In these five lectures, Steiner lays the foundations for a truly spiritual psychology. The first two lectures constitute a critical examination of the principles of Freud and Jung. The last three lectures begin with a description of the threefold structure of human consciousness and go on to outline a psychology that takes into account both the soul's hidden powers and the complex connections between psychological and organic, bodily processes. Robert Sardello, co-director of the Dallas Institute for Humanities and Culture has contributed an important introduction from the perspective of a practicing psychotherapist.

What is the difference between soul and spiritual consciousness? Or the process of individuation and the development of individuality? What are Jung's and Steiner's views on the Grail, dreams, life after death, alchemy, and sexuality? The different approaches of C.G. Jung, the explorer of soul, and Rudolf Steiner, the explorer of spirit, have never been fully brought together. How, putting these together, can a more holistic understanding of the human being be reached? Gerhard Wehr, who is both an Anthroposophist and a biographer of Jung, answers these questions and explores what a psychology that comprehends both soul and spirit would begin to look like. With a profound and original introduction by Robert Sardello and an extensive appendix with essays on depth psychology and Anthroposophy by Hans Erhard Lauer, this book bears witness to the birth of a new psychology. As Sardello writes: "Jung and Steiner does not merely offer a comparison of two creative individuals each of whom has brought something decidedly new to the world... This book goes much further, and its reach has to do with the method employed, which Wehr calls 'synoptic.' Rather than setting the externals of two systems side by side and looking at each for similarities and differences, Wehr sets the core meaning of each beside the other. Out of the tension something new comes into being."

Charet uncovers some of the reasons why Jung’s psychology finds itself living between science and religion. He demonstrates that Jung’s early life was influenced by the experiences, beliefs, and ideas that characterized Spiritualism and that arose out of the entangled relationship that existed between science and religion in the late nineteenth century. Spiritualism, following it inception in 1848, became a movement that claimed to be a scientific religion and whose controlling belief was that the human personality survived death and could be reached through a medium in trance. The author shows that Jung’s early experiences and preoccupation with Spiritualism influenced his later ideas of the autonomy, personification, and quasi-metaphysical nature of the archetype, the central concept and one of the foundations upon which he built his psychology.
