This book discerns such a pattern in Jungs life. The patterns of the myths most experience are limited to immediate environments. Yet some lead lives of such wide-ranging, lasting effects that they serve as creative influences thru a broad spectrum of fields of human endeavor.The effects of Jungs life & work have influenced anthropology, ethnology, theology, parapsychology, physics, psychiatry & psychotherapy. This is a study of the myth of his life.Jung was the 1st modern scientist to take seriously the unconscious & to remain in lifelong dialog with it. Dreams are a means of contact with the unconscious. He paid attention to his & to what they had to communicate concerning his development & the development of the collective life of his day.Von Franz, who worked closely with Jung for over 25 years, traces the development of concepts such as the collective unconscious, archetypes, psychological types, active imagination & individuation from their origins in specific dreams he had to their documentation in his publications over 65 years. C.G. Jung: His Myth in Our Time is a portrait which relates inner & outer events to the development of the individual, both on the personal level of the man & on the more universal level of a 20th-century prophet.Jung was one of those whose sensitivity to the collective unconscious gave him insight into the problems of his time. His psychology attempts to order & give perspective to those problems & to indicate the measures required to avoid the eras psychic dangers.This isnt an academic biography, nor a primer of his thought. Its a history of the growth & development of one mans creative powers during a lifetime of dialog with the unconscious—a dialog from which emerges the myth of a great man in our time.Von Franz was born in Munich in 1915 of Austrian parents, who moved to Switzerland in 18. She became Swiss, earning a classical languages PhD from the University of Zurich. She met Jung in 53, working with him from 34 til his 61 death. A medieval Latinist, alchemy was her field of collaboration with him. To two of his major works, Aion & Mysterium Coniunctionis, she contributed studies- one of these, a translation with commentary of Aurora Consurgens, was published separately. Other works in English translation include Number & Time &, with Emma Jung, The Grail Legend. She was a psychotherapist & a founder of the Jung Institute in Zurich, where she taught since 48. She lectured extensively in Europe & the USA. She died in 98.Translators NoteNote of AcknowledgmentIntroductionThe underground GodThe storm-lanternThe physicianMirror-symmetry & the polarity of the psycheThe journey to the beyondThe anthroposThe mandalaCoincidentia oppositoriumMans morning knowledge & evening knowledgeMercuriusThe philosophers stoneBreakthrough to the unus mundusIndividual & societyLe cri de MerlinBibliographyBiographical ChronologyIndex
