The Red Book: Jung's Imagery from the ashes


Why look backwards for the next frontier? Because the seeds of imagination are immune from memory based time or so we would like to believe. Indeed there are some constants in the culture of creative imagination that beckon one. As Freud holds the mantel of psychoanalysis Jung is the father of the psyche and image. The Red Book is the phoenix from the ashes of Jung’s imagination. For nearly a quarter of a century following the death of famed psychoanalyst Carl Jung’s, his family kept the Red Book locked in a safety deposit box, which is an irony Jung would most certainly have found synchronistic, reflecting as it does nearly the number of years it took to purge the material from his own subconscious. That purge is a new ground for depth psychology to integrate into a neo-guided imagery.
