The second understands and recognizes this other by its function as a repository of characteristics cast from oneself.

Liquid Love: On the Frailty of Human BondsLiquid Love: On the Frailty of Human Bonds

This book is about the central figure of our contemporary, 'liquid modern' times - the man or woman with no bonds, and particularly with none of the fixed or durable bonds that would allow the effort of self-definition and self-assertion to come to a rest. Having no permanent bonds, the denizen of our liquid modern society must tie whatever bonds they can to engage with others, using their own wits, skill and dedication. But none of these bonds are guaranteed to last. Moreover, they must be tied loosely so that they can be untied again, quickly and as effortlessly as possible, when circumstances change - as they surely will in our liquid modern society, over and over again.

Owning your own shadow
Owning your own shadowOwning your own shadow This powerful work from acclaimed Jungian analyst and best-selling author of 'He', 'She' and 'We' explores our need to 'own' our own shadow – the term Jung used to describe the dark, unlit part of the ego. Robert Johnson guides us through an exploration of the shadow: what it is, how it originates, and how it interacts and is made through the process of acculturation. Johnson asserts that until we have undertaken the task of accepting and honouring the shadow within us, we cannot be balanced or whole, for what is hidden never goes away, but merely – and often painfully – turns up in unexpected places.
