Critical Edition of the Works of Jung to be Published

Exciting announcement from Princeton University Press:

Princeton University Press is thrilled to share news of a major new initiative: the publication of The Critical Edition of the Works of C. G. Jung. As the longtime publisher of the Collected Works of C. G. Jung in North America, PUP is honored to be global publisher of the Critical Edition, having recently secured world language rights and the support from the Foundation for the Works of C. G. Jung in Zürich, who will be facilitating and guiding access to documents and letters and providing its expertise to this major undertaking based on family archives.

Led by general editor Sonu Shamdasani, an esteemed historian of psychiatry and psychology and a preeminent expert on Jung, this ambitious, multi-year undertaking will result in 26 volumes of material, all newly translated by Caitlin Stephens, that will bring the Swiss psychologist’s formidable work to new life for a new generation of readers. Astrid Freuler, an independent professional translator, will provide proofreading for the translations. Volumes will feature a scholarly apparatus, including historical introductions, contextual annotations that will draw heavily on Jung’s unpublished correspondences, and variorum presentations of works that went through multiple editions, noting revisions. Alongside the general editor, Jung historians Gaia Domenici, Martin Liebscher, and Christopher Wagner will serve as volume editors.

In addition to the inclusion of material available in the Collected Works of C. G. Jung—first published between 1957 and 1979 and essential in introducing Jung to English-language readers—the Critical Edition will draw on significant historical work in Jung history from recent decades and on advances in scholarship in the fields that Jung traversed. By following the recent publication of Jung’s Red Book and Black Books one can grasp the evolution of his thought and the links between his biography and works. These volumes will also incorporate extensive manuscripts and notes discovered only when Jung’s archives were first catalogued in 1993. In whole, the Critical Edition will brilliantly elucidate the development of Jung’s thinking and writing over a lifetime.…/critical-edition-cg-jung…
