Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Jung and the Alchemical Imagination illustrates the spiritual nature of Jungian psychology and the debt it owes to the tradition of esoteric religion. Unlike other books on Jung and alchemy which contain a psychological interpretation of alchemical material, this work uses alchemy to understand the three cornerstones of Jungian spirituality--the self, the transcendent function, and active imagination.

Through the interpretation of alchemical imagery, Raff explains the nature of these three concepts and illustrates how together they form a new model of contemporary Western spirituality. This book is also unique in selecting alchemical texts for analysis that are relatively unknown and which, for the most part, have never been interpreted. In addition, he presents two new concepts--the ally and the psychoid realm. Through the addition of these ideas, and the new understanding that they offer, it is possible to apply alchemical imagery to transpsychic experience/ that is, to a world of spirits which may not be reduced to psychological concepts. By including this realm in the study of alchemy and Jungian thought, it is possible to gain insights into the nature of visionary and ecstatic experiences that form part of the path of individuation--the road to completion.

A practical way of individuation by the method invented by CG Jung. Easy to understand and to read. A good way to understand the way the alchemists achieved their work not on the physical way, but by the spiritual and psychological way.
Good book !

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A good edit shy of good 16 août 2011

Using a classical Jungian alchemy as the guidebook, Raff takes us a patchy excursion into the arcane world of "individuation" by inner alchemy, with significant assistance from Maria von Franz, and no discernible help from an editor.

Raff's approach feels rather dated and stuck in a 70s Zurich time warp: there's not a lot of "dreaming the myth on" here. Some explanations of key concepts are not as clear as they could be and some are downright muddy or contradictory (This could be me not understanding, for example, how an a priori self described as "autonomous" can be "created" or "formulated" by an ego, especially if that self can manifest the divine? Mind you, many a Jungian is scruffy and loose in their understanding and use of the Jungian keywords -- as Shamdasani will attest -- and despite the overwhelming phenomenological evidence, the idea that the ego is never really in control remains fiercely contested in old-school circles, which appear to include Raff). Some of Raff's interpretations of alchemical images feel distinctly projected (and maybe even upside-down or back-to-front: after all, which bit symbolises the ego and which the self? Why is self the dragon and not the ego? How much does some kind of post-Enlightenment-reason-is-King complex get in the way here?). And some sections suffer from rambling repeats of the same idea, which gets lost in the fog. I fear the same may be said of this review. :)

But fear not, there is some gold here. What Raff does very well is give us a useful and practical understanding of what this strange awesome business of so-called individuation is all about. He is a quotable advocate for the power of imagination in the ongoing realisation of working out who the truck we are and building relationships with the deeper aspects of us.

So persevere with Raff, but read him with a grain of salt: in this field, you have to.

This book was insightful, inspirational, and well written. Having read this book, I have just purchased two other books written by Dr. Raff. Time to go read.

This book is incredible. As a new student of alchemy, some of the texts can be pretty heady and heavy (ie difficult to follow), but this book does an excellent job of explaining the stages of the alchemical process by analyzing emblems, and I've really enjoyed the author's insights.

Good overview for the perplexed concerning Jungian psychology and the alcemical connection. Active Imagination and fantasy explained. Does not reveal how to turn lead into gold, however.

If you are looking into active imagination this is the book for you! So much information to learn. Does a very good job of helping you through the information in a clear semi-easy way.
