Neurobiology, Symbolic Imagery & Jung — And A Book That Brings Them Together

Yet Goodwyn’s explanation for why we create symbolic imagery makes this an important book not only for analytical psychologists, but also for evolutionary psychologists, traumatologists, and anyone interested in the central role of symbolic imagery for human experience.
