Murray Stein’s New Release –
Four Pillars of Jungian Psychoanalysis
The Four Pillars of Jungian Psychoanalysis…
by Murray Stein is a work that describes the methods that in combination sets this form of psychotherapy apart from all the others.
The first chapter describes how the theory of individuation serves as an assessment tool for the analyst and guides the process toward the client’s further psychological development.
The second chapter, on the analytic relationship, discusses the depth psychological understanding of the healing effect of the therapeutic encounter.
Working with dreams and active imagination comprise the other two chapters. In both of these chapters, there is detailed discussions of how these methods are used in Jungian psychoanalysis and to what purpose. It is the combination of “the four pillars” that makes Jungian psychoanalysis unique.

And Other Essays in Jungian Psychology
In these late essays, Murray Stein circles around familiar Jungian themes such as synchronicity, individuation, archetypal image and symbol with a view to bringing these ideas into today’s largely globalized cultural space. These are reflections for our time, drawing importantly on the works of C.G. Jung, Erich Neumann, Wolfgang Pauli and a wide range of contemporary Jungian psychoanalytic writers. The general thesis is that all of humanity is connected—to one another, to nature and to the cosmos—and no human being should be left out of the picture of postmodern consciousness.
The Bible as Dream: A Jungian Interpretation
Recognized as a winner in the Applied Category of the American Board & Academy of Psychoanalysis’ 2019 Book Awards. In The Bible as Dream, Murray Stein shares important themes and images in the biblical narrative that from a psychological perspective, stand out as essential features of the meaning of the Bible for the modern reader.
Map of the Soul – Persona: Our Many Faces
There is a lot of interest in today’s culture about the idea of Persona and the psychological mapping of one’s inner world. In fact, the interest is so strong that the superstar Korean Pop band, BTS, has taken Dr. Murray Stein’s concepts and woven them into the title and lyrics of their album, Map of the Soul: Persona.
What is our persona and how does it affect our life’s journey? What masks do we wear as we engage those around us? Our persona is ultimately how we relate to the world. Combined with our ego, shadow, anima and other intra-psychic elements it creates an internal map of the soul.
Map of the Soul – Shadow: Our Hidden Self
In this second book in the series, Dr. Murray Stein explores the dark recesses of our psyche, as well as the shadow images in BTS’ songs in their album Map of the Soul: 7. The Korean Pop band, BTS, has been taking the world by storm with a series of albums inspired from Dr. Stein’s concepts titled Map of the Soul. Dr. Stein has joined them in expressing these same Jungian themes in a companion book series.
Map of the Soul – Ego: I Am
In this book, Dr. Murray Stein explores the beginnings of consciousness and the concept of the “I,” as well as the evocative lyrics from the Korean Pop band BTS’s album, Map of the Soul: 7. BTS’s album series titled Map of the Soul was largely inspired by Dr. Stein’s presentation of C.G. Jung’s groundbreaking psychological insights.
Men Under Construction: Challenges and Prospects
Today more than ever men are challenged to take steps toward greater consciousness and psychological development. In these lectures Murray Stein describes five “eras” or stages in a lifelong process of psychological and spiritual growth, as well as speaking about friendship between men and the archetypal gestures of fathering. The lectures are intended to help men of all ages to orient themselves in their lives as they search for meaning and seek personal development.
