The article analyzes the book "Religion and the Cure of Souls in Jung's Psychology," by Hans Schaer. Schaer represents in this volume stand of Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist, toward the churches, which, to sum up this reviewer's impression, should please immensely a confused public and a doubtful clergy and should also antagonize psychologists of whatevermake and mind. The author apparently means to imply that in his opinion Jung is as "good as a religion," rather than that Jung is "like religion," which of course he is not.
