Aspects of the Masculine Summary

Aspects of the Masculine by C.G. Jung

The concept of masculinity was crucial not only to Jung's revolutionary theories of the human psyche, but also to his own personal development. If, as Jung believed, "modern man is already so darkened that nothing beyond the light of his own intellect illuminates his world," then it is essential to show every man the limits of his understanding and how to overcome them. In Aspects of the Masculine Jung does this by revealing his most significant insights concerning the nature and motivations of masculinity, both conscious and unconscious, and explaining how this affects the development of the personality. Offering a unique perspective on the masculine, based upon both his personal and clinical experiences, Jung asks questions that remain as insistent as ever. He offers answers that--whether they surprise, shock or edify--challenge us to re-examine our contemporary understanding of masculinity.

Aspects of the Masculine Reviews

'The Editor's insightful introduction and careful selection of Jung's papers are invaluable in enabling the interested reader to trace Jung's personal quest on the path to the discovery of his own masculinity through his writings on the Hero; the personal and collective unconscious; the Stages of Life; the personification of the opposites; anima/animus; Mercurius and alchemy.' - Ann Casement, Analytical Psychologist/Anthropologist

'While the power and influence of the animus appears everywhere throughout Jung's writings, John Beebe has judiciously chosen just the right essays to focus our attention on the subject, making this work absolutely essential reading if we are to understand the enigma of the masculine and its role in defining the spiritual meaning of gender.' - Eugene Taylor, Harvard Medical School
