about merging articles on individual works into this one[edit]

it depends if this is a full article on a particular work, I guess it would include the stage of his life at the time of writing, the social and medical context (when he wrote it, the development of his thought at the time and the work's place in that) and summary, his own influences, critique maybe even? and influence, then yep, let's make it a full article. But if it's gonna be a brief record, then maybe it's better in the Collected works of CGJ. And, if the Collected Works is a compilation, then a significant work would merit a separate article.

I think that the article on psychological types should be left as a separate item from the Collected Works of Jung, because many people is interested in his particular taxonomy of personality types. I also think that this article should be expanded, giving examples on how to use this taxonomy.


another opinion I think its best that we leave the individual book pages open, in time each one can be expanded to provide valuable information, perhaps quotes sections, chapter by chapter summaries, concordances and so on.


I'm for leaving the existing articles as is. Certainly Psychological Types, as mentioned above, is a major work that merits a fully developed article. Bertport 10:16, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


I like the list as is so far, but can't see the value of empty pages being orphaned. Wikipedia is not an orphanage. Suggest titles in the list be left as is until someone really has an article (or good sized stub) to contribute. I revisited this page, but found it frustrating to click on titles "linked" and simply be redirected to the list, or sent to an article that is just a list of headings. In wiki, clicking on a blue link means you expect to get information, not a blank.Julia Rossi 23:20, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Merging and combining[edit]

The articles on typology are pretty thoroughly confused, and need to be straightened out. Personality type leads one place, Psychological type and Psychological Types lead to another, and Psychological types leads back to Personality type. God knows what other confusions exist. Somebody with a lot of Wikipedia skills and a bit of personality type knowledge needs to work on this. How can that be brought about? Lou Sander 19:25, 14 November 2007 (UTC)


Each work needs and deserves a separate page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:35, 22 April 2013 (UTC)


I've added some missing dates to the list of volumes, and links to the Princeton University Press and Routledge pages that show the volumes in the series, with links to the catalog entries for each one. There may be some inconsistencies in the dates, due to different publication dates for hardback and paperback versions. My changes show the hardback dates.

An interested Jung scholar could use the links above to create articles on the works that do not already have them. Lou Sander (talk) 13:56, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Articles on individual books[edit]

Most of the books mentioned in this article do not have articles of their own. If one searches for them by title, one is redirected to this page. I'm replacing the redirect pages with articles containing brief discussions of the books, hopefully with "hooks" to let others expand them. The articles briefly discuss the books' contents, and contain links to detailed online abstracts of every chapter, as well as to the book's entries in the catalogs of Princeton University Press and Routledge. In my experience, it isn't easy to find this information on one's own. For books that already have articles, I'm trying to add the material described above, without doing violence to the existing material. If anyone has comments on this project, please pass them along.

I reverted an edit removing this from the list of additional works in the Bollingen series. It is definitely a volume of its own, and is definitely a separate volume in the series. It is a separately published extract from Volume 8. (I'm looking at it right now.) Lou Sander (talk) 14:37, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

Can someone figure out a way to correct the volume numbers after Vol 9? N.b. volume 9 part two is listed as volume 10 and the rest of the volume numbers are shifted one number up...

It looks like this has been fixed. Lou Sander (talk) 20:04, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
