Jung begins this section with the sentence, "The personality is seldom, in the beginning, what it will be later on. This is clear when we reflect on the various stages of childhood and adolescence, most specifically, when we think about the transformation in males from boyhood to manhood and a female's transformation from girlhood into womanhood.
Cultural anthropologists have written extensively on the rituals surrounding this life-transforming event within traditional societies. Here is Jung's next sentence, "For this reason the possibility of enlarging it personality exists, at least during the first half of life. Simple biology. The most obvious example is the enlargement of personality a baby makes in the first few years, from being an infant to being a walking, talking toddler.
And so biology propels the toddler thru the phases of childhood and adolescence right up until the time when the person becomes an adult. But what about the second half of life, where the enlargements are less biological and more psychic and subtle? Here are Jung's words on the topic, "Therefore, if some great idea takes hold of us from outside, we must understand that it takes hold of us only because something in us responds to it and goes out to meet it.
This internal movement is underscored when Jung writes, "Richness of mind consists in mental receptivity, not in the accumulation of possessions. Keeping on this topic, a man who has spent many years as a Jungian psychoanalyst told me that when the soul cries out for enlargement and one does not heed this internal call, there is a change, a shift, but the shifting and changing can manifest physically.
Perhaps this is why we have an epidemic of obesity in the United States: a large portion of the population will not rise to the challenge to enlarge spiritually and thus the body responds by enlarging physically. Nietzsche speaks again and again on how the arts, creativity and the spiritual path pose challenges to the individual soul. If an artist is truly an artist, one will expand and enlarge one's personality, continually redefining oneself, a series of rebirths, one after another. Of course, one need not be a Picasso or Mondrian; rather, one is called to be an artist of one's own life.
And what of those people who lives are smug and self-satisfied, refusing to transform? Here are Jung's words, "He who is truly and hopelessly little will always drag the revelation of the greater down to the level of his littleness. Perhaps this seeing lies behind the mid-life crisis so common in the modern world. View all 10 comments. Oct 10, Maica rated it it was amazing Shelves: psychology , cg-jung.
An Illustration of Loki Jung, among the many psychologists of his time, is the only one who made extensive efforts to bridge Eastern practices and beliefs which are characterized by the power of the collective in shaping the workings of the mind. This book made me understand more the Analytical theory of Jung at a conceptual level and I can say that Jung has been very influential to me.

He explored spirituality, mysticism and religious belief not to criticize them, but to recognize their importance and impact on psychology.
The archetypes discussed on this book are merely symbolism akin to literary themes, but his writing resonates with Freud's style although tinged with a more mythological flavor, in a sense. Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology. He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar's gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart through the world.
I read it many years ago but I still remember my impressions of it as soon as I saw the cover. The book is also filled with illustrations and woodcut prints from medieval periods.

View all 6 comments. Especially liked the discussion of the Trickster archetype and its development through the ages. Four selections from across Jung's collected works. These are the standard Hull translation lifted wholesale from other editions. The archetypes covered at: the mother; rebirth; the spirit; the trickster. There is not important or even necessary connection between the selections in this book. If I remember they were all taken from different publications and the only thing they have in common is that they are all chapters or partial chapters on archetypes.
Jung certainly wrote in depth about mo Four selections from across Jung's collected works. Jung certainly wrote in depth about more archetypes; I haven't the slightest idea why they picked these four. There's no mention of them, nor an explanation for why these were taken. The selections are really unbalanced with the last two being significantly longer and more detailed than the first two. This isn't much use as an introduction to Jung, as it doesn't even have a primer to orient the reader, and the material is among his most ambiguous and dense.

His historical are interesting, but he jumps around and does little to help the reader keep pace. I give it two stars because I thought the writing was still interesting, if redundant. I think the material should stay in the original packaging, so to speak. These peace mail, grab bags books aren't much good to anyone and don't do much for helping Jung's legacy.

Here's a gateway to understand women, personal development, spirit symbolism psychic integration , and the trickster archetype. Personally, I've found it especially helpful in understanding the mother-complex: the way a woman's relationship with her mother either diminishes her feminine qualities or intensifies them.
The Mother Jung presents a survey of psychological types associated with the mother-complex in daughters. The symptoms range from total immersion—identification with the daughter rol Here's a gateway to understand women, personal development, spirit symbolism psychic integration , and the trickster archetype.
The symptoms range from total immersion—identification with the daughter role to complete rejection of it, from intensification of the daughter's feminine traits to complete diminishing of them. Rebirth Jung delineates the types of psychological development transformations individuals are susceptible to. Always good to know where one stands with regard to personal growth. I've found Jung's analysis of The Cave Sura quite remarkable.
Spirit This is where Jung describes the word "spirit" from a psychological standpoint.
He associates the term with the collective unconscious and its grand subliminal reworkings in one's life. Jung recourses to dreams and fairy tales in his discussion. His interpretation of the quaternity theme—or the opposing triangles—is illuminating, to say the least; their association with feminine and masculine energies. Trickster This is the advocate of the collective human shadow. He lurks behind that mortal immured by his own hubris, precipitating his final fall in the form of a "trick" played on oneself. Jung doesn't give this example; he focuses on mythical and historical aspects and finally draws a general line between this figure and the individual shadow.
Jan 13, Karen Floyd rated it really liked it Shelves: psychology-mental-health. Was hoping to find "On the Interpretation of Dreams" since I am thoroughly tired of my repetitive ones and thought that might be helpful.
But this was all the Jung in the St. Andrew's library, which is where I was last night. Read the Mother Archetype last night, and was rather disappointed since I'd hoped for more explanation and interpretation than results of bad mothering. And, of course, I could instantly see myself in some of the Bad Mother examples he gave!
Not an easy read as the book was Was hoping to find "On the Interpretation of Dreams" since I am thoroughly tired of my repetitive ones and thought that might be helpful. Not an easy read as the book was full of psychological terms, but worthwhile. My favorite section was the one on Rebirth, though the one on Fairy Stories sure had a Wow!
Jul 14, Claire Bogan is currently reading it. I read half of this book one day in the library, digressing from a research paper that I was supposed to be writing. The Four Archetypes, having nothing to do with my research topic, endeared me to Jung immensely and inspired me to incorporate some of his more relevant philosophies as sources in my final paper.
I am rereading it in full with particular interest in the section on rebirth.
