Jung Journal: Amazing Grace by Linda Carter

In “Amazing Grace,” author Linda Carter provides a lens through which we are able to view the current upheaval of our time. A unique clinical hour is described initiating the evolving trajectory of the song and notion of “Amazing Grace” based on three “case studies” or “stories”: the story of Patient M., the story of John Newton, and the story of the song as a transcendent entity unto itself. Offered is a theoretical, in-depth analysis of the case, the music, and the archetypal patterns reverberating from the microcosmic dyadic level to the macrocosmic collective. The author weaves a complex tapestry of the necessity of grief, lamentation, and paradox and play expressed through neuroscience, mythology, politics, and art.
