Jungian Thought in the Modern World
C.G. Jung (1875-1961) was a man of the millennium. His personal history parallels the history of the last century and is especially relevant to the current movement where themes not only from the last century but also the last millennium are being gathered in anticipation of the new era. Jung's life and work touch on the past century's two major themes: on the one hand, the discovery and mapping of the unconscious, an internal source of creativity and destruction for each individual; and, on the other hand, those outbreaks of dreadful violence and expressions of awesome creativity that can erupt from within the unconscious of humankind as a whole.
