Publisher's Summary

Not only is this a rare glimpse into the world of a master therapist; it is also an account of the 'inner void' that seems to lie at the core of addiction. 

Jung: "A case where there was an intelligent, young woman, she was a student of philosophy [with a] very good mind, where one would expect easily that she would see that I am not the parental authority. But she was utterly unable to get out of this delusion. And, in such a case, one always has recourse to dreams: it was just as if one would ask the unconscious 'Now what do you say to such a condition?' You see, she says in her conscious 'of course I know you are not my father, but I just feel like that, it is like that: I depend on you...'"

Please note: This is a historical recording, and the audio quality is reflective of the time in which it was recorded.

Jung on Jungian Psychology

This interview offers a rare chance to hear Carl Jung explain Jungian Psychology on his own terms. In a little more than an hour, Jung covers the basics from archetypes to personality types. He explains the reasons for his break with Freud and pokes fun at Otto Rank's birth trauma theory by noting that while "you fall out of Heaven," birth happens to everybody, so it is a fact not a trauma. Throughout the interview, Jung avoids dogma and rigid categorizations, explaining for example that there are no pure introverts or extroverts.

As for the sound quality, it is true that it is not the greatest. But it was recorded more than 50 years ago with magnetic tape technology that seems primitive today. Jung's English is very good but he does have a Swiss German accent that takes a few minutes to get used to. That said, this interview rewards listeners for their efforts.

German accent + low quality recording

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This recording might be useful for a Jung fan willing to sit and replay bits over and over to try to make them out . . . but otherwise, it's the worst Audible offering I've encountered so far. It SHOULD come with a warning!

Too distorted to hear

The background noise was loud, and the echo distorted the sound to the point that I rarely heard and understood what was said.

It's a crime that this is being sold

The recording quality is terrible. Add that to his incredibly thick accent and I honestly could not understand a word. That must be why this title is so cheap. But even selling this for five cents would be a rip off since it is impossible to understand.

The audio is bad.

The audio is bad, with multiple noises. I can't enjoy Carl Jung theory in his own words.

Shallow and with poor audio quality

I think that this recording is useful at best for historical purposes, but the audio quality combined with the shallowness of the information (this barely scratches the surface of Jung's ideas) makes this very dry and with very little extractable value.
