The Tao of Jung: The Way of Integrity

Description:
This startling new interpretation of Jung’s life and psychology is based on the insight that he was essentially a Taoist. Drawing on Jung’s own letters, aphorisms, and other writings, David Rosen examines six crises in Jung’s personal development, from childhood revelations and youthful rebellions to his break with Freud and his later work with the I Ching. Rosen discovers many parallels between Jung’s natural world of the psyche and that of Taoist philosophy: the integration of opposites; the Great Mother as the origin of all things; the I Ching and synchronicity; the Way of Integrity and individuation; and the need to release the ego and surrender to the Self or Tao. As an increasing number of people turn to Eastern philosophy as a means of handling the many stresses of an increasingly confounding world, this illuminating introduction to both Taoism and Jungian thought provides a valuable spiritual resource for contemporary followers of the Path.
