No longer a redirect[edit]

I've turned this redirect page into a brief discussion of the book, hopefully with "hooks" to let others expand it. It shows how the book fits into the series, briefly discusses its contents, and contains links to detailed online abstracts of every chapter, and to the book's entries in the catalogs of Princeton University Press and Routledge. In my experience, it isn't easy to find this material on one's own. I'm planning to do this with other books in the series, and would appreciate comments about that project. With luck, I might be able to do one book per day. Lou Sander (talk) 16:02, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Directed thinking[edit]

The book contains material on directed thinking vs. associative thinking (dreaming), and extensive analysis of the fantasies of a Miss Frank Miller, including the symbols of the hero, mother, and sacrifice.

@Lou Sander: Is directed thinking the older term for critical thinking? If so, I would like to link to it. Viriditas (talk) 02:27, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

@Viriditas: I don't have much information about that. Basically I'm just passing along what the sources say, without a deep understanding of their specialized terminology. Maybe you could dig into the sources, or maybe into the book itself, and answer your question. I Googled 'directed thinking Jung', and found a lot of material. At first glance, it seems there is a connection between the two terms. Lou Sander (talk) 18:58, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
