Abstract: 'This spirited "conversation' about ultimate concerns in the tradition of Platonic dialogue is one of the most refreshing, challenging and instructive books that I have read in the last ten years or so. It is rooted in the wisdom of an esteemed professor who has sought in the spirit of the German poet Rilke to "live the questions". I highly recommend it as essential reading for any serious student of Jung's psychology.' --Paul D. Huss
