Zu diesem Buch

Carl Gustav Jung has always been a popular but never a fashionable thinker. His ground-breaking theories about dream interpretation and psychological types have often been overshadowed by allegations that he was anti-Semitic and a Nazi sympathizer. Most accounts have unfortunately been marred by factual errors and quotes taken out of context; this has been due to the often partisan sympathies of those who have written about him. This book provides a more accurate and comprehensive account of Jung's controversial opinions about art, politics, and race.
