In 1935 Jung gave a now famous course of five lectures at the Tavistock Clinic in London. In them he set out in lucid and compelling fashion his theory of the mind and the methods he had used to arrive at his conclusions: dream analysis, word assocation and ‘active imagination.’ Immediately accessible to the general reader, the Tavistock lectures are a superb introduction to anyone coming to Jung’s psychology for the first time. A fascinating feature of the book is the inclsion of the questions posed to Jung at the end of each lecture. The questions, including those from leading psychoanalysts such as Wilfrid Bion, and the discussions that follow offer a superb example of a great thinker at the peak of their powers.
