Item Description...
A guide to understanding the personal stages of growth that lead to maturity and wholeness--the innocent child, the self-conscious, the true self--demonstrates how the true work of maturity is to grow through these levels. Reprint.

Publishers Description
Presenting an original and vital model for psychological development, the brilliant and pioneering author of He, She, and We offers a new understanding of the stages of personal growth through which maturity and wholeness can be achieved.

Using quintessential figures from classical literature--Don Quixote, Hamlet, and Faust--Robert Johnson shows us three clearly defined stages of consciousness development. He demonstrates how the true work of maturity is to grow through these levels to the self-realized state of completion and harmony.

In Johnson's view, we all reach the stages depicted by Don Quixote, Hamlet, and Faust at various times of our lives. The three represent levels of consciousness within us, each vying for dominance. Don Quixote portrays the innocent child, while Hamlet stands for our self-conscious need to act and feel in control though we have no real connection to our inner selves. Faust embodies the master of the true self, who has gained awareness by working through the stages.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not One Of His Best  Jul 5, 2004
Johnson is one of my favorite authors. He's a Jungian analyst who writes about myths and how they can tell us a lot about our life experiences and why we do what we do and why things happen to us. In this (short) book (105 written pages) he writes about the three levels of consciousness of men and gives a literary example of each. Don Quixote is Two-Dimensional Man (or simple man), Hamlet is Three-Dimensional Man (or complex man), and Faust is Four-Dimensional Man (or enlightened man). Johnson describes how men go through these stages, but sometimes become stuck at complex man because they have become so educated that they cannot give up their knowledge and return to the simplicity that can be seen in enlightened man. Although there are some interesting statements made in this text, there isn't much new and different here from Johnson's other work, and what is new and different is not "fleshed out" to give the reader a feeling of fully understanding what is being discussed. Although I'll continue to read Johnson, this is not one of his best works.
Thoughtful and Thought-Provoking  Dec 28, 2002
Robert Johnson is a great first encounter with Jungian Psychology. The books are short and his points are direct. When you see the size of his books you first think that there isn't much to them, but it isn't long before you recant. I was somewhere near page five when I realized that I was considering the world from an entirely different introspection. Johnson explains how literature, myths and even ancient stories are consistent with overall human nature. By explaining the meaning of classic stories, Johnson explains the dilemmas of mankind, how they are timeless and universal.

In Transformations, Johnson explains how the masculine psyche begins as a Don Quixote, progresses into a Hamlet, and seeks to become a Faust. Some people live their whole lives without making it, but they do cause themselves a lot of trouble along the way. Johnson doesn't offer a solution but a path to take to find your own way.

Maybe the most comforting thing in these books is the idea that we're all struggling to get somewhere and we're not in it alone. It certainly helps my understanding of those I've come into conflict with.
