Psychological Types

Psychological Types is one of Jung's most important and most famous works. First published by Routledge (Kegan Paul) in the early 1920s it appeared after Jung's so-called fallow period, during which he published little, and it is perhaps the first significant book to appear after his own confrontation with the unconscious. It is the book that introduced the world to the terms 'extravert' and 'introvert'. Though very much associated with the unconscious, in Psychological Types Jung shows himself to be a supreme theorist of the conscious. In putting forward his system of psychological types Jung provides a means for understanding ourselves and the world around us: our different patterns of behaviour, our relationships, marriage, national and international conflict, organizational functioning. Appearing in paperback for the first time this central volume from Jung's Collected Works will be essential to anyone requiring a proper understanding of Jung's psychology.

The Question of Psychological Types

The Correspondence of C. G. Jung and Hans Schmid-Guisan, 1915-1916

The Question of Psychological Types

"For nearly a century, analytical psychologists have been using Jung's typology without knowing precisely how it came into being. Reading this correspondence one finds oneself eavesdropping on the process of formulation. It is as if one can hear Jung thinking aloud as he develops seminal concepts--extraversion and introversion, the use of thinking and feeling, sensation and intuition--as superior and inferior, conscious and unconscious functions. In this beautifully edited publication, Beebe and Falzeder have made a valuable contribution to Jungian studies."--Anthony Stevens, author of "Jung: A Very Short Introduction" "This correspondence between Jung and Schmid-Guisan permits us a lively aperture into the birth and formation of a psychological theory which has enormous implications for understanding human conflict. Each man, seeking the truth of typology, argues from his own psychological bias, critiques the other, and still remains trapped within his subjective limits. Yet from their cordial but nearly fractious contretemps emerges a more evolved explanation of the epistemological frame through which we all construe our world."--James Hollis, vice president emeritus, Philemon Foundation "Jung's most important contribution to psychology is his typology based on the ideas of introversion and extraversion. These letters constitute a stunning look into the development of this major conceptual scheme in the history of psychology."--John Burnham, Ohio State University "This collection of letters is important precisely because they were preparatory to Jung's later work. The letters show his process of thinking and are informed, literate, and expressive. The book''s editors know their subject well and their scholarship is sound."--Geoffrey Cocks, Albion College

Energies and Patterns in Psychological Type

The reservoir of consciousness

Energies and Patterns in Psychological Type

This book encapsulates John Beebe’s influential work on the analytical psychology of consciousness. Building on C. G. Jung’s theory of psychological types and on subsequent clarifications by Marie-Louise von Franz and Isabel Briggs Myers, Beebe demonstrates the bond between the eight types of consciousness Jung named and the archetypal complexes that impart energy and purpose to our emotions, fantasies, and dreams. For this collection, Beebe has revised and updated his most influential and significant previously published papers and has introduced, in a brand new chapter, a surprising theory of type and culture. Beebe’s model enables readers to take what they already know about psychological types and apply it to depth psychology. The insights contained in the fifteen chapters of this book will be especially valuable for Jungian psychotherapists, post-Jungian academics and scholars, psychological type practitioners, and type enthusiasts.
