This biography – a full-scale study of Jung’s life and work by a pupil, friend, and close associate for more than thirty years – is a lucid, penetrating account of Jung’s career that stresses the essential wholeness of the man and traces the difficult path by which that wholeness was achieved.  From his earliest years to his death, through the crowded inner and outer events of his long lifetime, this study presents a view of the real Jung rather than the creature of legend. Treating side by side his theoretical apparatus and such personal matters as his relationship with Toni Wolff and his supposed flirtation with Nazism, it reveals more than any other work to date, Jung’s humanity and his genius as a “navigator of the unconscious.”
