A World within A World

This is a fictional biography, which goes deep into the mind of Carl Jung, one of the founding fathers of psychology. It goes into his motivations, and what makes all of us human. Carl Jung turned his mind into a juggle of perceptions, expecting every human being to hunt for the kill, in hopes of finding the line between individuality and choice. More

About Suzanne Steinberg

My name is Suzanne and I live in Scottsdale, AZ. So far I have written three books, A World within A World, A Fictional Biography about Carl Jung, The Manipulative Glances of Power, A Fictional Biography about Fredrick Nietzsche, and The Endless Control of Madness, A Fictional Biography about Sigmund Freud. In these three books the common strain is mental illness. Nietzsche and Jung experienced it personally as they built their own personal philosophies about life and Freud tried his best to cure it. I was drawn and motivated to write books exploring our cultural perspective of mental illness because of my mom's personal battles with mental illness. My mom became mentally ill when I was twelve and has recently been placed into a long term locked down facility. My frustration with society's answers to chronic mental illness, which for many is homeless and denial, was the question on my mind while I wrote. Why in a society so obsessed with the mind, can so many go mindless and no one take note? Why is there so much optimism around an incurable disease? And how can people overuse the word crazy everyday, and never understand the significance of that word? There are people dying on the streets because we can't cure them. People cut down the diagnosis of mental illness as a joke and overuse it in casual conversation, not realizing those words are too painful for even a mentally ill person to claim, because it isolates them in an uncompassionate world.
