Samenvatting

In Narratives of Individuation, Raya A. Jones and Leslie Gardner present 12 cutting-edge essays that bridge Jungian and narrative approaches to self-understanding, and offer critical appraisal of both approaches. Exploring the Jungian concept of individuation and the related interest in dreams, as well as the premise of the narrative self and the related interest in life-stories, this innovative volume interprets the topic in unique and unprecedented ways. An outstanding selection of contributors cover several overarching themes to provide a comprehensive understanding of these two powerful narratives. The contributors explore historical and conceptual issues concerning the narrative self, as well as applying it, including to Jung's autobiography. Chapters also examine how Jung developed his theory of individuation, and engage with contemporary thinking in anthropology, psychology (including the dialogical self) and Jungian psychotherapy, towards refiguring how people arrive at self-understanding. Written by leaders in the field, Narratives of Individuation is a valuable interdisciplinary resource that illuminates a multitude of perspectives on individuation and self-realisation. Owing to its original ideas and breadth of scope, Narratives of Individuation will appeal to academics and students of Jungian and post-Jungian studies, anthropology, psychology, literary studies and anyone examining concepts of selfhood and the significance of narrativity. It will also be of great interest to Jungian analysts and psychotherapists, and analytical psychologists.

Recensie(s)

By bringing together Jungian psychology and postmodern narratology on the fertile crossover of individuation, editors Raya A. Jones and Leslie Gardner enrich both fields by showing how they challenge, corroborate, expand and deepen each other. Narratives of Individuation is an essential book for Jungians building stories in/as clinical treatment and scholars in the Social Sciences and the Humanities exploring narrative as constituent of being. Stories define, structure, and frustrate who we are and where we are going. Jones and Gardner have skilfully woven a multifaceted texture of themes of the examined life, Jung in the postmodern and refiguring individuation. This marvellous book enables us to examine who is speaking in the secret corners of the becoming soul. - Susan Rowland, PhD., is Core Faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute, California, USA.
