The human shadow is one of his less popular works but perhaps due to its dark nature, people are more willing to overlook it. Jung described the humans shadow as everything we as humans don’t want to admit about ourselves. “It is quite within the realms of possibility for a man to recognize the relative evil of his nature, but it is a rare and shattering experience for him to gaze into the face of absolute evil”.
