The paper looks at Carl Jung's "Modern Man in Search of a Soul" and is divided into two sections. The first section (summary) provides a short explanation of what is discussed in each of Jung's 11 chapters.
The second section is an opinion-based section which discusses varying views on dream analysis, symbols, psychotherapy's aims, personality differences, the stages of life and the "Archaic Man."


From the Paper:

"The final essay of the collection deals with psychotherapy versus the clergy. Jung discusses the need for modern man to return to the values needed to live: faith, hope, love and insight. While the clergyman has no true knowledge of psychic disease, he has much more to say about these ultimate values and quests of the soul. Many over 35, Jung says, fall ill because they lose their religious outlook (or fear the clergyman too judgmental). Jung encourages patients to pursue both a scientific psychotherapy, as well as the wisdom of an unprejudiced clergyman to give meaning and form to any neurosis, and ultimately lead a healthy life."
