Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'The author's meticulous research illustrates something that has increasingly been suspected by Jung scholars, that the psychologist made extensive use of other people's work to illuminate his conceptions of archetypes, collective unconscious, introversion, extraversion, dream analysis and complexes, often referring to his approach as complex psychology.' Economist

'Shamdasani has gone far in making the history of Jungian psychology truly professional. His is a superb achievement.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'To write a book like this and combine originality, historical accuracy, an understanding of improvisation in historical actors - all without partisanship - is truly special.' Medical History

Présentation de l'éditeur

Occultist, Scientist, Prophet, Charlatan - C. G. Jung has been called all these things and after decades of myth making, is one of the most misunderstood figures in Western intellectual history. This book is the first comprehensive study of the origins of his psychology, as well as providing a new account of the rise of modern psychology and psychotherapy. Based on a wealth of hitherto unknown archival materials it reconstructs the reception of Jung's work in the human sciences, and its impact on the social and intellectual history of the twentieth century. The book creates a basis for all future discussion of Jung, and opens new vistas on psychology today.

Meet a man you thought you knew... 24 novembre 2004
Par Peter FYFE - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Shamdasani's "cubist history" of Jung's core projects places them in their historical and intellectual context. His meticulous research incorporates an extensive review of the writing of Jung's contemporaries, Jung's own papers, Jungian commentary, and even some of Jung's personal marginalia. The scholarship alone is staggering.

Be warned: this is no anecdotal hagiography for the converted but a serious exploration of the man and his thinking. Shamdasani's style takes no prisoners. If you are heavily invested in Jungian ideas, or those allegedly attributed to Jung, you may discover the intellectual rug pulled out from under you without ceremony. Brace yourself.

But do engage, as I dared to. By his apparent scepticism of all psychologies and patent love of opening once tightly sealed black boxes, Shamdasani allows you to re-discover Jung and marvel at the unparalleled breadth and depth of the work of one of our great minds. If you square up and look this author and his subject in the eye, I'd be surprised if you are not profoundly shaken or at least significantly stirred, as I have been.

The best history of how Jung's ideas emerged 27 février 2006
Par Robin Robertson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Jung and the Making of Modern Psychology is a landmark in Jungian scholarship. The author, Sonu Shamdasani, is a historian of psychology, with a specialization in Jungian psychology.

This book is both a gift and a challenge for Jungian psychology. As a gift, it provides a picture of an era in which new ideas were in the air. It carefully traces how those ideas emerged and eventually crystalized in Jung's psychology. As a challenge, it points to areas still unresolved, hopes Jung had for psychology that have largely gone unfulfilled by his successors.

Early in the book, Shamdasani says "once, when asked who he was, Miles Davis replied that he had changed the course of music several times in his life. Something similar could be said of Jung." By the end of his life, however, Jung felt that he had failed in his mission: "I was unable to make people see what I am after. I am practically alone . . . I have failed in my foremost task, to open people's eyes to the fact that man has a soul and there is a buried treasure in the field and that our religion and philosophy are in a lamentable state. Why indeed should I continue to exist?"

Perhaps by providing this history of ideas, filled both with how Jung came to his model of psychology, and with his hopes for the future of such a psychology, Sonu Shamdasani has provided a starting point for Jungians to help prove that Jung did not fail in his task. The appearance of his book is a monumental event in Jungian scholarship.

One of the most original books I have found in many years, a critique on the history of Jungian Psychoanalysis as academic as possible; no wonder why the author was the only scholar handling the Jung's Red Book's publishing...

Par Hapax Existentiel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a rather "safe," narrow reading of one aspect of Jung's professional writings. It was written and published after 2000, the year the author became the paid "court historian" of the Jung family and estate. This fact compromises the "objectivity" of all of this author's scholarship on Jung published since that time. Indeed, only family-approved scholars will be allowed to fact-check the many references to unpublished Jung material in Switzerland, thus insuring a biased appraisal consistent with the marketing goals of the Jung industry.

The author asks no new questions, nor is there anything that would stimulate further research. The main thesis -- that Jung was fashioning a "psychology" (very loosely interpreted, and not ever defined by the author) that would be the foundation of all other theories of psychology. As others (Bishop and Noll in particular) have demonstrated in their work, Jung's esoteric notions of the collective unconscious, archetypes, and so on, was a proposal for a foundational theory for ALL varieties of human thought and behavior -- including the foundation of all religions/religious ideas, mathematics and the sciences (biology, physics -- especially quantum mechanics).

For those of us who are fans of deep engagement with Jung's life and work, the many volumes of Paul Bishop's work on Jung make him the true preeminent Jung scholar.
