Description - Jung on Alchemy by C. G. Jung
NB Add blurb in promotion notes. Jung realized that the fantastic images of alchemy - fire-breathing dragons, hermaphrodites, resurrected corpses, lions swallowing or giving birth to the sun - are not so far from our daily lives. He showed how, in fact, such images represent a usually unseen level that has immense power over how we feel, think and imagine our existence. He made sense of such seemingly incomprehensible symbols and showed not only how they affect us but how we can use them. Nathan Schwartz-Salant is a leading Jungian analyst with a particular interest in alchemy. His lucid introduction answers such questions as What is alchemy?' and shows what is meant by such alchemical topics as chaos', union states', and the body'. Jung on Alchemy brings together a key selection of Jung's writings on alchemy and provides the reader with a comprehensible guide to both alchemy and Jung's alchemical studies.
