Animus : The Spirit of Inner Truth in Women
Barbara Hannah tackled the theme of the animus in women's psyche with a comprehensiveness unsurpassed in Jungian literature. Her insight and vigor stem directly from personally grappling with her own animus while integrating the experience and reflections of psychotherapists working directly with C.G. Jung. Her psychological analysis of the animus is presented here in two volumes in essays gleaned from her handwritten notes, typed manuscripts, previously published articles (as well as her notes for those articles) and from her own drafts of her lectures, given at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich and to various audiences in Switzerland and England. The main objective of these two volumes is to present the reader with an all-inclusive synthesis of the many and complex essays and lectures Barbara Hannah presented on the animus while rendering the wonderful spirit and voice of Barbara Hannah herself.
