    This is definitely a classic in Jungian Studies but in re reading it I am struck by what a completely patriarchal and masculine view Edward Edinger takes This is of course due in large part to the time it was written but it's also

This book is about the individual's journey to psychological wholeness known in analytical psychology as the process of individuation Edward Edinger traces the stages in this process and relates them to the search for meaning through encounters with symbolism in religion myth drea. My initial attraction to Jung and the Jungians was twofold First Jung himself seemed to intelligently address what I was experiencing under the influence of psychedelic drugs Second he seemed to offer some insight into religion the Christian versions of which had surrounded and confounded me since childhoodIn fact Jung has much to offer in both of these regards He was in the old CIA phrase experienced as regards hallucinagens and he did have a hermeneutical talent for translating religion into modern secular language his father having been a pastorThe language he chose to utilize at the outset of his professional career was that of psychiatry and this association as well as my own unhappinesses led me to embark on a decade of its study The result was somewhat disenchanting I had hoped for science for convincing proofs and research programmes but I had found in the literature of depth psychology the waters Jung swam in little of that Instead what I found in both his own analytical psychology and in Freud s psychoanalysis were ideologies ideologies with a certain power and relevance to many but without the power to compel the assent of outsiders Both sciences were pseudo scientific in that there was little emphasis on objectivity and too much skewing to the personal terms of their founders It should however be noted that modern American psychoanalysis because of its commitment to medical models and training is not entirely subject to such criticismJung s personality had an immense influence on his system and on his followers Much of the literature has a hagiographic character when the great man is mentioned and the study of his biography is a substantial portion of what passes for training in analytical psychology Therapy aims towards recreating Jung s truths in the experience and personality of the analysand Since this often happens and people continue to spend enormous amounts on such treatment Jung s theories are proven but only in the very weak sense of William James will to believeMy own encounter with depth psychology and with Jung doubtless shaped me to some extent It certainly did give me insights into what might be going on in religion in art and in the eccentricities of those deemed psychotic Perhaps it was worth all the time and the effort to achieve such thingsEdinger s book is a treatment of Jung s developmental theory what he termed individuation and what I have implicitly criticized above The emphasis of individuation theory is on later life adulthood through old age stages of life not much addressed by classical psychoanalysis

I just started reading this book and am only up to page 51 but I am absolutely loving it so far It really breaks down our growth process in a way that is very relateable and understandable In my opinion its theory s fit so well with the dysfunction of some people that I know and I love that it pinpoints exactly what part of the growth process went awry and may have become stuckIt also helped me on a personal level be accepting of my attempts of separation from ego Right from the get go on page five it describes the necessity of Ego Self Separation in order to grow and self individuate It writes how the first half of life is focused on this aspect and once it is achieved then there can be a an Ego Self Union in the second half of life Very much what I am attempting to do now Update 32115 I am only at page 96 but this book has already blown my mind It is incredibly profound and one of those rare books that shockingly seems to have the answer as to how the world humanity psychology and G d all fit together beautifully Tremendous amounts of food for thought I suspect I will be rereading this book a few times The only caveat I would put on it is that it is probably most beneficial when one is in the right space in their self development to be open and to process the ideas in this book It is very much like the movie Matrix s no going back choice of either taking the blue or red pill It may alter forever the way you view the world I know it already has for me Update 32715 So much for jumping the gun and writing a review on a book before I finished the book This book has four sections The first section is about 100 pages I cant rave enough about the first section Everything I said above plus I will try to add to it once I reread the first 100 pages againThe rest of the book is a complete different story I had to force myself to slog through it It almost has nothing to do with the first 100 pages I wanted to read it to make sure it did not expand or delve deeper into the area he covered in the first section He did not Its worth buying the book for the first section its that eye opening Feel free to skip the rest of the book unless the chapter titles appeal to you Update April162016 I just re read the first 100 pages and I love the incredible insight and wisdom I do plan on reading the first 100 pages for a third time and writing something up on it I also happen to be reading a book by Rabbi Berkowitz examining Martin Buber and it struck me that Buber s I It and I Thou is euivalent to the Ego and the Self subjectivity and objectivity This incredibly clarified individuation for me Really good stuff and I am thrilled that it opened a new world for me Hopefully much to come
