Individuation and the Absolute: Hegel, Jung, and the Path Toward Wholeness
Sean Kelly offers an original and compelling vision of human selfhood as guided by the quest for meaning and wholeness, a quest which extends beyond the individual to encompass the sweep of world history itself. It is a creative synthesis of the core ideas of two of the modern west's greatest minds, Jung and Hegel. Informed throughout by his notion of "complex holism," Kelly explores the dialectical relations between ego and unconscious, self and other, the individual and the absolute. Review: A ground-breaking work! Sea Kelly demonstrates convincingly that Hegel is Jung's philosopher and that Jung is Hegel's psychologist. Kelly's comparative and synthetic efforts unveil the common origin of philosophy, psychology, and religious experience in the deeper psyche.
