The Erring Carl Jung
The Aryan Christ: The Secret Life of Carl Jung
by Richard Noll
New York: Random House, 1997
(334 pages; $25.95, cloth)
reviewed by Richard Kew
Usually I review a book within days of finishing it, but it took nearly a month since reading The Aryan Christ for me to begin getting it into some kind of perspective. Richard Noll, its author, is a psychologist, teaches the history of science at Harvard, and this is his second book about Carl Gustav Jung. If a recent interview with Noll on Mars Hill audio tapes is anything to go by, his delving into the intimacies of Jung’s life has not gone down well with some devout Jungians. It was that interview that piqued my curiosity.
