Présentation de l'éditeur

In a fascinating excursion through the history of her myth, Siegmund Hurwitz presents and interprets the ancient dark-winged goddess Lilith, also known as ’the first Eve.’
The author’s extraordinarily meticulous study of the original sources brings to light a striking figure long lost from our awareness, yet highly relevant to a psychological understanding of today’s evolving masculine and feminine identities.
Case material from his analytical practice imbeds Lilith in the everyday problems of contemporary life.

That an unbridled life-urge which refuses to be assimilated lies behind depression… seems to me to be a new and important discovery. By combining the experience of a contemporary man with this historical material, Siegmund Hurwitz sheds new light on both. -- From the Foreword by Marie-Louise von Franz

Dr. Siegmund Hurwitz was a member of the innermost circle of C.G. Jung’s so-called Zurich school and he received his analytical training from Jung, Toni Wolff and Marie-Louise von Franz. He was long a scholar of Jewish mysticism and, with his gift for language, was often sought out by Jung and others when there were ancient texts to be consulted. Dr. Hurwitz published numerous articles and books over the course of his long lifetime, and he continued to maintain a small analytical practice in Zurich until his death in the Summer of 1994. Dr. Hurwitz was Jung’s dentist for many years and was, together with his wife Leni Hurwitz (one of the original editors of Jung’s Collected Works), also a personal friend. He often advised Jung on questions regarding Jewish mysticism and they shared wide-ranging interests in the fields of philosophy and religion. Dr. Hurwitz worked both as a dentist and an analyst for many years, and after his retirement from dentistry, he was able to devote more time to his writing. An early work was the article, "Archetypal motifs in Hassidic Mysticism", a contribution to the third volume of "Studies from the C.G. Jung Institute" (Rascher, 1952), and later he authored the eigth volume of the series, THE FIGURE OF THE DYING MESSIAH (1958) on his own. He continued to share his knowledge and insights by writing numerous articles, book reviews and essays.

This book isn't a book about Adam and Eve or popular myths. This book conatains every possible identity of the dark goddess. Prior to reading this book, I thought I knew a great deal about Lilitu, but after reading just chapters, I realized there was more to her than what appears. It provides cultural differences, names, myths, and many other aspects. Siegmund Hurwitz is an educated man who puts other writers to shame. I reccomend this book to anyone who really wants to know about the goddess.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Technical, but interesting 20 décembre 2001

Although I do have a degree in history, my major interest in this book was as an occultist. When I first got the book, the dryness of the language really turned me off. It felt a bit ponderous. Additionally, the author's unasked for review of Kultov's "the Book of Lilith" seemed to be building up of one's self through the tearing down of another. Upon taking a leadership position within the Temple of Lylyth, I felt I had better review some more history. I had paid for the book, so I figured I may as well read it. I actually got into it, and even quoted a few pages to the Temple's mailing list. The second part is the book's saving grace, as it talks about the psychological aspect of Lilith in modern Jewish people as manifested through dreams. They are quite symbolic, and give a deep, if confusing, look into the minds of other people.
I would recommend this book for the serious student of Lilith over and above any other, due to the fact that it clearly contextualizes Lilith both as a historical and modern phenomenon within the culture that created her. This book is also not feminist, and the images of Lilith that come from out of the minds of men may have more meaning and impact on a male reader than a feminist pro-Lilith description.

This is the most "heady" book I've read on the subject of Lilith. Very in depth, thoroughy reviewing the many passages written about this goddess ages ago. Recommended for a more in depth analysis of this subject.

Loved it. Definitely one of the best academic treatments of Lilith out there. HOWEVER, I will tell you that there are a number of instances in this book where I feel that Hurwitz is trying to make direct literary comparisons and/or character associations to Lilith without sufficient evidence. I'm not saying he is wrong in ALL of these comparisons, but I do think that there are times when he doesn't sufficiently support his claims.

All in excellent piece of work.

I definitely recommend it!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A technical examination of the myth of Lilith 30 septembre 2005
Par D. Griffith - Publié sur
I had more expectations for this book. The author quickly lost my respect as he spent much of his effort criticizing Barbara Koltuv's book on Lilith. His dry writing did not keep my attention for long. He did have some good points and info.

If the myth of Lilith is your interest it's worth reading.
