At eighty-three, Jung had a dream in which he addressed a multitude of ordinary people who listened with rapt attention and understanding.
This prompted him to agree to the publication of his last book, Man and His Symbols. ~Wounded Healer of the Soul, Page 206.
Man and His Symbols, Jung’s last work, had a typical birth.
The highly successful Freeman interview prompted a publisher’s request for a book of Jung’s “more important and basic ideas,” this
time “for the people in the market place.”
No, said eighty-three year-old Jung.
He had never tried to popularize his work; anyway he was “old and rather tired.”
Then he had a dream, which he told to John Freeman.
Jung dreamed that, instead of sitting in his study and talking to the great doctors and psychiatrists who used to call on
him from all over the world, he was standing in a public place and addressing a multitude of people who were listening
to him with rapt attention and understanding what he said. ~Wounded Healer of the Soul, Page 206.
