Abstract: Twelve essays. 'It may be that the belief in analytical psychology as more a religion than a science arises in those who become overawed by the numinous character of the archetypal images; they then overestimate dream psychology and active imagination. This can lead and has led to a neglect of theory in the spheres of personal, ego, and child psychology, and to overlooking the importance of the transference in analytical practice. My studies aim at compensating this trend.'
