Controversial for his right-wing views and sexual promiscuity, Jung's writings showed him to be an original and innovative thinker. They have uncovered, amongst others, the universal symbols of the collective unconscious and the role of dreams in the journey towards psychic wholeness. With his theory of synchronicity and his interest in myth and oriental religion, he represents a direct antithesis to Freudian thought. In recent years Swiss psychologist Carl Jung has emerged as a favourite philosopher, a hero of the New Age and a source of "alternative" modes of thought. This biography examines in depth the life and work of this one-time protege of Sigmund Freud, who later emerged from the shadow of his mentor after a famous quarrel which dogged him for most of his life.
