Overview

This revolutionary reassessment of Jung's research, conclusions, and character asserts that Jung falsified his key research in developing the theory of a collective unconsciousness. Noll also reveals evidence that Jung founded a profascist religious cult in which he intended to be worshipped as an "Aryan-Christ", propagated racist and ant-Semitic theories, and practiced polygamy for much of his life.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Clinical psychologist Noll surveys the intellectual, cultural, and philosophical movements active in central Europe at the turn of the century and traces their influence on Jung and his circle. Without disparaging Jung's contribution to psychology, Noll demonstrates how Jung's experiences with occultism, neopaganism, and German utopianism led him to formulate such concepts as the collective unconscious, archetypes, and individuation. Contending that Jung, after his break with Freud, modeled his school of psychoanalysis on ancient mystery religions, Noll shows how followers continued to perpetuate this personality cult, ignoring Jung's early life and work. This fine work of scholarship is recommended for academic and public libraries.-Lucille Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal.
