Banyen's Description: 

The most influential unpublished work in the history of psychology… is now available in a large, sumptuous edition.

When Carl Jung embarked on an extended self-exploration he called his “confrontation with the unconscious,” the heart of it was The Red Book, a large, illuminated volume he created between 1914 and 1930. Here he developed his principal theories—of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation—that transformed psychotherapy from a practice concerned with treatment of the sick into a means for higher development of the personality.

While Jung considered The Red Book to be his most important work, only a handful of people have ever seen it. Now, in a complete facsimile and translation, it is available to scholars and the general public. It is an astonishing example of calligraphy and art on a par with The Book of Kells and the illuminated manuscripts of William Blake. This publication of The Red Book is a watershed that will cast new light on the making of modern psychology.

Publisher’s Description: 

When Carl Jung embarked on an extended self-exploration, the result was "The Red Book," a large, illuminated volume he created between 1914 and 1930. However, only a handful of people have ever seen it. Now, in a complete facsimile and translation, it is available to scholars and the general public.My entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream . . . Everything later was merely the outer classification, the scientific elaboration, and the integration into life. Thus did C.G. Jung describe his work on The Red Book between 1914 and 1930. Although its existence has been known for over 80 years, it has never been published until now. This facsimile edition is accompanied by a contextual essay and notes by renowned Jungian scholar Sonu Shamdasani. 416 pp.
