This provocative account of the origins, influences, and legacy of Jungian psychology is perhaps even more relevant today than it was when first published in 1979. By delineating the social, personal, religious, and cultural contexts of Jung's system of psychology, Homans identifies the central role of depth psychology in the culture of modernity. In this new edition, Homans has added an extensive foreword linking the core of Jungian psychology to contemporary works it has shaped--such as those of M. Scott Peck and Clarissa Pinkola Estes--that proclaim the power of Jungian concepts and theories to heal the alienated and isolated self in today's world.
""Jung in Context" is an intellectual triumph. . . . Utilizes the resources of biography, psychology, sociology, and theology to probe the genesis of a psychological system which is currently enjoying a wide following. . . . A splendid job."--Lewis R. Rambo, "Psychiatry"
"Anyone seeking an introduction to Jung's thought will find a masterful precis here."--Jan Goldstein, "Journal of Sociology"
"An unusually perceptive and clearly written book. . . . An important advance in the understanding of Jung, and Homans's methodology sets the stage for all future efforts to understand psychological innovators."--Herbert H. Stroup, "Christian Century"
