Met 120 kleurenfoto’s illustreert dit fotoboek hoe de theorie van Carl Gustav Jung, een van de grondleggers van de analytische psychologie, is doordrenkt van voorbeelden uit de klassiekers van onze westerse literatuur. Afbeeldingen van geannoteerde boeken uit Jungs bibliotheek tonen hoe deze Zwitserse arts zijn inzichten voor een wetenschappelijke publiek tracht te vertalen. Ook diverse alchemistische teksten staan afgebeeld en de auteur gaat op zoek naar parallellen met Jungs psychologie van het onbewuste. ( )

Epigraph
The Universe (which others call the Library)...
- Jorge Luis Borges

When reading the literature, one must not be content with just one book but must possess many books, for "one book opens another."
- C. G. Jung

And you shall be in the Book.
- Edmond Jares
Dedication
First words
At Cologny and Kusnacht, by the shores of Lake Geneva and Lake Zurich, stand two outstanding libraries, each a testament to the remarkable bibliophiles who assembled them:  Martin Bodmer and C. G. Jung, the former an exile from Zurich and the latter an exile from Basel.

The origins of Jung's philosophy.

In 1912, C. G. Jung wrote, “Should it happen that all traditions in the world were cut off with a single blow, the whole mythology and history of religion would start over again with the succeeding generation.”With this, Jung gave new understanding to the concept of world literature: that the history of human thought lay in the soul, passed from generation to generation, always ready to reemerge.

This book shows how Jung’s theory evolved through classics of Western literature, annotated books from his library, manuscripts of his Black Books and The Red Book,other major works in which he attempted to translate insights from The Red Book for a scientific public, the Gnostic and alchemical texts he studied and presented as parallels to his psychology of the unconscious, and Eastern texts he presented in collaboration with leading scholars, establishing a cross-cultural psychology of the process of higher development.
