In this collection of diary entries made by British psychiatrist E.A. Bennet during his visits with the Swiss analyst C.G. Jung over a 15-year period, Bennet’s colorfully spontaneous accounts reveal Jung’s down-to-earth personality and his extraordinary mind, at ease in his daily surroundings. Meetings with Jung serves as an ideal introduction to Jungian psychology while providing a rare, intimate perspective into Jung’s life and work for those already familiar with the more scholarly literature.

About the author

Edward Armstrong Bennet was born in Poyntzpass, near Armagh in Northern Ireland, on 21 October 1888. He was educated at Campbell College, Belfast, and studied philosophy and theology at Trinity College, Dublin, where he obtained an honours degree in philosophy. After further studies at Ridley Hall, Cambridge, he was ordained in the Church of England. At the outbreak of the First War he joined the Sixth Northants Regiment as their chaplain, and in 1915 he was awarded the M.C. for conspicuous bravery. The experiences of the war led him to return afterwards to Trinity College where he qualified in medicine in 1925. Later, in 1939, he was awarded the Sc.D. by the same college.

From the start of his medical career Dr. Bennet’s interest lay in psychiatry. Soon after 1925 he moved to London and joined the staff of the Tavistock Clinic; he also took up an appointment at the West End Hospital for Nervous Diseases, and within a few years was lecturing regularly on psychological medicine. His work was characterised by a deep concern for people and their suffering – which is probably the basic motivation of all really good doctors.

Man and His Symbols owes its existence to one of Jung's own dreams. The great psychologist dreamed that his work was understood by a wide public, rather than just by psychiatrists, and therefore he agreed to write and edit this fascinating book. Here, Jung examines the full world of the unconscious, whose language he believed to be the symbols constantly revealed in dreams. Convinced that dreams offer practical advice, sent from the unconscious to the conscious self, Jung felt that self-understanding would lead to a full and productive life. Thus, the reader will gain new insights into himself from this thoughtful volume, which also illustrates symbols throughout history. Completed just before his death by Jung and his associates, it is clearly addressed to the general reader.

Praise for Man and His Symbols

“This book, which was the last piece of work undertaken by Jung before his death in 1961, provides a unique opportunity to assess his contribution to the life and thought of our time, for it was also his firsat attempt to present his life-work in psychology to a non-technical public. . . . What emerges with great clarity from the book is that Jung has done immense service both to psychology as a science and to our general understanding of man in society, by insisting that imaginative life must be taken seriously in its own right, as the most distinctive characteristic of human beings.”—Guardian
