What We Are Reading Today: The Quotable Jung by Judith Harris

  • The Quotable Jung is the single most comprehensive collection of Jung quotations ever assembled

C. G. Jung (1875–1961) was a preeminent thinker of the modern era. In seeking to establish an interdisciplinary science of analytical psychology, he studied psychiatry, religion, mysticism, literature, physics, biology, education, and criminology. He introduced the concepts of extraversion and introversion, and terms such as complex, archetype, individuation, and the collective unconscious. He stressed the primacy of finding meaning in our lives.

The Quotable Jung is the single most comprehensive collection of Jung quotations ever assembled. It is the essential introduction for anyone new to Jung. It will also inspire those familiar with Jung to view him in an entirely new way. The Quotable Jung presents hundreds of the most representative selections from the vast array of Jung’s books, essays, correspondence, lectures, seminars, and interviews, as well as the celebrated Red Book, in which Jung describes his own fearsome confrontation with the unconscious. 

The Quotable Jung also features a preface by Judith Harris.

Organized thematically, this collection covers such topics as the psyche, the symbolic life, dreams, the analytic process, good and evil, creativity, alchemical transformation, death and rebirth, the problem of the opposites, and more. The quotations are arranged so that the reader can follow the thread of Jung’s thought on these topics while gaining an invaluable perspective on his writings as a whole. Succinct and accessible, and a detailed chronology of Jung’s life and work.

Jessica Kahawaty scores big with new Inter Milan campaign

DUBAI: Lebanese-Australian model and influencer Jessica Kahawaty unveiled her latest ad campaign this week — a gritty new video for Italian football team Inter Milan.

The clip, which Kahawaty and Inter shared on their Instagram pages, features various dedicated professionals, from a dancer to a kitesurfer, refining their craft through sheer hard work.

“Whatever they say/ don’t bother trying. Triers can quit/ while I’m here, flying,” a male voice says in the video, before adding, “I’ve failed without guard/ I’ve fallen hard. I’ve been so wrong/ And that made me strong.”

The camera then pans to Kahawaty, wearing the club’s signature black-and-blue striped kit, who seems to be standing in a cavernous tunnel, as she says, “But this is not for everyone.”

 

 

The model took to Instagram to share the clip, captioning the post: “Proud to reveal my international campaign for @inter football team” in English, Italian and Arabic.

She stars alongside Chinese contemporary dancer Duan Jingting, the former Shanghai Ballet dancer who shot to fame on “So You Think You Can Dance China” and Airton Cozzolino, a champion kitesurfer.

For her part, Kahawaty studied business, finance and law in Sydney and then made a move into modelling and event hosting. The social media influencer, with 846,000 followers on Instagram, is also keen supporter of a number of humanitarian causes, including UNICEF and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Last year, fashion house Louis Vuitton selected Kahawaty to work with UNICEF at the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan to help children affected by the Syrian crisis, which has seen millions of people displaced.

The multi-talented celebrity also gave a talk at the TEDxSciencesPo event in Paris in April 2018.

The conference, according to a press release, brought together influencers “who work toward breaking the wall between the East and the West” and aims to “provide an essential bridge, to fuse the gap between rising trends of neo-conservatism predominant in the South of France and the cultural diversity that characterizes the Arab world.”
