Dr. Richard I. Evans interviews Jung, giving us a unique understanding of Jung’s many archetypes theories, human behavior-patterns, Anima & Animus, dream-analysis, his relationship with Sigmund Freud and his theories in general. Jung comes acrross as caring, funny and cristal clear and highly personable human healer. The dialogue in this volume is the actual transcript of the author’s filmed interviews with Dr. Carl Jung in Zurich, Switzerland, in summer 1957 four years before death. It presents the most exciting and lucid presentation of Jung’s fundamental concepts yet recorded. Jung, reacting spontaneously to an orderly sequence of questions, commented on Freud, Adier, and on their theories; and on topics such as: The Unconscious, the Role of Sex, Introvert-Extrovert Theory and Motivation; and Psychological Testing, Psychotherapy, and Mental Telepathy. In an added section. Professor Evans presents a transcript of his filmed interview with Dr. Richard Evans — not a great interviewer.
