Description du produit

Revue de presse

Arthur I. Miller is a master at capturing the intersection of creativity and intelligence. He did it with Einstein and Picasso, and now he does it with Pauli and Jung. Their shared obsession with the number 137 provides a window into their genius. --Walter Isaacson

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is the extraordinary story of the famous psychoanalyst Carl Jung and the groundbreaking physicist Wolfgang Pauli's struggle to quantify the unconscious. Pauli was fascinated by the inner reaches of his psyche and not afraid to dabble in the occult, while Jung looked to science for answers to the psychological questions that tormented him. In 1932, they met. Their friendship led them, in Jung's words, into 'the no-man's land between physics and the psychology of the unconscious...the most fascinating yet the darkest hunting ground of our times.' Both were obsessed with the far-reaching significance of the number '137'. Their quest to solve its enigma led them on a lifelong journey into the secrets of alchemy, the work of Johannes Kepler and the "Chinese Book of Changes". This is the story of the remarkable and fruitful collaboration between two of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century.

This is a fantastic book that was long overdue. It recounts Wolfgang Pauli's amazing relationship with Carl Jung during one of the most creative period in human history. As far as I know this has never been done before. Not to this extent anyway. But make no mistake, this is a full-fledged biography of Wolfgang Pauli. We find here the same process devised by Arthur I. Miller in "Empire of the Stars", the authors's previous book. In that case the main theme of the book was the rivalry between Sir Arthur Eddington and Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar. And that's how the book was marketed. But in reality it's more or less a biography of Chandra. This process is fine with me because I had been looking for a biography of Pauli and could not find one that was non mathematical. My search ended here.

Carl Jung stars here in the supporting role, just like he would do in any decent biography of Sigmund Freud. For both of them Jung came to play a vital role in their lives. Except that Pauli has never been a rival for Jung like Freud was. They collaborated over many years and each one saw in the other a complement of himself. Pauli was an accomplished scientist who was interested by the occult, while Jung was trying to find a scientific grounding for his theories. It was the perfect marriage between the real and the surreal. I like to view their relationship as some sort of alchemical wedding. They certainly represent a very unique case in the annals of science. Their association started when Pauli's inner world had suddenly disintegrated and he thought he was becoming insane. That is when he decided to consult with Jung. Pauli was eventually able to recover his sanity, but not completely. And that's what makes this book so fascinating.

Une magnifique histoire entre deux hommes que tout séparait à priori.
Un début de compréhension de l'incroyable unité que représentent le cosmos, la nature, l'esprit et les mathématiques.
Tout cela raconté dans le contexte de l'époque.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The reality of being. 26 décembre 2016
Par Howard Blair - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Starts off a little awkwardly and not well written here and there but as Miller advances into the material exchanged between Pauli and Jung, the awkwardness vanishes. As one reads on it seems Miller selectively brings in ideas and explanations from von Franz whose ability to rationally present key ideas in analytic psychology in a compelling way was unmatched. Miller's overview seems to me to have wisely borrowed from von Franz's explanations. As someone with decades of contemplative practice who also works professionally in logic and the foundations of physics, this book of Miller's opened opportunities to me from which I had turned aside in my younger years. It is enormously profitable reading to anyone who might feel a resonance with the idea that deep mathematical science, depth psychology and personal spiritual development have significant common ground.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating read about the crossed paths between Pauli, the physicist, and Jung, the psychoanalyst. 2 septembre 2014
Par Malcolm Stanton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I enjoyed reading this book particularly as it hints at the interface between physics and psychoanalysis, and the contrasting personalities of Jung's seriousness as opposed to Pauli's recklessness. I was also interested in Pauli's superstition about the inverse of the number 137, the fine structure constant, and the impact this had on his life.
Being a person who tends to attract 'disaster' in my own life I was fascinated to read about the 'Pauli effect' - whereby things would go wrong in the environment when Pauli was around, and this book handled this phenomenon in a light hearted way, just as it should be approached.
The downside of this book was that sometimes the prose was clumsy and there were a number of grammatical errors within the text. If it wasn't for these problems I would have given this book a 4 star rating.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating Friendship 5 février 2010
Par Thomas B. Kirsch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The relationship between Wolfgang Pauli, the Nobel Prize winning scientist and influential person in the discovery of Quantum Physics, and C.G. Jung, famed psychologist, and founder of analytical psychology, has fascinated many people. The correspondence between the two men has been published, and there are now at least three books which deal with their relationship. The author has written several books on famed scientists, and he knows that field well. However, his knowledge and sensitivity to the work of Jung is not so deep. As I am a Jungian analyst I see that he really does not "get" Jung. So I found the part about Pauli more interesting, and I tended to skip the part on Jung, because I knew that history from my own study. Nevertheless, the book is well written, well researched, and I think it adds to the lore about these two men's relationship. The fact that these two men came from such different backgrounds and fields and yet forged a close relationship makes for a fascinating story.

That a very interesting book First of all 137 is a mystery in itself. If it
varied by even a small amount on either side of 137 we would not exist.
But contrasting and bringing together Pauli's Physics skills with Jung's
Psychological skills makes fascinating reading.

Fascinating, informative, inspiring and juicy, full of detail. Vivid insight into the collaboration between the quantum physicist and Jung (and Maria von Franz too!), working toward a unified field theory of consciousness and physics- who knew? I loved this book!
