The Portable Jung

By C. G. Jung | Contributed to by Campbell

Joseph Campbell edited this collection of Carl Jung’s writings as a primer on the work of Jung. Well represented in lengthy excerpts are Jung’s work on the collective unconscious, the ego, and psychological types, as well as works that one might classify as “occult” or spiritual, such as “Individual Dream Symbolism in Relation to Alchemy” and “On Synchronicity”. In his preface, Campbell states his intention that the reader of “The Portable Jung” will come away with an understanding of analytic philosophy and “a new realization of the relevance of the mythic lore of all peoples to his own psychological OPUS MAGNUM of the imagination.”

Quotations from this Title
Jung's concept is that the aim of one's life, psychologically speaking, should be not to suppress or repress, but to come to know one's other side, and both to enjoy and to control the whole range of one's capacities; i.e., in the full sense, to "know oneself." And he terms that faculty of the psyche by which one is rendered capable of this work of gaining release from the claims of but one or the other of any pair-of-opposites, the Transcendent Function . . .
