The Undiscovered Self
In his classic, provocative work, Dr. Carl Jung-one of psychiatry's greatest minds-argues that the future depends on our ability to resist society's mass movements. Only by understanding our unconscious inner nature-"the undiscovered self"-can we gain the self-knowledge that is antithetical to ideological fanaticism. But this requires facing the duality of the human psyche-the existence of good and evil in us all. In this seminal book, Jung compellingly argues that only then can we cope and resist the dangers posed by those in power.

Once I got past the first three or so chapters (discussing, of all things the Cold War?) Jung got into his beliefs about the self and how we can understand ourself and what it means to truly know yourself. That stuff I dig. Go Jung! Read full review

very short book and not very deep reasoning. I have to say I found actually a few mistakes in Jung's thoughts such as when he says that animals can't feel or learn...that' obviously wrong but this is only a small example. I expected much more from him. Read full review
