The Two Million-Year-Old. Drawing on his experience as an analyst, Stevens evokes dreams and psychiatry to reveal a compelling and challenging view of the two million-yearold Self as embodying no less than the will of nature, providing ancient wisdom that we neglect at our collective peril. By granting close attention to nature's mind, Stevens argues, we not only further personal wholeness but help redress the gross imbalances of our culture, which are threatening the destruction of the earth.

two million-year-old man that is in us all’, Jung lay himself at the mercy of any beady logician wishing to accuse him of falling into a homuncular fallacy - namely, that he believed he had a little old man in there sitting at the controls.

By personifying this phylogenetic component of the psyche as an archaic being, or ‘the two million-year-old man that is in us all’, Jung lay himself at the mercy of any beady logician wishing to accuse him of falling into a homuncular fallacy - namely, that he believed he had a little old man in there sitting at the controls. Social scientists saw Jung's theory of mind as politically dangerous, a first cousin of Social Darwinism. The idea of an ‘evolved intelligence of humankind’ had already been fused with the notion of genetic superiority and used to justify such gross injustices as eugenics, world conquest, fascism and genocide.

Any student of Jungian thinking will appreciate this book. Its not long but has deep insight by a great analyst who has both a theoretical and applied understanding of archetypal thinking. Good insights for the archetypal basis of the psychological profession. Also check out Murray Stein's 'Jung's Map Of the Soul.' A more comprehensive explanation of Jung to the less initiated. This book is not too advanced for a beginner. Is not overly academic.

If you think that Jung was correct in his understanding of the human soul, then you will love this book. Being familiar with Jung's idea of the collective unconscious, I very much appreciated how the author adroitly pulled together information from other disciplines to shore up Jung's claim. Readers without a background in (Jungian) psychology may find the book less accessible.

With the evolution of human consciousness, nature has finally become conscious of itself. It has taken eons of time, this lumbering progress through the minds of reptiles, mammals, and primates, and it is still working out its purpose in the archetypes of the collective unconscious encoded in the most ancient parts of the human brain. The recent evolutionary history of our species, which Jung personified as "the two million-year-old human being in us all," is still active in our dreams, myths, psychiatric symptoms, traditional healing practices, and typical patterns of behavior. Through a wide-ranging review of developments in anthropology, ethology, sociobiology, neuroscience, psycholinguistics, and Jungian psychology, Anthony Stevens explores the nature of the two million-year-old self and examines ways in which the contemporary world both fulfills and frustrates its basic needs and intentions. Drawing on his experience as an analyst, Stevens evokes dreams and psychiatry to reveal a compelling and challenging view of the two million-year-old Self as embodying no less than the will of nature. By granting close attention to nature's mind, Stevens argues, we not only further personal wholeness but also help redress the gross imbalances of our culture, which are threatening the destruction of the earth. For the ecologically concerned, this book offers a dramatic new perspective on our future relations with our planet.

Wonderful condition!

Again another Tour de Force from Stevens. The author describes the duality of the human perception and its role in illness and welness. The healer archetype is so beautifully analyzed and defined. Highly recommended.
It's so easy
It is 30 years since I went to Morocco for a winter's surfing accompanied by a number of volumes of Jung's Collective works. Jung is heavy going for the neophyte. His concern that his ideas not be dismissed as metaphysical - the regular experience of his ideas meeting with strong antipathy or misunderstanding, or misinterpretation - led him to adopt a style of writing which he would characterise as rigorously scientific. This reader's experience was one of needing heavy-duty lexicographical backup!

So commentary is welcome. If Levi-Strauss could utterly misrepresent (if not slander) Jung's concept of the collective unconscious (having discovered evidence of it himself in global anthropological motifs some 15 years after Jung had published his discoveries) how much more prone to uncertainty is the brave amateur tackling the Collected Works outside the pale of academe and without reference to informed companions.

Amongst other useful reflections in this book is the evidence for a seat of the Collective Unconscious within the primitive structure of the human brain. And there is a pleasure in joining another in the affection and high regard in which one is led to hold the man himself after many years of "knowing" him. And some satisfaction, too, in seeing the emergence of 'scientific' confirmation of some of his more outre revelations.

Jung is rewarding to any reader willing to come to terms with his work. His spirit is there but wandering deeply hidden within a forest of difficult terminology, strange new concepts and a massive body of empirical data.

This book is a great teaser. But having read it, do go on to Jung in the original! (The 2 volumes of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary are a recommended companion.)
