5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent vade mecum, 22 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Red Book: A Reader's Edition: A Reader's Edition (Philemon) (Kindle Edition)
Go back to the 1980's and it seemed that we had a complete and comprehensive edition of Jjung' works, ably edited and co-ordinated by R C Hull. There was a small pamphlet called the Septem Sermones, which didn't quite fit. But with the letters, it was possible to feel one had a handle on Jung's work.
But then came the Seminar Notes to amplify the corpus. Now we have too to add volumes like the correspondence with Victor White, and. - and it is not the last part of the picture - the Red Book. What each stage has shown is how far Jung's work is comprised with his inner conflicts, and how say, the anima, is a reflection of and projection of his inner world. Shamdasanu and Hillman in Lament for the DeadLament of the Dead: Psychology After Jung's Red Book argue, indeed, that there must now be as many Jungian theories as there are readers, for what he is describing is a purely individual odyssey. One may not need to go that far, but with more volumes of seminar notes, etc, on the way, it becomes plain that the way we as therapists use Jungian ideas, as tutors introduce Jungian theory, and how as analysands we understand how our inner journeys are all going to need revision; and that process will take some years to come.
The Red Book is the most significant element in this - at least to date - and everyone interested in Jung's work simply has no option but to engage what Jung reveals of himself in this work.
Other reviewers have commented on the difference between the different issue, so beyond saying one needs a text volume and the facsimile I'l leave that unexplored.
What becomes certain, though, is that Jungians are in for interesting times.
