Collected Works: Abstracts


The mission of the National Clearinghouse for Mental Health Information is to provide effective dissemination of mental health information by all appropriate means and to all appropriate people. In carrying out its mission, the Clearinghouse attempts to remain eclectic, and thus presents information from various schools of philosophy in order to inform its audience of the diversity of thought in the mental health field.

The Abstracts of the Collected Works of C. G. Jung, therefore, becomes a suitable companion for the earlier volume. Abstracts of the Standard Edition of Freud.

It should be stated that no abstract can replace a careful reading of the original document. These abstracts serve as guides for the users to enable them to select those chapters or articles to be read in-depth.

These abstracts were initially written under contract; however, it was necessary for the editors to rewrite many abstracts extensively. As the abstracts were written, they were immediately added to one of the Clearinghouse computer files and were searchable by computer since late 1975. However, due to the delayed publication by Princeton University Press of Volume 18 of the Collected Works, the Clearinghouse publication of its abstract volume was postponed. The Clearinghouse neither endorsed nor assisted in any other version of the publication of the abstracts from its computer files.

The Key-Word-Out-of-Context (KWOC) subject index,* based upon the title of each article abstracted, was selected as we understand that a comprehensive index is in preparation by Princeton University Press.

The abstracts are numbered sequentially. In the Index this sequential number is followed by four digits. The first two zeros refer only to this abstract volume; the next two digits refer to the volume number of the Collected Works. Since Volume 9 has two parts, “91” refers to Volume 9, part I, and “92” refers to Volume 9, part II. Abstracts are arranged sequentially by volume.
