Written three years before his death, The Undiscovered Self combines acuity with concision in masterly fashion and is Jung at his very best. Offering clear and crisp insights into some of his major theories, such as the duality of human nature, the unconscious, human instinct and spirituality, Jung warns against the threats of totalitarianism and political and social propaganda to the free-thinking individual. As timely now as when it was first written, Jung's vision is a salutary reminder of why we should not become passive members of the herd. With a new foreword by Sonu Shamdasani.

SYNOPSIS: "It is, unfortunately, only too clear that if the individual is not truly regenerated in spirit, society cannot be either, for society is the sum total of individuals in need of redemption."-Carl Gustav Jung. WORLD IN CRISIS In this challenging and timely book, a renowned modern psychiatrist pleads that we abandon the concept of the organization man which leads to the tyranny that blankets much of the world today. Emphatically and convincingly, he affirms that this can only be done by exploring and bringing to light the true nature of the individual human being-"the undiscovered self"...the real man as opposed to the statistical man. Dr. Jung offers no easy solutions to the terrible crisis in world affairs. Instead he declares that the alternative to world annihilation depends, not upon mass movements for good, nor on idealistic pleas for the prevalence of reason, but rather upon a recognition of the existence of good and evil in every individual and a true understanding of the inner self. -and-PRESCRIPTION FOR SALVATION Distilling the experience of a lifetime in this urgent and penetrating book, Dr. Jung affirmed that the survival of our civilization might well depend upon closing the widening gulf between the conscious and unconscious aspects of the human psyche. At once a serious warning and a long-range prescription, this provocative book makes clear that in an age when man is no longer threatened by natural catastrophes and the danger of worldwide epidemics, he is very greatly endangered by psychic changes in man. Only when the individual understands the duality of his nature-his capacity for evil as well as for good-can he begin to understand and cope with the potential threat of those in power. Carl Gustav Jung was, together with Freud and Adler, one of the three great pioneers in modern psychiatry. He was born in 1856 in Switzerland, where he studied medicine and psychiatry and later became one of Sigmund Freud's early supporters and collaborators. Eventually, serious theoretical disagreements (among them Jung's view of the religious instinct in man) led to a doctrinal and personal break between the two famed psychiatrists. Dr. Jung was the author of many books, and he lived and practiced for many years in his native Zurich.
