Despite the growing interest in Jungian approaches to curriculum and instruction, there has yet to be an English text dealing with this subject until now. Here, author Clifford Mayes offers his unique perspective on how Jungian ideas and techniques for psycho-spiritual discovery and growth play out concretely in a wide variety of educational contexts. In this book, he draws together over seven years of research to extensively and systematically outline the educational consequences of Jungian psychology. Jung and Education: · Details the psychology of C.G. Jung · Provides abundant examples and quotes from Jung himself · Explains the central concepts in Jungian psychology · Examines the archetypal nature of the student-teacher relationship · Exams the "eight pillars" of a Jungian theory of education · Provides examples of "archetypal reflectivity" in action in which the teacher reflects upon his/her sense of calling and classroom practices in archetypal terms Teachers and teacher educators at the undergraduate and graduate levels in courses in methodology, social history of education, and educational psychology should use this book.

Editorial Reviews

Reference and Research Book News
Mayes … describes how Jung's theories on the catharsis/education cycle and balance have affected, and will continue to affect education. Mayes begins by examining Jungian psychology, including the rise of the ego and the emerging self, and then assembles the elements of Jungian pedagogy, including curriculum and instruction, transference, the teacher as an archetype of spirit, and Jung himself as an educationalist.
This is a useful book for those new to Jung, or those already using Jungian theory. Highly recommended.
Teachers College Record
Many student teachers will no doubt be grateful to Professor Mayes for his invitation to journey with Carl Gustav Jung as sage and guide. Ever the practical pedagogue, Professor Mayes has included Jungian case studies and exercises for group and individual reflection, making this not just an account of his spiritual journey but in fact a handy text book for faculty use and in the self-education beloved by Jung.
This is a useful book for those new to Jung, or those already using Jungian theory. Highly recommended.
