 About the Book 

Jung has never pursued the psychology of religion apart from general psychology. The unique importance of his work lies rather in his discovery and treatment of religious, or potentially religious, factors in his investigation into the unconsciousMoreJung has never pursued the psychology of religion apart from general psychology. The unique importance of his work lies rather in his discovery and treatment of religious, or potentially religious, factors in his investigation into the unconscious as a whole and in his general therapeutic practice. In Answer to Job: Researches into the Relation Between Psychology & Religion, first published in Zurich in 1952, Jung employs the familiar language of theological discourse. Such terms as God, wisdom, and evil are the touchstones of his argument. And yet, Answer to Job, perhaps Jungs most controversial work, is not an essay in theology as much as it is an examination of the symbolic role that theological concepts play in a persons psychic life.
