Psychology of the Unconscious
In this, his most famous and influential work, Jung made a dramatic break with the Freudian psychoanalytic tradition. Rather than focusing on psychopathology and its symptoms, the Swiss psychiatrist studied dreams, mythology, and literature to define the universal patterns of the psyche. It foreshadows his development of the theory of collective unconscious.

Amazing read. One can't help but appreciate Jung's depth and breadth of knowledge of mythology and religion and how aptly he draws from their significance in exploring the importance of symbolism involved in transformation of the psyche. My favorite Jung book to date. Read full review

shocked at how dated his work is - and how racist/sexist - the core ideas are interesting, fruitful, but they're mired in a lot of ethnocentric, pseudo-mystical garbage Read full review
