Publisher's Summary

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.

Could have almost been an automated text reader

What did you like best about Modern Man in Search of a Soul? What did you like least?

The text was very interesting but the read was robotic. A some point, I thought I was listening to my mac reading me a book.

a good introductory collection

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.

Great, insightful work..

For those with little knowledge of Jung, I would recommend downloading the "A Very Short Introduction to Jung" by Anthony Stevens prior to downloading this book as this should provide a sufficient background before listening to this book.

This book is based upon a collection of Jung's Lectures and I found it utterly fascinating. My only gripe would be the narrators voice which was very American (sorry!!) and I found it distracted me when I can came to re-listen to the book. However I would still recommend this book.

Deep, timeless and inspiring

This book will have you turning over it's ideas in your free time. A real eye opener and great introduction to the works of Jung. The American accent was very strong for me as a Brit, but I soon came to love it.

Jung's analysis is so clear and considerate I couldn't help but psycho-analyse myself whilst listening to his theories.

Every sentence of Jung's is a treat, laden with such insight and meaning. You will find yourself rewinding and rewinding this audio book to gain a deeper understanding of Jung's mind.

Yawn

Narrator was ok, found work a little yawn. Was hoping for some more profound insights from the age of psychoanalysis.
