Books by Anthony Stevens

ISBN 1-894574-06-0. Illustrated. Index. 416 pp. 2003. $50.00

In Archetype: A Natural History of the Self (1982), Anthony Stevens presented the key to opening up a scientific approach to the archetypes. At last, in a creative leap made possible by the crossfertilization of several specialist disciplines, psychiatry was integrated with analytical psychology, biology and the social sciences. The result is an immensely enriched science of human behavior. This revised and expanded Edtion of Dr. Stevens’s ground-breaking book further explores the connections between the archetypes and other fields of study.

Volume One: What Is Psychotherapy? Psychoanalysis and Sigmund Freud; Analytical Psychology and C.G. Jung.

In The Talking Cure, an immensely readable and entertaining overview in three volumes, Jungian analyst Anthony Stevens describes how the major schools of psychodynamic theory grew out of the psychology of their charismatic founders and have subsequently turned into exclusive and mutually hostile rival “sects.” Stevens argues that the best hope for the future lies in research to determine the positive therapeutic ingredients that all methods have in common. This, combined with the kind of undogmatic, open-minded humanity advocated by C. G. Jung, could lead to the adoption of a new paradigm capable of transcending the differences between them—the paradigm adopted by the new breed of “evolutionary psychotherapists.”
