Edited by Murray Stein
The Shadow And The Problem Of Evil: Five Examinations is a captivating and thought-provoking journey into the hidden recesses of the human psyche. Through a Jungian perspective, it offers insights into the nature of evil, the symbols that represent our shadows, and the profound impact of these hidden aspects on society and our ethical choices. It’s a must-read for those seeking a deeper understanding of the human condition and the challenges we face in the modern world.
Murray Stein’s opening chapter, “The Shadow and the Problem of Evil,” explores the fundamental question of the shadow’s connection to evil and Mary Tomlinson introduces the intricate ways the shadow manifests symbolically in our psyche in “Symbols of Shadow and Evil.”
“The Atom Bomb and the Collective Confrontation with Evil,” examines how collective experiences, like the atomic bomb, force society to confront the shadow on a grand scale. “Paranoia: The Madness That Makes History” uncovers how paranoia shapes historical events.
In “The Shadow and the Search for a New Ethic” Henry Abramovitch and Stein ponder the ethical implications of recognizing and integrating the shadow into our lives. Brigitte Egger’s final chapter, “Human Shadow Revealed by the Ecological Crisis,” explores how the ecological crisis serves as a mirror, reflecting our collective shadow and calling for a profound reevaluation of our relationship with the environment.
