Jung’s Ethics : Moral Psychology and His Cure of Souls

English | 2017 | ISBN: 1138731757 | 241 Pages | PDF | 2.23 MB

This volume presents the first organized study of Jung’s ethics. Drawing on direct quotes from all of his collected works, interviews, and seminars, psychoanalyst and religious scholar Dan Merkur provides a compendium of Jung’s thoughts on various topics and themes that comprise his theoretical corpus – from the personal unconscious, repression, dreams, good and evil, and the shadow, to collective phenomena such as the archetypes, synchronicity, the psychoid, the paranormal, God, and the Self, as well as his contributions to clinical method and technique including active imagination, inner dialogue, and the process of individuation and consciousness expansion. The interconnecting thread in Merkur’s approach to the subject matter is to read Jung’s work through an ethical lens.
What comes to light is how Merkur systematically portrays Jung as a moralist, but also as a complex thinker who situates the human being as an instinctual animal struggling with internal conflict and naturalized sin. Merkur exposes the tension and development in Jung’s thinking by exploring his innovative clinical-technical methods and experimentation, such as through active imagination, inner dialogue, and expressive therapies, hence underscoring unconscious creativity in dreaming, symbol formation, engaging the paranormal, and artistic productions leading to expansions of consciousness, which becomes a necessary part of individuation or the working through process in pursuit of self-actualization and wholeness. In the end, we are offered a unique presentation of Jung’s core theoretical and clinical ideas centering on an ethical fulcrum, whereby his moral psychology leads to a cure of souls.
Jung’s Ethics will be of interest to academics, scholars, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of Jungian studies and analytical psychology, ethics, moral psychology, philosophy, religious studies, and mental health professionals focusing on the integration of humanities and psychoanalysis.

Re-Encountering Jung :
Analytical Psychology and Contemporary Psychoanalysis

English | 2018 | ISBN: 1138225347 | 238 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Since the split between Freud and Jung, psychoanalysis and analytical psychology have largely developed in an atmosphere of mutual disregard. Only in recent years have both discourses shown signs of an increasing willingness to engage. Re-Encountering Jung: Analytical Psychology and Contemporary Psychoanalysis is the first edited volume devoted to a reconciliation between these two fields. The contributors explore how Jungian thinking influences, challenges, and is challenged by recent developments in the psychoanalytic mainstream. In examining the nature of the split, figures from both sides of the conversation seek to establish lines of contrast and commonality so as to reflect an underlying belief in the value of reciprocal engagement.
Each of the chapters in this collection engages the relationship between Jungian and psychoanalytic thinking with the intention of showing how both lines of discourse might have something to gain from attending more to the voice of the other. While several of the contributing authors offer new perceptions on historical concerns, the main thrust of the collection is in exploring contemporary debates.
Re-Encountering Jung reflects a unique undertaking to address one of the longest-standing and most significant rifts in the history of depth psychology. It will be of great interest to all academics, students and clinicians working within the fields of psychoanalysis and analytical psychology.

With many everyday examples of how to keep the space positive and safe, and patients calm, this book could transform your working life.
“An overwhelming number of persons suffer from mental health problems across their life span. In this important book, the authors describe the critical issues in the psychiatric care of individuals with autism. Written by a father (who is an experienced psychologist), and his daughter (who has suffered from psychiatric disorders), it gives a detailed account of the difficulties faced by persons with autism and related disorders, especially as they transition into adulthood, and sheds light on the challenges faced both by patients and staff. I enjoyed reading the book and recommend it both to parents and caregivers of persons with autism and other developmental disabilities.” – Mohammad Ghaziuddin, MD Professor of Psychiatry, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA
