The Myth of Meaning
186 pages, 2nd edition, ISBN 3-85630-500-9 / 978-3-85630-500-0
What gives a life its meaning? In this significant volume, one of C.G. Jung’s closest associates explores the world of subjective experience in dreams, fantasies and inner images in an illuminating examination of the phenomenon of meaning.
In so doing, she provides further insights into the signiﬁcance of Jung’s work. Aniela Jaffé maintains that any search for meaning ultimately leads into this inner “mythical” realm and must be understood as a limited subjective attempt to answer the unanswerable. Any answer must be one’s own, and its formulation one’s own myth.
