Review by:
Judith Hubback

The three volumes of letters show forth, for those who never met him in the flesh, the personality of their formidable author. And they may even be in a better position to evaluate Jung in the round than were those who knew him personally and who each made contact with a limited number of facets. Certainly those of us who came after the early generations of analytical psychologists have a great wealth of material at our disposal with which gradually to get to know Jung, his way of life, of responding to life, of commenting on life and, as I think he hoped, making life more liveable. There will be great benefit in reading the Letters in conjunction with the Collected Works, even if such an undertaking sounds very strenuous, because they constitute a running commentary. But they also contain new material.…

And in 1959, writing to Carleton Smith, president of the National Arts Foundation in the United States, he suggested as a topic for a symposium: ‘Who or what is hindering man from living peacefully on this earth?’ (p. 506).
