Like M. Esther Harding, Emma Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz, Barbara Hannah (1891-1986) took Jung’s message to heart and amplified it according to her own experience.

ISBN 0-919123-96-1. Index. 128 pp. 2001. $25.00

This book grew out of the author’s desire to pinpoint key passages in Jung’s writings that have nourished him for years. It provides readers with the main ingredients of Jung’s work and suggests how they might flavor a life in search of meaning. Each chapter is headed by an appetizer, which is then fleshed out by the author’s commentary—an elucidation or experiential interpretation, sometimes both—meant to stimulate the reader to ruminate on the unconscious factors that influence us all. Those seeking a more robust meal will be amply rewarded by following up the references.

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.
