Psychology of the Unconscious by C. G. Jung
The next time someone gives you side-eye for caring about your dreams or following your intuition, point them to Carl Gustav Jung.
The renowned Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychology did more than most to legitimize interest in our unconscious lives.
He lived long enough to write one last book, which he called the most important work. Psychology of the Unconscious is that work.
Jung became interested in psychic phenomena at age 21, when he nearly died from a burst appendix and experienced a vision of his dead father appearing at his bedside.
What has made Jung’s work remarkable, though, is how much it has influenced so many different fields—architecture and art theory; literary criticism; cultural studies; political science; not to mention self-help and business writing.
In fact, if you follow any of those topics on social media, there’s a good chance you’ll come across citations of Jung without even realizing it. It also seems fair to say we’d all be living very different lives if not for C. G.
