Description

Jung and Eastern Thought is an assessment of the impact of the East on Jung’s life and teaching. Along with the strong and continuing interest in the psychology of Carl Jung is a growing awareness of the extent to which Eastern Thought especially Indian ideas, influenced his thinking. This book indentifies those influences that he found useful and those he rejected. In Hindu, Buddhist, and Taoist cultures, yoga is a central conception and practice. Jung was at once fascinated and critical of yoga.

Part I of the book examine’s Jung’s encounter with yoga and his strong warning against the uncritical adoption of yoga by against the uncritical adoption of yoga by the modern West. In Part II Jung’s love/hate relationship with Eastern thought is examined in light of his attitude toward karma and rebirth, Kundalini yoga, mysticism, and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Cowards’ observations are rounded out by contributions from J Borelli and J Jordens.

Dr Borelli’s Annotated Bibliography is an invaluable contribution to bibliographic material on jung, yoga, and Eastern Thought. A special feature is the introduction by Joseph Henderson,
Jung’s most senior North American student and one of the few Jungians to have recognized the important influence of the East on Jung’s thinking.
