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
Silent Sam protesters gathered near the UNC-Chapel Hill campus Monday to voice support for the graduate student who faces criminal and honor court charges for throwing red ink and blood on the Confederate statue.
In a thrilling dramatic narrative, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Joby Warrick traces how the strain of militant Islam behind ISIS first arose in a remote Jordanian prison and spread with the unwitting aid of two American presidents. Drawing on unique high-level access to CIA and Jordanian sources, Warrick weaves gripping, moment-by-moment operational details with the perspectives of diplomats and spies, generals and heads of state, many of whom foresaw a menace worse than al Qaeda and tried desperately to stop it. Black Flags is a brilliant and definitive history that reveals the long arc of today’s most dangerous extremist threat.
The Rise of Victimhood Culture offers a framework for understanding recent moral conflicts at U.S. universities, which have bled into society at large. These are not the familiar clashes between liberals and conservatives or the religious and the secular: instead, they are clashes between a new moral culture―victimhood culture―and a more traditional culture of dignity. Even as students increasingly demand trigger warnings and “safe spaces,” many young people are quick to police the words and deeds of others, who in turn claim that political correctness has run amok. Interestingly, members of both camps often consider themselves victims of the other. In tracking the rise of victimhood culture, Bradley Campbell and Jason Manning help to decode an often dizzying cultural milieu, from campus riots over conservative speakers and debates around free speech to the election of Donald Trump.

It has been about two months since I picked up my mail. It’s a hassle because I have to take the bus to downtown Albany from my location. Living in a motel it is not like you have an address, so you get creative and find someone you know to be your mailing address. I rarely get anything important, but from time to time I collect it.
I didn’t even know I was going to go today. I just sort of felt in the mood to take the bus and the horrible humidity we were having here last week ended.
This morning when I opened my door I found this guy just chilling outside..
I looked him up as best I could on Google and I am pretty sure he is a Black and Yellow Long Horned Beetle.
So anyway, I walked to the bus stop and watched this woman on the center dividing island of a very busy road just going in and out of sleep while standing there. I am pretty sure she might have been on drugs…
Then the bus came and I went downtown. Before I got my mail I always look at for rent signs. It isn’t even exactly a good area and yet this studio is $910 dollars a month, includes heat and hot water, but not electric. So by the time I would pay that rent, my electric and my Wi-Fi bill I would be paying exactly as much as I am paying here to live in the motel. Only I would be in a crappier location. I took a pic for you…
Then I got my mail and walked back to the bus stop, where I was asked for change twice while waiting for the bus and then went home (Pic of the bus stop while waiting to go home)..
So I am all set with my mail now and won’t have to make that trip for at least another month 🙂
What are the reasons for the decline of our culture? Theodore Dalrymple has spent a lifetime observing it close-up and personal as an inner-city GP and prison psychiatrist.

Both harrowing and at times hilarious, this is the story of the persecution of a British patriot, by his own government and the judicial system. Just an ordinary Luton man, Stephen Lennon ‘became’ Tommy Robinson after his attempts to highlight the dangers of radical Islam led to him being labelled a far right extremist and subjected to years of harassment, arrests and even attempts on his life. And when all else failed, Britain’s security services tried to blackmail into working for them. At times barely believable, this is the true story of how ordinary British men and women are seen as the enemy by their own police and politicians.
