This startling and revealing new interpretation of Jung's life and psychology is based on the insight that he was essentially a Taoist. Drawing throughout on Jung's own letters, aphorisms, and other writings, The Tao of Jung looks at Jung through six crises of his personal development, including his break with Freud and his later work with the I Ching. In structure the book is modeled on the classic Tao Te Ching - the world's most translated book after the Bible. David.
Rosen traces parallels between Jung's natural world and the psyche and that of Taoist philosophy, exploring the integration of opposites such as shadow/persona, yin/yang, dark/light, feminine/masculine; the Great Mother as the origin of all things; the I Ching and synchronicity; the Way of Integrity and individuation; and the need to release the ego and surrender to the Self or Tao.
