Very cost effective too for the richness of the cultural value this book holds. Great deal! Could anyone explain me what Jung meant with that dreams have a certain 'forseeing' ability for the future, or rather, seem to 'show something that might happen in the future'?
Was this, according to Jung, because the dreamer unconsciously drives him or herself towards what is dreamt a sort of selfulfilling prophecy , or did Jung really believe that dreams could predict future events? Juraj Maslik Because of the collective unconscious and unconscious perception he could believe in both. See all 3 questions about Man and His Symbols….

My university professors never introduced me to Carl Jung. I understand why, I guess, but it's a shame that I didn't read Jung's work until now. Jungian psychology is amazing. And, unlike most other psychologists, Jung did not shy away from unexplained phenomena and the so-called "paranormal".
His theory provides insights into "unexplained" phenomena and is the only major psychological theory that includes the My university professors never introduced me to Carl Jung.
His theory provides insights into "unexplained" phenomena and is the only major psychological theory that includes the paranormal in a way that doesn't dismiss it as nonsense.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. I strongly encourage whoever is reading this sentence to purchase a copy of Man and His Symbols immediately. You won't regret it. It's one of the best books I've ever read. I plan to read the rest of Jung's writings now. View all 6 comments. May 25, Trevor rated it liked it Shelves: psychology. There are so many things about him that I find utterly fascinating and then others that I think are just crazy. I would rather think one thing or the other, but since he was obsessed with dualities, perhaps he would be happy with my conflicting and opposite feelings towards him.
There are things about his ideas that I find incredibly appealing. A personal story might help make that clear. Does this really sound likely? Well, possibly not. But then again, last year I left an intolerable job, but while I was there I found I had developed terrible headaches, or at least, not headaches as such, but more a scorching pain across the top of my head. This, I found out, was caused by the clenching of my teeth in my sleep.
This year has been incredibly busy and often quite stressful, in many ways as stressful as anything I put up with last year. The whole time I was working at the union — at least for the last four or so years — I felt unable to say anything about the direction in which the union was heading.
I think Jung would have had no trouble in diagnosing my night time teeth grinding. Of course, the things that are nice about that story are also the things that make we feel uncomfortable about Jung in general.
It is all too neat. How could we ever really know? The problem is that really no one is summed up by the face they present to the world — no, not even the dumb people — and no one is so shallow as to have dreams that have only one meaning and that the meaning a therapist helps you find. Repeatedly during this book we are told that symbols mean different things depending on the meaning they acquire within the context of the dream and the life in which they appear.
For Jung the number four is the number of completeness — I believe in Chinese it is the number for death, although this is not the kind of completeness Jung is talking of, I feel.
I worry when people are reduced to texts that can be studied and interpreted and understood on the basis of a subtext that is not apparent to the character, but is clear and unambiguous to the reader. The search for the sub-textual meaning in the lives of people when read as texts. That this veiled women who lurks in the depths of our psyches can only speak to us in dreams and is invariably right about how we should live out lives seems a hypothesis that would be impossible to prove.
Even if our sub-conscious did exist, how could we ever be certain that it only ever meant to offer us clues to help us live our lives? Why couldn't our sub-conscious be occasionally as destructive as our consciousness clearly often is.
Like that wonderful story of Apollo who after being repeatedly asked by someone if they should invade a city finally says yes because it will mean they will be killed and hence finally shut up and not ask him stupid questions any more.
The problem that needs answered first is whether or not the images thrown up in dreams are any more meaningful than those elicited from ink blots. Unfortunately, as much as I enjoyed some of the interpretations described in this book, I was left feeling very uncomfortable by the idea that people were being reduced to characters in books.
And while I understand possibly all too well the power our narratives have in framing our lives, I also understand that like all truly great books there simply are more than one reading that is both satisfying and meaningful to any cluster of symbols.
I would recommend hesitating when coming to conclusions based on the images thrown up at us from the sub-conscious — much more hesitation than we might expend in coming to conclusions on the sub-textual elements in a novel.

I have also been fascinated by journeys in literature, myth and movies.

The Origins of Life pp Cite as. The hopes of reaching the truth about reality and of penetrating the entirety of human nature are still far away from being satisfied. The source of this frustration is situated mainly in the crisis of rationality and the sciences. The truth is that the latter should be the base for the former if human reason is not to be lost in formalism. In such a perspective man becomes just a fact and a thing among the other things being described by empirical sciences which say nothing about any sense or non-sense of human existence, the question of great importance for human beings.
