Synopsis: The Red Book was always a true legend in the Jungian movement. It was thought to reveal the great secrets of the master's personal and sometimes controversial life. Now, it would be untrue to say that Jung condoned or encouraged infidelity. However, he did experience it as necessary, in his case, to love more than one woman, with all the attendant guilt and suffering, in order to plumb the depths of his soul. His testament to the reality of the psyche is revealed in his Red Book and explicated here by Jungian psychologist Maria Helena Guerra.
Critique: A seminal study of impressive detail and informative commentary, "The Love Drama of C.G.Jung: As Revealed In His Life And In His Red Book" is an exceptional and critically accomplished contribution to the growing library of Jungian studies. An informed and informative read for students of Jung, "The Love Drama of C.G.Jung: As Revealed In His Life And In His Red Book" is very highly recommended for personal, professional, and academic library Jungian Studies reference collections and reading lists.
