The Symbolic Life gathers some 160 of Jung’s writings that span sixty years and reflect his inquiring mind, numerous interests, and wide circle of professional and personal acquaintance. These writings include three longer works, “The Symbolic Life,” “Symbols and the Interpretation of Dreams,” and “The Tavistock Lectures”; a number of previously overlooked reviews, reports, and articles from the early years of Jung’s career; several finished or virtually finished manuscripts that weren’t published in his lifetime, including a 1901 report on Freud’s On Dreams; and works Jung wrote after retiring from active medical practice. The other pieces collected here include forewords to books by colleagues and pupils, replies to journalists’ questions, encyclopedia articles, and letters on technical subjects.
