    One thought on “Jung Contra Freud: The 1912 New York Lectures on the Theory of Psychoanalysis”

    1. If you've read both Sigmund Freud and C.G.Jung's psychoanalysis, this book is like a movie. Not a great movie, but a one-time-watch movie.Not a prime-time movie, but a thursday night movie.

    2. Although an odd reading experience without having the knowledge of Freud to back me up, this provides a clear and concise breakdown of psychoanalysis, including the differences between Freud and Jung's thoughts.

    3. This book should not have been a reading for seminar, but it's a clear enough explanation of psychoanalysis. These lectures are before Jung gets into the crazy ' collective unconscious' mystical stuff.
