Description

Modern Man in Search of a Soul is the classic introduction to the thought of Carl Jung. Along with Freud and Adler, Jung was one of the chief founders of modern psychiatry. In this book, Jung examines some of the most contested and crucial areas in the field of analytical psychology: dream analysis, the primitive unconscious, and the relationship between psychology and religion.

Could have almost been an automated text reader

What did you like best about Modern Man in Search of a Soul? What did you like least?

The text was very interesting but the read was robotic. A some point, I thought I was listening to my mac reading me a book.

a good introductory collection

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to anyone who's seeking a basic familiarity with what Jung was going after. While some basic familiarity with Freud and Addler before hand would be helpful, he puts his references in enough context that they're not required, and these lectures can and do stand on their own.

What did you like best about this story?

In the first few lectures, Jung focuses primarily on the therapeutic process. Over time, we begin to see just how deep his theory goes, and that his idea of "therapy" is nothing less than the completion of man as himself. I found this progression to be incredibly easy to follow and to show how a clinical psychologist can make this move into the philosophical.

Have you listened to any of Christopher Prince’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've not heard any of Prince's other performances. I found him to be a little monotone (ala Ben Stein) and some of the accents weren't where I would have thought to put them, but his pronunciation was clean, his delivery crisp, and despite the somewhat academic tone, I would certainly be willing to listen to other texts he's narrated.

WOW ... why wasn't I exposed to Jung much earlier?

Would you consider the audio edition of Modern Man in Search of a Soul to be better than the print version?

Personally yes because I struggle with finding time to sit down and digest something like this without loosing interest or falling asleep. With audio version I can listen while taking a hike, mowing the lawn or doing chores

Who was your favorite character and why?

The biggest thing that struck me was Jung's way of combining spiritual, scientific and philosophical. I LOVE IT! I think this is the closest to an all inclusive approach as I have ever heard, much better than "modern" cognitive behavioral therapy (aka "talk therapy") or a strict medical/prescription approach. The only way to really change is to dig into the subconscious and bring those shadows to light!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

YES, no I did not cry or laugh but the "AH-HA" were nearly constant for me throughout the book. I stumbled onto Jung because it felt like every other author I have been interested in lately quotes or credits Jung in their own work ... so I finally went to the source! I am a definite Jungian thinker versus Freudian.

Any additional comments?

If you've been listening to Jordan B Peterson,

Between literary analysis, archetypes, Joseph Campbell, and Jordan B Peterson, I can't believe it has taken me this long to actually read/listen o Jung himself. Wealth of insights and well-explained. I took a lot of notes.

Good material

This is not easy listening but well worth the effort. I found myself taking a break to lighter material and then coming back to it.

Robotic narrator

Its like listening to a speech synthesiser that knows how to vocalize each sentence with the exact same intonation as the last one.
The content itself was very insightful, if you put in the effort to listen past the narrator.

Why did I wait so long to listen to this book?

Where does Modern Man in Search of a Soul rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

That's my only regret: not listening sooner. This is one of those books that make a mark in your way of thinking about the state of humanity today.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Modern Man in Search of a Soul?

If you ever doubted you had a soul, this book will make you think again. But if you never doubted you had a soul, this book will make you appreciate it from a different perspective.

Which scene was your favorite?

Jung's comparison and contrast between psychology and religion supported some of the ideas I already had lingering in my own mind. This portion also opened some new questions, that still need to be answered.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There is a portion of this book that moved me so that it still surfaces in conversations, long after finishing the book: that's the portion of the role parents have in the psychological development of adult persons.

As Useful Today as it was in 1933

Where does Modern Man in Search of a Soul rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my favorites. Jung is a true mystic and scientist. His words are as relevant today as they were 80 years ago. This is a must for anyone interested in the state of Modern Man (and I absolutely mean everyone who is interested in TODAY)

What other book might you compare Modern Man in Search of a Soul to and why?

I would suggest reading James Hillman a man of true insight.

Have you listened to any of Christopher Prince’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Any additional comments?

I suggest that this book is worth listening to at least twice as it is so full of wisdom.

Brilliant treatise on the development of the mind

What made the experience of listening to Modern Man in Search of a Soul the most enjoyable?

Im fascinated by classic literature and great philosophic works. I did not know what to expect, having no education on Jungian philosophy and perspective on psychoanalysis, but this is an amazing work. His deconstruction of dream analysis and development of social taboos is really worth listening to, as well as reading. I'm adding this book to my library.

The reader is clear and expresses the material extremely well. I'm going to look for more he's narrated.

What other book might you compare Modern Man in Search of a Soul to and why?

Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance -it's deconstructive point of view and the ease of accessibility of the topics.

Any additional comments?

Audible is a terrific service for hungry readers without much free time.

Eye opening

You know a book is good when it leads you to question your innermost beliefs and ideas.
