Gli studi compresi in questo volume appartengono tutti alla giovinezza di Jung. Essi costituiscono notevoli contributi alla vera e propria rivoluzione che si andava compiendo in quegli anni in cui la psichiatria veniva trasformando la conoscenza scientifica di quanto era affidato alle sue cure – la psiche umana, appunto – scoprendone i complessi, le tendenze dissociative e i meccanismi inconsci, così come il linguaggio simbolico e i dinamismi utilizzabili ai fini della terapia.

This book should be required reading for anyone interested in both psychology and paranormal phenomena. An even better title might have been "Psychology and the Supernatural".

In genere si crede che tali esseri siano Leggi tutto
My boy Hot Carl steps up to the plate in order to bust some ghosts. Unfortunately, he was working with the incredibly limited toolkit they had around the turn of the century, so he took a good, hard, squinty look at this shrieking possession case -- nowadays it would be diagnosed as DID or Histrioni Leggi tutto
This collection of writings, spanning over sixty years, is slight but provocative. Jung's handling of the questions of belief and proof (as psychological phenomena in themselves), his report of a haunting experienced by himself and a friend, and the utter gems of expression in pieces such as "The So Leggi tutto
Good start but the copy I read was short and I know there has got to be a lot more in Jung's writing about the paranormal. The most interesting part was his first published piece, his dissertation On the Psychology and the Pathology of So-Called Occult Phenomena, just because it was so nebulous.
An interesting read, but not the greatest.
