    Modern Man in Search of a Soul is the classic introduction to the thought of Carl Jung. Along with Freud and Adler, Jung was one of the chief founders of modern psychiatry. In this book, Jung examines some of the most contested and crucial areas in the field of analytical psychology: dream analysis, the primitive unconscious, and the relationship between psychology and religion.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who's seeking a basic familiarity with what Jung was going after. While some basic familiarity with Freud and Addler before hand would be helpful, he puts his references in enough context that they're not required, and these lectures can and do stand on their own.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In the first few lectures, Jung focuses primarily on the therapeutic process. Over time, we begin to see just how deep his theory goes, and that his idea of "therapy" is nothing less than the completion of man as himself. I found this progression to be incredibly easy to follow and to show how a clinical psychologist can make this move into the philosophical.


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Prince’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've not heard any of Prince's other performances. I found him to be a little monotone (ala Ben Stein) and some of the accents weren't where I would have thought to put them, but his pronunciation was clean, his delivery crisp, and despite the somewhat academic tone, I would certainly be willing to listen to other texts he's narrated.
