Description

Noted analyst and author Murray Stein explains what the psychological process of transformation, more commonly known as a midlife crisis, actually is, and what it means for an individual to experience it. Consciously working through this life stage can lead people to become who they have always potentially been. Indeed, Stein suggests, transformation is an essential human task. Stein first details how this process of transformation emerges and develops in an individual. Looking at C. G. Jung's life, Stein then explains how transformative images stimulate the transformation process by suggesting new ways of thinking and living. Finally, Stein examines the process in the lives of Jung, Picasso, and Rembrandt, whose experiences of transformation led to even greater creativity and freedom. For those people who would like to learn what a meaningful second half of life could be like, Transformation is an inspiring place to start.show more
