Book review: C.G. Jung, by Anthony Storr

Anthony Storr was a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst whose practice was influenced by Jung although he was not an uncritical Jungian. In this book he adopts a biographical approach and emphasises how profoundly Jung's method of analytical psychology was influenced by his own psychological development.

Storr published his book in 1973, twelve years after Jung's death in 1961. Jung's contribution to our conception of human nature had so far been underestimated, Storr thought . He attributed this comparative neglect to Jung's inability to express himself clearly in his voluminous writings. In this he differed from Freud, who wrote with such clarity and conviction that he stilled criticism and was likely to over-convince the reader. [More]
