Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies by Carl Gustav Jung
Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) argued that UFOs were a phenomenon of modern culture which demonstrated that humanity is undergoing a deep-seated cultural crisis.
In Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies, he analysed flying saucer sightings and alien abduction stories, interpreting them as expressions of our collective yearning for religious meaning in a world where traditional religion has lost its authority.
The book is one of several books by Carl Gustav Jung published by Routledge in their series ‘Routledge Classics’. The series offers both an insight into key areas of thought within psychology, as well as providing practical examples relevant to a range of subject areas.
Each volume provides a clear overview of current thinking on each topic and places it into historical context with extracts from key works.
Edited by Richard Evans, Professor of History at Birkbeck College, University of London and himself author of two major works on Nazi Germany – Telling Lies about Hitler: The Holocaust, History and the David Irving Trial and Lying About Hitler: History As Holocaust -The Holocaust And Historical Distortion; these volumes offer authoritative introductions to some important topics.
These books are essential reading for any student looking at these important themes or anyone who wants to engage more fully with debate about history or psychology from a truly international perspective.
Carl Gustav Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology. This approach explores how people develop and experience reality through interaction with others, their environment, and themselves.
His theories have been influential in psychiatry, anthropology, archaeology, literature, philosophy and religious studies.
Many of his ideas remain controversial today because they challenge many fundamental assumptions held by Western thinkers since late antiquity – such as dualism – but do so using many sources other than his own prior knowledge of alchemy.
