In The Undiscovered Self Jung explains the essence of his teaching for an audience unfamiliar with his ideas. He highlights the importance of individual responsibility and freedom in the context of today's mass society and argues that individuals must organise themselves as effectively as the organized mass if they are to resist joining it.
To help them achieve this he sets out his influential programme for achieving self-understanding and self-realisation. The Undiscovered Self is a book that will awaken many individuals to the new life of the self that Jung visualised. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) founded the analytical school of psychology and developed a radical new theory of the unconscious.
