Emergence of the Self

Noted analyst and author Murray Stein explains what the psychological process of transformation, more commonly known as a midlife crisis, actually is, and what it means for an individual to experience it.  Consciously working through this life stage can lead people to become who they have always potentially been.  Indeed, Stein suggests, transformation is the essential human task.

Stein first details how this process of transformation emerges and develops in an individual and clearly walks the reader through the hows and whys of the transformation process.  Stein then explains how transformative images stimulate the transformation process by suggesting new ways of thinking and living.  Finally, he examines the process in the lives of three important people - Jung, Picasso and Rembrandt - whose experiences of transformation led to even greater creativity and freedom.

For those people who would like to learn what a meaningful second half of life could be like, Transformation: Emergence of the Self is an inspiring place to start.

This book is part of the Carolyn and Ernest Fay Series in Analytical Psychology.
