In this unique work Murray Stein and Elena Caramazza share their rich and reflective conversations on several key themes through an exchange of letters, essays, and emails.

This rich discussion, ignited by Stein's 2016 lecture on Wolfgang Pauli's The Piano Lesson, moves from the function of temporality to shame and the problem of evil, touching on the work of C. G. Jung, Raimon Panikkar, Erich Neumann and Marie-Louise von Franz. Stein's contributions detail how Pauli's contact with Jung inspired a thought experiment which attempted to merge quantum physics and depth psychology, and how Neumann and Jung compare on 'the problem of evil', while Caramazza shares clinical case studies and personal reflections to illustrate her points. The book concludes with a script inspired by Pauli, and an afterword which expands on the insights of the main text.

Temporality, Shame, and the Problem of Evil in Jungian Psychology will be of great interest to academics and students of Jungian and post-Jungian ideas and to analytical psychologists in practice and in training.

"What an intriguing and interesting read this dialogue is between two Jungian analysts! It is the deep psychic perception of small-large events, simple but extraordinary, that both of them experienced and have remained etched into their memories the quicksilver of a significant correpondence about the exceptional experience of the Nobel winning physicist Wolfgang Pauli which allows us to participate in their own personal and clinical experience." - Daniela Iorio, CIPA

"Elena and Murray's choice of correspondence to illustrate an intensely shared observation pleasantly reminds us of other times and other literature that have formed us. The authors' courageous research, while implicitly emphasising the constraints of today's physicalism, paves the way for a theory that "in another era" would integrate and unify physics and depth psychology, causality and synchronicity, subject and object, temporality and timelessness. How can we not be grateful to Elena and Murray for this vital and inspiring perspective about sense and unity?" - Anna Panepucci, AIPA and IAAP

"One never tires of exploring the wonderful mind of Wolfgang Pauli! This remarkable book, incorporating a real e-mail exchange between its two authors begins in one of Pauli's active imaginations. The outcome includes the introduction of a new and original notion of 'dyschronicity'. This adds something to the literature on 'time'. But then something a little mysterious happens - and I think it is the result of the relational dialogue itself and the human connection between the two people - and the conversation moves into a focus on 'evil'. The twinning of 'time' and 'evil' is extremely challenging for any reader but, having considered it, I found it illuminating. And that is hard to find in today's Jungian field, wherein 'evil' comes dangerously close to being done to death. Not in this volume, though!" - Andrew Samuels, University of Essex, UK

"The experience of time, confrontations with evil, the role of the ego in the realization of the Self: three basic threads that run through the works of Jung and emerge as determining factors in his more mature thought and in his later works. These, along with the question of shame, are artfully and thoughtfully delved into by two analysts with years of experience in clinical work. The experience of time (and of timelessness) is examined by Murray Stein in light of four types of experience called by the author "cronicity", "acronicity", "synchronicity" and "dischronicity" while both Stein and Caramazza reflect on the problem of evil and on its relation to divinity from various points of view. Their profound reflections which draw on science, philosophy, theology and clinical psychology are woven together and make for a highly stimulating and rewarding read. The book, which contains articles by Murray Stein previously published in magazines and journals as well as passages taken from a volume published by Elena Caramazza on the theme of evil and suffering, is a small but extremely rich compendium of reflections on essential questions. A dialogue between two thinking souls who never shy away from sharing personal experience; it will nourish the soul of anyone looking for a serious, feeling treatment of these deep and, at times, disturbing issues of human existence." - Robert M. Mercurio, training analyst ARPA, Rome, Italy
