In exploring the manifestations of human spiritual experience both in the imaginative activities of the individual and in the formation of mythologies and of religious symbolism in various cultures, C. G. Jung laid the groundwork for a psychology of the spirit. The excerpts here illuminate the concept of the unconscious, the central pillar of his work, and display ample evidence of the spontaneous spiritual and religious activities of the human mind. This compact volume will serve as an ideal introduction to Jung's basic concepts.

I love these Modern Library collections. Sampling excerpts from an author both gives you a broader view of his work and points you to which works you might be interested in fully reading when you have the opportunity. Jung's thought is broad in range, and this anthology covers the main areas well. It can be difficult to convey the essential unity of much of Jung's thought, especially given the wandering writing style he possessed, but bringing excerpts together helps to do this.
