Abstract or Description

The work of Jung is not useful only for therapy, but also as a way of understanding the world, transcending many areas, including film. This is the first book to apply Jungian analysis specifically to film criticism.

Jung & Film brings together some of the best new writing from both sides of the Atlantic. Christopher Hauke, Ian Alister, and an excellent array of contributors look at how Jungian ideas can help us understand films and the genres to which they belong, illustrating this with examinations of seminal films including Pulp Fiction, Blade Runner, and 2001 - A Space Odyssey. Both scholarly thinking and therapeutic insight come together here with the focus on movies and their place in our psychological development.

Taking a fresh look at an ever-changing medium, Jung & Film is essential reading for academics and students of Analytical Psychology, as well as Film, Media and Cultural Studies.
