    Reading Jung

    Where's the best place to start with reading Jung? If one wanted to get an overview of Jung's work, which books/essays would you recommend?

    Man and his Symbols
    Essential Jung
    Modern Man in Search of a Soul

    I found a lot Jung's work kind of hard to accept except the occasional poetic truth, but YMMV.

    Man and His Symbols is written for a general audience and is interesting reading.

    Yep, it's almost a 'primer' of Jung. Very good.

    I found Jung's work extremely accessible after getting some sort of grip on Joseph Campbell's (religious) and Immanuel Kant's (philosophical) work.

    Really, if you just accept that you possess animalistic instincts and trusting those instincts is healthy then you've pretty much gotten down to the meat of Jung's ideas.

    But don't take my word for it explore Jung's work for yourself. It's actually fun reading if reading is fun for you.
    What's the difference? It's just soda, bro.

    You're just a clone. What would you know?

    What is it if a clone has sex with another clone from the same source? Incest? Masturbation? Important questions.
