About the book:

Winner of the 1994 Award for Best Professional/Scholarly Book in Psychology, Association of American Publishers

The classic path-breaking contextual history of the development of C.G. Jung's thought and Nietzschean religious movement.

The international sensation that was published in Portuguese (Brazil), Swedish, Danish, Japanese, Chinese and Italian translations.

" Richard Noll gives us the 'historical Jung': his goal is neither to idealize nor denigrate Jung but to recover the diverse cultural and intellectual contexts out of which Jung's ideas emerged and to highlight the complex personal, professional, and ideological functions of the early Jung movement. Exceptionally, almost universally, well-read in the field of post-Enlightenment German-languate culture and thought, Noll is ideally suited to this task. . . . it is impossible, henceforth to claim that Jung scholarship is in any way 'behind' Freud Studies."
                                                                                historian Mark S. Micale, Yale University

             "Richard Noll's careful, well-researched and well-reasoned study of the cultural context of Jung's psychology presents the centrality of notions of race and power extrapolated from the reception of Nietzsche's thought at the turn of the century. . . A brilliant must-read for any scholar seriously interested in the history of psychoanalysis/"
                                                                         historian Sander L. Gilman, Cornell University

". . . an important study . . . " Frederick Crews, The New York Review of Books

"This is by far the best book written on Jung to date . . . . Noll's presentation of the volkisch idelogy is excellent and deserves to be read by even those who have little or no interest in Jung's thinking." Martin Kusch, British Journal for the History of Science
