Review by:
Steven M. Joseph

This book is one of a series of studies, published by Inner City Books, which present lectures given by the late Edward F. Edinger on a variety of topics - ranging from key works of Jung through Melville's Moby-Dick, Goethe's Faust, and William Blake's Illustrations of the Book of Job. The current book is a companion piece to Edinger's The Bible and the Psyche: Individuation Symbolism in the Old Testament (Edinger 1986). In his writing Edinger takes on the large task of presenting a comprehensive view of the significance of Jung's opus for the contemporary world, which he apparently intends to be not only comprehensive but also definitive. In Ego and Self, as in The Bible and the Psyche, Edinger wishes to subject the Bible to the

whole new world-view growing out of depth psychology [that] studies the psyche as an experienceable, objective phenomenon. It takes old data and approaches them in a new way.
