While reading the collected works, you may go to some of his other works such as The Red Book and Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious. But this depends on the reader – which topic they would like to explore while reading Jung’s writings. Go ahead and start reading today. Reading Jung is a huge and often unpleasant task. His mentor, Sigmund Freud, wrote beautifully. Jung’s prose is rather pedestrian by comparison. Anyway, just work your way through Anthony Storr’s selection of his writings The Essential Jung (Princeton, ). Read the Introduction and then read Part 2 through Part 8 of this collection. Having read the article and references to the book in Jung's memoir, I was eager to see it. Unfortunately, my moment with The Red Book coincided with a period of madness in my own life. Reading Jung is like watching his unconscious unfolding page by page, book by book. From a theoretical point of view might be better to start with some collected works, there are many editions (one by J. Campbell, along with Man and his symbols too, are very good).

The Red Book. is contained within the book’s pages. However, his lecture and his answers to audience questions con-tain additional information and guidance. Shamdasani said, “There are two ways to read. The Red Book: to fit into the mold of what we know about Jung (and Freud) or to allow this book to reconfigure what we. think. we know File Size: KB. If you want to start with Jung himself, Collected Works Volume 7, Two Essays on Analytical Psychology is the easiest and recommended place to start. You can jump to Volume 9 Book 1 after that, though some might recommend reading Volume 5, Symbols of Transformation first. To really understand Jung though, it's best to get an introduction. The long-awaited publication of C.G. Jung's Red Book in October, was a signal event in the history of analytical psychology. Hailed as the most important work in Jung's entire corpus, it is as enigmatic as it is profound. Reading The Red Book by Sanford L. Drob provides a clear and comprehensive guide to The Red Book's narrative and /5(19).   Jung's style of writing in the Red Book resembles that of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in Thus Spake Zarathustra, a book he had read and obviously been profoundly influenced is basically.

So, I bet you think I'm going to tell you which of his translated books is best to buy, right? Wrong. Jung is not easily digested and not a pleasure to read. Not to mention, over his career he had a habit of contradicting himself. I have a "starter" book idea for you.
