Overview

This book compares the theology of Tillich with the psychology of Jung, arguing that they were both concerned with the recovery of a valid religious sense for contemporary culture. Paul Tillich, Carl Jung and the Recovery of Religion explores in detail the diminution of the human spirit through the loss of its contact with its native religious depths, a problem on which both spent much of their working lives and energies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"His book makes for very invigorating reading as page after page reveals a really erudite encounter between Jung and Tillich… Read this book, then, for a masterful discussion of two truly sophisticated, spiritually developed individuals." – Tony Woolfson, International Journal of Jungian Studies, Vol. 1 No. 1, March 2009

"I found the author’s synthesis of Jung and Tillich a compelling analysis of the nature of the human condition... This important book illuminates that aspect of Jung’s thought which has too often been dismissed pejoratively by uninformed critics as ‘mysticism.’"George Bright, Journal of Analytical Psychology, Vol. 55, 2010
