Aion: Researches into the Phenomenology of the Self (Collected Works of C.G. Jung)

£29.99

Product description

Aion: Researches into the Phenomenology of the Self is Part 2 of the Volume 9 in The Collected Works of C. G. Jung, a series of books published by Princeton University Press in the U.S. and Routledge & Kegan Paul in the U.K. Originally published in German (1951), it is a major work of Jung's later years. Its central theme is the symbolic representation of the psychic totality through the concept of the Self, whose traditional historical equivalent is the figure of Christ. Jung demonstrates his thesis by an investigation of the Christian fish symbol, and of Gnostic and alchemical symbolism. He regards these as phenomena of cultural assimilation. Chapters on the ego, the shadow, and the anima and animus, provide a valuable summary of these elementary concepts in Jungian psychology.[1]

Much in this volume is concerned with the rise of Christianity and with the figure of Christ. Jung explores how Christianity came into being when it did, the importance of the figure of Christ and the identification of that figure with the archetype of the Self. The book discusses the problem of opposites, particularly good and evil
Internally book in very good condition, although there is some foxing. Dust jacket present, but several small tears to the top & bottom, especially at rear. Sticker on spine, presumably from a library but no other indications of library use.
