Check out this quote...
"Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology. He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar's gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart throughout the world. There in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with a real knowledge of the human soul." -- Carl Jung
I'm reading the collected works of Jung right now and just read Jung: A Feminist Revision. It bit a high hard one even though I can't get enough of Jungian Theory.
OK, academy, how can you make something so interesting so fucking boring? Seriously, can't you people just (w)ri(gh)te without all this pedantic bullshit? I think the season ender of Desperate Housewives was 10,000 times better than Jung: A Feminist Revision. I have to amend that, ONE MILLION times better than Jung: A Feminist Revision.
