Nell’ampio panorama della produzione junghiana, il Mysterium coniunctionis rappresenta l’opera più importante degli ultimi anni. Oggetto di questi studi che tennero impegnati Jung per oltre trent’anni è la tradizione alchemica. È proprio grazie all’alchimia che riuscì ad agganciare le esperienze e intuizioni acquisite mediante la sua diretta e personale «discesa nell’inconscio» a un materiale parallelo e disponibile obiettivamente. Per Jung l’alchimia non rappresenta soltanto l’antecedente storico della moderna psicologia del profondo, ma soprattutto, con il suo infinito serbatoio di simboli e immagini, costituisce la prima rappresentazione di quegli archetipi sui quali ha innalzato l’edificio della psicologia analitica.

Carl Jung is the greatest genius and champion of the mind in our century. His ability to overview the psyche through the ages and different cultures enabled the 20th century to have a better understand of humanity as whole and our inner disconnectedness as the inevitable truth. From the stand point
Firstly, this is not an easy read for those who never studied Alchemy before and don’t understand of how the stages of the Magnus Opum (the Great Work) relate to the stages of the individuation process. If you have a good general understanding of the main stages and operations of the alchemical proc Leggi tutto
A very deep dive into the symbols and writing of alchemists that only delves two-thirds beyond the surface, making connections to the field of psychology and the sense of self implied by Jung’s collective unconscious. At times dizzying, other times overly meticulous (especially on points Jung later Leggi tutto
Anyone who says they've read the whole thing is either a liar...or...a liar. Not my favorite Jung book, but, I admittedly only actually read a little mroe than half....maybe if I'd have gotten through the whole thing, I'd have found it more relevant to...anything - that said, it still has Jung's bea Leggi tutto
Jung was a total nutcase, and is one of my biggest inspirations.
