Item description for Psychological Interpretation of Ruth by Yehezkel Klugar & Nomi Kluger-Nash...

The biblical Book of Ruth is a love story, apparently personal and simple -- of love between women and between man and woman -- told in poetic imagery and style. Barely hiding within this immediate beauty are the archetypal depths which reveal nothing less than the eternal mystery of a love which brings about redemption and individuation both personal and transcendent, human and divine. Dr. Kluger wrote the original interpretation as part of the requirements of the first graduating class of the Jung Institute in Zrich. He later updated his work, but the thesis remains the same: the return of the feminine principle in the Bible. To this end, he examines the fate and role of the feminine as "she" travels from ancient times through various goddesses to the person of Ruth, and her destiny as restoring the original totality of masculine and feminine in equal, interacting, balance.

In counterpoint to the scholarly style of her father -- while in unison with his interpretations -- Nomi Kluger-Nash has written a woman's subjective reactions to the story of Ruth, Naomi and Orpah. To this associative style she brings further amplifications from Kabbalah into the meaning of these women who carry aspects, both light and dark, of the Shekhinah, the feminine presence of God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Psychological Interpretation of Ruth?

Excellent Jungian Interpretation  Apr 12, 2000
This is one of the finest examples of Jungian interpretation of the Bible. It combines contemporary Biblical criticism with profound psychological interpretation. Father and daughter analysts contribute two essays: Yehezikel Kluger's gives the book its title and Nomi Kluger-Nash writes from a more personal perspective about the figure of Naomi. Jungian interpretations are often wildly ahistorical, but the authors are familiar with a wide range of Biblical scholarship and can deal with the text in the original Hebrew. Their only fault is to retain too much of the outdated theories about pre-Biblical matriarchy, characteristic of Jungian works.
