William James and C.G. Jung: Doorways to the Self (Paperback)
Steven Herrmann, a Jungian psychoanalyst and author of five previous books, has written a book with a depth and range of scholarship yet accessible and engaging to read. This book is a must for anyone interested in C. G. Jung or in William James and the history of psychology in America.Based on historical research and a nuanced reading of their works, Steven Herrmann elucidates their reflections on streamsof consciousness, psychophysics, pragmatism, pluralism, yoga, spiritual democracy, vocational dreams, synchronicity, transmarginal fields, and the Self."Doorways to the Self" is not a mere metaphor but an invitation to recognize the living spiritual reality that exists in everyperson.From Jungian psychoanalyst and past President of the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP), Murray Stein: Steven Herrmann is one of those rare individuals who can brilliantly bring intellectual prowess and visionary depth together in a graceful dance of prose and poetry. In this work he presents the many cross-overs and parallels between two similarly gifted thinkers, C. G. Jung and William James. A comparative study of these two giants of modernity is long overdue, and Steven Herrmann is perfectly prepared to cover this match in all its splendor.
