Flying Saucers : A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies
Focused on the meaning behind UFO sightings, real or imaginary, and what that meant for the human psyche.
Flying Saucers : A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies, written by C.G Jung, was published in 1959. Jung, although skeptical about UFOs, focused his work on understanding the psychology behind the numerous sightings that were reported in the 1950s and what they reveal about human minds. He positioned the upswing of encounters as the rise of a "modern myth in the making." The book reflects on what these sighting explain about the psychology of the culture.
