Revue de presse

"...the library angle does make Jung's sources vivid and concrete. Even for those who still find Jung's writings hard to understand, this book offers an attractive and useful introduction and a valuable archaeological attempt to dig him free from Freudianism." ----Times Literary Supplement

Présentation de l'éditeur

In 1912, C.G. Jung wrote, Should it happen that all traditions in the world were cut off with a single blow, the whole mythology and history of religion would start over again with the succeeding generation. With this, Jung gave new understanding to the concept of world literature: that the history of human thought lay in the soul, passed from generation to generation, always ready to re-emerge. This book shows how Jung s theory evolved through classics of Western literature, annotated books from his library, manuscripts of his Black Books and The Red Book. It includes other major works in which he attempted to translate insights from The Red Book for a scientific public, the Gnostic and alchemical texts he studied and presented as parallels to his psychology of the unconscious, and Eastern texts he presented in collaboration with leading scholars, establishing a cross-cultural psychology of the process of higher development.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Essential Companion to Jung's Red Book 29 juillet 2012
Par Lance S. Owens - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
"C. G. Jung: A Biography in Books" is the most important biographical study of Jung published in a generation, and the essential companion to reading and understanding Jung's "The Red Book: Liber Novus". And to boot, the book is beautiful - sumptuously illustrated, artfully designed, and exquisitely crafted (it is printed in Italy by Mondadori, the company that produced the Red Book). Whether you are just starting to read about Jung or have been studying his work for decades, an evening with "A Biography in Books" will open new perspectives.

Why is "A Biography in Books" essential reading? Here we have the first rendition of Jung's history that integrates an understanding of Liber Novus into the story. By illustrating the centrality of Liber Novus in Jung's life, Sonu Shamdasani radically transforms the way in which Jung's biography will hereafter be rendered and read. This is a landmark accomplishment.

Sonu Shamdasani has spent decades immersed in the universe of Dr. Jung - including thirteen years preparing Liber Novus for publication - and the breadth of his mastery of C. G. Jung's work is daunting. A Biography in Books reflects not just that scholarly passion, but his genuine delight in sharing the treasures touched and the insights earned during his years cloistered with Jung's incalculably important but until now mostly sequestered archival legacy. And he writes here with a delightful eloquence.

After years of study, Shamdasani is unequivocal in his affirmation that Liber Novus is the long occulted key to understanding everything Jung said and wrote after 1916 (which is to say, the last forty-five years of his life). In the introduction to "The Red Book: Liber Novus", Shamdasani made this declaration:

"It [Liber Novus] is nothing less than the central book in his oeuvre. With its publication, one is now in a position to study what took place there on the basis of primary documentation ... and to grasp the genesis and constitution of Jung's later work. For nearly a century, such a reading has simply not been possible, and the vast literature on Jung's life and work that has arisen has lacked access to the single most important documentary source." (The Red Book: Liber Novus, p 221)

Now he gives elegant example of how a biographical study informed by "the single most important documentary source" begins. I say, "Begins," because this is not a rounded or complete biography, but a concise and eloquent introduction to a new biographical reading of C. G. Jung. (The book was first conceived simply as a catalog for the Red Book exhibition at the Bodmer Library in Geneva, and then quickly grew into this major prologue to a biography.)

To understand Jung, we must meet and understand Liber Novus. That is easy to say, but Liber Novus is not an easy book to meet or to understand. Most readers have difficulty grasping what the dear doctor was doing during the critical period of visionary activity documented in his big Red Book. After a couple of years lecturing about Jung and his Liber Novus, it is my observation that very few people succeed in reading the Red Book all the way through.

Shamdasani helps penetrate mists of incomprehension and open up the book for a reading. He gives an excellent account of what Dr. Jung was doing in his visionary adventure. In the process, he locates Jung and his Liber Novus within the historical tradition of visionary literature and the humane legacy of the great book. Shamdasani then demonstrates how Jung's primary effort at interpreting his visions and materializing them into the Red Book informed his life-long understanding of visionary literature writ large.

Employing immense erudition, Shamdasani has accomplished something of great import in this study: he has removed Jung from the oft-cultish cloisters of analytical psychology, and located his experience and his New Book into the comparative context of visionary literature as well. He illustrates how Jung offers a radical new visionary hermeneutics of creative activity. As Dr. Shamdasani states:

"Rather than present his own material as `art,' Jung sought to mine it for insights into the psychology of creative works in general. Jung was in effect proposing a new theory of creativity and literary inspiration." (p 143)

Now academia may finally be forced to confront Jung - a challenge that has been a long time in coming. How can one now comparatively read Dante's "Inferno" along side William Blake's "Marriage of Heaven and Hell" without adding a reading of Jung's journey to "Hell," recorded in Liber Novus? Shamdasani illustrated this point in his June 2010 address at the Library of Congress (available on the LOC website), and again here in his book. He concluded his remarks at the Library Congress with a comment every student of Jung should ponder:

"If, as Jung claimed, Dante and Blake clothed visionary experience in mythological forms, could we not pose the question: Did Jung in turn attempt to clothe visionary experience in conceptual psychological forms? If so, the power and significance of his work does not reside in his concepts, which are familiar to us, but in the visionary experience which was at the back of them." (LOC transcript online)

In sum, this sumptuously illustrated and powerfully written volume is a landmark in Jungian studies. It is not the very first book to read about C. G. Jung, but it should be on everyone's short reading list. If you are considering finally trying to read "The Red Book: Liber Novus," spend a few evenings with Dr. Shamdasani and "C. G. Jung: A Biography in Books."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Accessible Entry to the Thought of C.G. Jung 23 juillet 2012
Par Donald L. Conover - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Professor Sonu Shamdasani has proven himself to be one of the leading scholars on the life and work of Dr. Carl G. Jung, particularly thanks to his work on _The Red Book_. Here he provides us with a unique perspective on Jung's oeuvre, taking as its foundation Dr. Jung's library.

With beautifully reproduced color plates, Professor Shamdasani has demonstrated the importance of images and symbols to the prodigious lifelong scholarship, teaching and therapies of Dr. Jung, which was incomparable among 20th Century psychologists.

Professor Shamdasani's lucid explanations of Dr. Jung's process, and the development of his theories, ties together the contents of his vast library, with very interesting highlights of the notations made in Dr. Jung's personal copies of ancient books, some of which date back centuries. Here we see clearly the scholar at work.

Dr. Jung's detractors often suppressed his work by calling him a mystic or worse. One might believe that such approbation often came from religious communities, which failed to appreciate that he was their greatest ally in modernizing their ideas from their sterile dogma. They suppressed his work because they failed to understand it. They failed to understand it because its breadth and depth was so vast that they probably did not read it. Here Professor Shamdasani provides essentialized comments on many of the facets of Dr. Jung's work, thereby debunking much of the dismissive myth surrounding the man.

Alchemy was one such facet of Jung's work, often misunderstood. Most laymen think of the idea of the production of gold from lead, but Jung demonstrated, through decades of scholarship, that the ancient alchemists were really exploring ideas modern science regards as elements of psychology. Professor Shamdasani shows us, assisted by Jung's own handwritten manuscripts, how and why Dr. Jung felt alchemy was important enough to dedicate decades of his life to his research on the subject, which yielded four books and other scholarly output.

High praise for Professor Shamdasani for providing us this accessible entry into the thought of one of the 20th century's leading scholars.

So I'm thinking, I've been shocked by Shamdasani's bio-killing "Jung stripped bare", been severely shaken by his misconception-crushing cubist biography "Jung and the making...", and nearly drowned in the scholarly lake on which he sailed the good ship "Liber Novus": am I up for another assault by the Chief Inspector of the Jung History Thought Police?

The answer is yes, for my fears were in vain. This is a gentle (by comparison) and beautiful book that takes us through some key aspects of Jung's scholarly journey with a slow, revealing wander though Jung's library (and one of his neighbour). Full of pictures of Jung's books and manuscripts and the books (and manuscripts of books) Jung read, this is the story told from the book's view.

Perhaps, like me, you'll recognise a kindred spirit as you glimpse Jung's underlining and marginalia, turn ever so-slightly green at those treasured inscriptions from author-friends that no-one's heard of like James Joyce, or be quietly relieved to discover Jung's manuscripts are no neater than your own! You may also start to grasp the enormous amount of work CGJ had to do to write just one volume of the CW.

This is a personal journey, or at least as personal as the whispers from the objects in a library permit it to be, and for me, the most moving. Fellow bibliophiles, writers, and the artistically insane are sure to enjoy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding - essential for understanding Jung 21 avril 2012
Par Dennis Roberts - Publié sur
Format: Relié
A beautiful and readable book that explores Jung as author, reader, and collector of books. Readers will find here an insightful and well-researched exploration of Jung. While this shouldn't be one's first introduction to the founder of analytic psychology (there are others that should be read before this book) this book will deepen your understanding and appreciation of Jung as an explorer and scholar of the human psyche. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insight into Jung 13 octobre 2013
Par Elton Hall - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
There are many books on Jung, his thought and his life. This book by the chief editor of the immensely valuable Red Book provides deep insights into what influenced Jung's thinking and how his thinking developed. For anyone seeking a deeper understanding of Jung, this book is a must. It is also beautifully produced, worthy of its subject, including a selection of Jung's pictoral presentations of his dream and active imagination.
