Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career.

9. The Red Book (Philemon)
Author: by C. G. Jung
The most influential unpublished work in the history of psychology. When Carl Jung embarked on an extended self-exploration he called his confrontation with the unconscious, the heart of it was The Red Book, a large, illuminated volume he created between 1914 and 1930.
Here he developed his principle theoriesof the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuationthat transformed psychotherapy from a practice concerned with treatment of the sick into a means for higher development of the personality. While Jung considered The Red Book to be his most important work, only a handful of people have ever seen it.
Now, in a complete facsimile and translation, it is available to scholars and the general public. It is an astonishing example of calligraphy and art on a par with The Book of Kells and the illuminated manuscripts of William Blake.
This publication of The Red Book is a watershed that will cast new light on the making of modern psychology. 212 color illustrations.
10. Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging
Author: by Sebastian Junger
We have a strong instinct to belong to small groups defined by clear purpose and understanding-“tribes.” This tribal connection has been largely lost in modern society, but regaining it may be the key to our psychological survival. Decades before the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin lamented that English settlers were constantly fleeing over to the Indians-but Indians almost never did the same.
Tribal society has been exerting an almost gravitational pull on Westerners for hundreds of years, and the reason lies deep in our evolutionary past as a communal species. The most recent example of that attraction is combat veterans who come home to find themselves missing the incredibly intimate bonds of platoon life.
The loss of closeness that comes at the end of deployment may explain the high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by military veterans today. Combining history, psychology, and anthropology, Tribe explores what we can learn from tribal societies about loyalty, belonging, and the eternal human quest for meaning.
