Jung and the Jungians on Myth: An Introduction

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2002 - Religion - 224 pages
In this book Steven Walker carefully leads the reader through the fundamentals of the psychology that underlies Jung's theory of myth. He defines key terms and distinguishes dream from fantasy in psychological experience. He then traces the lineage of Jungian theory from Jung through such disciples as Van Franz and Neumann to contemporary archetypal psychology. By applying Jungian psychology to an array of myths to illustrate core concepts of this theoretical tradition, Walker fills a conspicuous gap in the current literature on Jung. --from back cover.
