Taking as its starting point the approaches to education found in the writing of Carl Jung, Jung and Educational Theory explores the psychologist's impact on education today. Through the contributions of academics and practitioners of educational philosophy, the book demonstrates the educational value of Jung's psychology as a complement to its more widely understood therapeutic value.

Emphasizing Jung's unifying approach to human sciences the book provides the first systematic investigation of his legacy in analytical psychology for educational philosophy and theory. Jung's focus on the process of individuation grounded in universal human experiences will have long-lasting implications in both the theoretical field and pedagogical practice.
