Thomas Kirsch and 'The Jungians'


The Jungians: A Comparative and Historical Perspective
by Thomas B. Kirsch

The Jungians traces the history of the profession of analytical psychology from its origins in 1913 until the present. As someone who has been personally involved in many aspects of Jungian history, Thomas Kirsch is well equipped to take the reader through the history of the 'movement', and to document its growth throughout the world, with chapters covering individual geographic areas - the UK, USA, and Australia, to name but a few - in some depth. He also provides new information on the ever-controversial subject of Jung's relationship to Nazism, Jews, and Judaism. A lively and well-researched key work of reference, The Jungians will appeal not only to those working in the field of analysis, but is also essential reading for all those interested in Jungian studies.

Thomas B. Kirsch was President of the International Association of Analytical Psychology form 1989 to 1995, and President of the Jung Institute of San Francisco from 1976 to 1978. He currently works in private practice in California, and is a Lecturer in the Department of Psychiatry at Stanford University Medical School.
