From the moment of his conception in his mother womb, Tom Kirsch was surrounded by Jungians. Jungian psychology was, as it were, written into his DNA. His contributions to the field are immeasurable and his legacy will continue to impact future generations. 

 

In A Jungian Legacy: Tom Kirsch, Luis Moris has edited and published the complete text of a filmed interview with Tom and enlarged this manuscript with chapters by some of Tom’s closest friends and colleagues. 

 

“Luis has been motivated to edit and publish the complete text of the filmed interview herein and to enlarge this manuscript with chapters by some of Tom’s closest friends and colleagues… Our lives do live on in the minds and hearts of those who remember us. This book is a work of love, a kind of Kaddish, for which Tom may be deeply grateful.” – Jean Kirsch
