"This beautifully translated volume foregrounds the mature Jung and demonstrates how dreams, over time, will always illuminate the intentions of our souls and expose the attitudes that limit us. As John Peck notes, Jung's standpoint draws upon dramatic as well as medical perspectives to bring out the individuating purposiveness at the heart of dreaming."--John Beebe, author of Integrity in Depth

"This important seminar affords us the rare privilege of experiencing Jung as a palpably salty master teacher. Already highly regarded for his collaboration on translating Jung's Red Book, John Peck supplies a tour de force introduction that shows how Jung's reading of the unfolding action in dreams underwrites our senses of emergence, destiny, fate, and freedom. This book is a must for anyone interested in dream work and the legacy of Jungian psychology."--Stanton Marlan, president of the Pittsburgh Society of Jungian Analysts

"This is a very important book that adds a critical dimension to the Jungian literature. It provides a look into how Jung formulated his thinking in a group setting, and how he tried to put forward his conceptualizations. Readers will encounter Jung's darker side, but they will also become acquainted with his creative genius for interpreting dreams, his wide scholarship, and his penetrating intuition."--Brian Feldman, Jungian psychoanalyst

"This book is a major contribution to understanding Jung's method of dream interpretation. It elucidates more deeply than other edited and translated texts the inner dynamics of Jung's epistemology with regard to his understanding of the human psyche. The book represents an exceptionally high level of scholarship."--Eugene Taylor, author of William James on Consciousness beyond the Margin
