C. G. Jung’s Red Book in a hurry – Narrative


Prelude The «Red Book» created between 1914 and 1930 can be described as a visual diary of dreams.  Jung  described this book – its language and emotions seem at times almost embarrassing – as important testimonies of his psychological and spiritual development. The psychoanalyst referred to his unfinished work as a !necessary but annoying ‘aesthetic … Continue reading

Memories, Dreams, Reflections by C.G. Jung, Aniela Jaffe, Clara Winston


It was always astonished when I heard C.G. Jung speaking (on YouTube) how well and simple he can explain his rather complex system. In this book several key ideas are equally well presented. This lead me to believe that the more casual and biographic books are  fine starting point for understanding Jung, not only his life and but also … Continue reading

The Psychology of C.G.Jung Walter-Verlag 1972


I bought Jolande Jacobi’s  classic book – for 60 years on the market –  in Zurich from my favorite second hand bookshop (Antiqariat sounds better). The hardcover edition is  in German and came with lots of marks – I added even more. Jolande Jacobi’s offers the reader a comprehensive review of the central content of C.G. Jung’s system. Jolande Jacobi, student … Continue reading

C.G. Jung’s Red Book and ‘The Seven Sermons to the Dead’


When I had my last project in Zürich I had a chance to see the Red book.  C.G. Jung marked its unfinished work, ‘a necessary, but annoying ästhetisierende elaboration’. The adjective “ästhetisierende” means to place an object into an aesthetic context and qualified by criteria as beautiful or ugly. That hits the core of the matter. The ‘Red Book’ connects aesthetics with an aura … Continue reading
