Summary

In this 1912 work, Jung seeks to find symbolic meaning and purpose behind a given set of symptoms within the larger context of the psyche. It examines the fantasies of a patient whose vivid and poetic mental images enabled Jung to redefine libido as psychic energy which arises from the unconscious to manifest itself consciously in symbolic form. The work marks a theoretical divergence between Jung and Freud on the nature of the libido. Moving beyond psychopathology and its symptoms, Jung incorporated dreams, mythology, and literature to identify and define the universal patterns of the psyche. His commentary on his patient's fantasies presents a complex framework of symbolic psychiatry and foreshadows his development of the theory of the collective unconscious and the archetypes inhabiting it.

it's not "Yung" or "Yang", Joseph, it's "Yoong"!

Do you even care about what you recite? This was a big turn off for me, I did not bother with the rest of the audiobook.

Deeply thought provoking

Jung puts forward, with erudition, his conception of the unconscious and differentiates it from Freud and adler’s. Written over 100 years ago but feels vital today. Deep, philosophical psychology that is transforming my thinking. What a dude!

Great listen for aspiring psychologists.

Complex ideas fundamental to understanding psychology yet still understandable from an outside perspective with no experience however still applicable in the world. Good read, definitely recommend!
