud, the unconventional yet vital role performed by his colleague Toni Wolff, and the revelatory visions Jung experienced following a close brush with death.
The words of Jung himself and those who shared his work and private life are presented verbatim, connected by Claire Dunne’s lively and accessible commentary and by an evocative array of illustrations including photographs of Jung, his associates, and the environments in which he lived and worked, as well as art images both ancient and contemporary that reflect Jung’s teachings.
Jung emerges as a healer whose skills arose from having first attended to the wounds in his own soul. This is an essential work of reference as well as a fascinating and entertaining read for everyone interested in psychology, spirituality, and personal development.
