Jung: A Biography
One of the most influential thinkers of our time, Carl Gustav Jung has profoundly touched virtually all aspects of our modern culture, including medicine, religion, philosophy, literature, art, and, of course, the ever-evolving field of psychoanalysis. Despite Jung’s renown, however, the details of his life have been steeped in secrecy and controversy. Now, National Book Award-winning biographer Deidre Bair draws on new research into untapped sources to reveal the father of analytical psychology as we have never seen him before. We learn the truth about Jung’s role as ‘Agent 488’, working with the U.S. government during World War II, and about his relationship with the women in his life, and much more, as Bair separates fact from myth and misconception. This is the most authoritative biography of Jung! Bair paints an engrossing, objective, and very human portrait of the controversial genius.
