For many years, the only biographies of Jung were too partisan or otherwise incomplete. Deirdre Bair has filled the gap, providing this extensive look at Jung’s life — his experiences, controversies, theories, relationships, and much more.

Where Memories, Dreams, Reflections offers, in a sense, a poetic, mythic portrait of Jung’s life, Bair’s Jung: A Biography is serves as a factual biography, rigorously researched and offered in clear, linear prose. Those interested in the life of Jung, including the cultural and historical contexts surrounding him, will certainly be satisfied with Bair’s excellent account.
