With its publication of the Collected English Papers of Wolfgang Giegerich, Spring Journal Books makes available the work of one of archetypal psychology's most brilliant theorists. The product of over three decades of critical reflection, Giegerich's English papers are collected in four volumes: The Neurosis of Psychology (Vol. 1), Technology and the Soul (Vol. 2), Soul-Violence (Vol. 3), and The Soul Always Thinks (Vol. 4) The present volume, Vol.1, The Neurosis of Psychology, takes its title from Giegerich's ground-breaking paper, "On the Neurosis of Psychology, or The Third of the Two."
