By C. G. Jung, John Beebe

The idea that of masculinity was once an important not just to Jung's innovative theories of the human psyche, but in addition to his personal own improvement. If, as Jung believed, "modern guy is already so darkened that not anything past the sunshine of his personal mind illuminates his world," then it's necessary to exhibit each guy the bounds of his realizing and the way to beat them. In Aspects of the Masculine Jung does this via revealing his most important insights in regards to the nature and motivations of masculinity, either wide awake and subconscious, and explaining how this impacts the advance of the character. providing a different standpoint at the masculine, established upon either his own and scientific stories, Jung asks questions that stay as insistent as ever. He deals solutions that--whether they shock, surprise or edify--challenge us to re-evaluate our modern realizing of masculinity.

The interpretation of the orificium urethrae as an eye, with the source of light apparently above it, points to the etymology of the word phallus (Φαλος, shining, bright). At all events, the phallus of this dream seems to be a subterranean God “not to be named,” and such it remained throughout my youth, reappearing when anyone spoke too loudly about Lord Jesus. 1 How the atmosphere of the nineteenth-century Swiss parsonage emerges from Jung’s recounting of this dream and his much later associations to it!

The floor was laid with flagstones, and in the center a red carpet ran from the entrance to a low platform. On this platform stood a wonderfully rich golden throne.
