Man and His Symbols

by C. G. Jung


Man and His Symbols is the last work undertaken so Carl Jung before his death in 1961. First published in 1964, it is divided into five parts, four of which were written by associates of Jung: Marie-Louise von Franz, Joseph L. Henderson, Aniela Jaffé, and Jolande Jacobi. The book, which contains numerous illustrations, seeks to provide a clear explanation of Jung's complex theories for a wide non-specialist readership.
Jung wrote Part 1, "Approaching the Unconscious," of the book in English.
