Jungian analyst Dr. Bud Harris writes poignantly about the dramatic and mysterious nature of evil and its existence in the world and within ourselves. This book is a journey deep into the psychological dimensions of evil and how the shadow sides of our personalities are intertwined with it to shape our personal lives and culture.
Confronting Evil offers a guide for “good people” to recognize evil, explore it in the world and within themselves, and transform it into something meaningful and hopeful. Designed as a seeker’s guide and workbook, prompts for reflection are posed following each section. Blank pages allow you to make notes, reflect, or list personal assignments and challenges.
Quotes from religious texts, philosophers, and thinkers—including psychoanalyst Carl Jung—are plentiful. And Harris uses powerful examples from his own practice as a Jungian analyst. The subject of evil and how to approach it is examined from multiple points of view.
