Liliane Frey-Rohn, who in 1976 marks her fortieth anniversary as a Jungian analyst in Zürich, was a colleague of C. G. Jung and a collaborator with him on many of his investigations. Over the years she has followed the development of Jung's theoretical formulations, interpreting them to her students and analysands. A member of the Curatorium of the C. G. Jung Institute in Zürich since its inception in 1947, she has stood firm for the necessity of a precise and accurate presentation of Jung's unique contributions to depth psychology.

Although Dr Frey is clearly an exponent of the classical ‘analytical psychology’ which has given the Zürich Institute its distinctive and world renowned character, she has not been entirely a ‘disciple of the master’. Unlike so many of her colleagues who have immersed themselves primarily in the work of Jung and his followers, Frey has studied intensively and extensively the work of Freud in all phases of its development and alterations. Over a period of many years she has devoted herself to an exegesis of the works of both Jung and Freud, and to a critical comparison between the two major theories dealing with the psychology of the unconscious.

The major portion of the book takes up in succession those basic concepts of depth psychology which were crucial to both Freud and Jung. She traces the development of these concepts from Freud's early formulations to Jung's interpretations, revisions, extensions and divergences from the ideas as originally presented.
