Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and Psychology presents extended articles focused on theory and the integration of empirical data that bridge the gap between humanities studies and those of psychological science. Firm boundaries associated with disciplines concerned with religion and psychology are difficult to define and rapidly developing research strategies are in need of critical in-depth presentation that explores how various approaches to psychology are contributing to a broader understanding of religion in what some have claimed is a secular and others a post-secular age.

This series will be directed to a wide audience of students, scholars, and active researchers seeking up-to-date information on the diversity of approaches and methods that psychologists are applying to illuminate the wide range of phenomenon that either define or are associated with religion in individual cultures and globally. Published quarterly, each peer-reviewed issue will consist of one uniquely focused article of approximately 40,000 words. Individual issues will also be made available as a standalone book in both print and electronic format.

The article describes one individual's journey with analytical psychology from the time that Jung was still alive until the present. The author began his career in psychiatry one year after Jung's death, having met Jung prior to his death. He has experienced what it has meant to be Jungian for the past 49 years, and how the image of Jung has changed over that period of time. His experience is mainly in the English-speaking world but also as president of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP) he has experienced the growth of analytical psychology around the world.
