    * Jung’s psyche and its neural substrate
    * the transcendent function
    * history of consciousness.

By John Ryan Haule.

ISBN: 978-0-415-57802-8, Paperback: 248 pages, Available Jan 2011

This second volume explores Jung’s understanding of synchronicity and argues that it offers an important contribution to contemporary science. Whilst the scientific world has often ignored Jung’s theories as being too much like mysticism, Haule argues that what the human psyche knows beyond sensory perception is extremely valuable.

Divided into two parts, areas of discussion include:

    * shamanism and mastery
    * border zones of exact science
    * meditation, parapsychology and psychokinesis

Jung in the 21st Century Volume Two: Synchronicity and Science will, like the first volume, be an invaluable resource for all those in the field of analytical psychology, including students of Jung, psychoanalysts and psychotherapists with an interest in the meeting of Jung and science.
