Review- The Eden Project: In Search of the Magical Other

Posted by William Berry | Filed under Reviews | No Comments


Like most other books I’ve read this year, this took me longer to read than it should have. The book isn’t long, and it’s interesting enough to get through in a short period of time. I definitely enjoyed the book, quoting the author (and others the author quoted) multiple times while reading it.

The book explains the some of the Jungian theory of romantic relationships, specifically how we project onto our beloved and additionally expect them to save us: from death, from the hardships of life, from ourselves.

I remember being awestruck by the book, “We” by Robert Johnson, many years ago. I felt it removed some of the illusion of romantic love, and would help one move on from what ultimately was a delusion. In fact, I’ve had client report it did just that. I think, “The Eden Project: In Search of the Magical Other” does the same, but takes it further, builds upon it. I’m not sure if it is “recency effect”, and it certainly has been over a decade since I read, “We”, but I found “The Eden Project” more in depth, and inspiring of growth. I definitely recommend it if you’re interested in understanding romantic love and how to transcend it.
