Sep 21, Eddie Watkins rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jung seems to write from the dream state; associations interleaved with digressions punctuated by potent and startling images. This is his most satisfying book for me because it has the simplest premise but is also the largest and richest.
Mysterim stretches out enormously within a limited range, gathering a life-time of inquiry into a writhing basket of conflicting thought. This method illustrates perfectly how deep experience can become when meditated upon and scrutinized and coniunctionls tangents are whole Jung seems to write from the dream state; associations interleaved with digressions punctuated by potent and startling images.
This method illustrates perfectly how deep experience can become when meditated upon and scrutinized and when tangents are whole-heartedly encouraged and darksides allowed to bloom. No need to hop-scotch around the world, just look into the pile of dead ants beneath your radiator and let your mind wander.
The conjunction of opposites: Read and reread this book to step through the microcosmic door into unlimited life right where you are. Jun 13, Evie rated it really liked it Shelves: Holy coniunctionis, Batman, this puppy is dense. Give yourself lots of time to chew on every tidbid, to reflect upon the alchemical images. For me, this is the heart of all of Jung’s investigations and musings about the psyche.
I am constantly referring to this work, and everytime I open it, I find a new golden nugget to work with. Outstanding work, but Jung doesn’t make it easy for mere-mortal readers at all, thus the 4 stars.
One of Jung’s contributions to studies ancillary to his psychiatric profession has been to the study of the history and symbolism of alchemy. Our textbooks in the public schools either treated alchemy as proto-chemistry or kysterium patent fraud. Jung suggests that at least some alchemists were quite sincere about an agenda which went beyond mere chemistry.

They, some of them, were seeking self-transformation or salvationtheir practices being an objectification of their inner states. This he seems One of Jung’s contributions to studies ancillary to his psychiatric profession has been to the study of the history and symbolism of alchemy. This he seems to demonstrate and plausibly interpret in this volume. Whether this insight was original with Jung is unknown to me. Whatever the case, I appreciated being brought to reconsider my previous dismissal of the work of alchemists.
Carl Jung is the greatest genius and champion of the mind in our century.
His ability to overview the psyche through the ages and different cultures enabled the 20th century to have a better understand of humanity as whole and our inner disconnectedness as the inevitable truth. From the stand point of any religion with his help, we now can understand our universality and the work to be done to grow as individuals and as humanity. He is not easy to read but many of his followers have it made easi Carl Jung is the greatest genius and champion of the mind in our century.
He is not easy to read but many of his followers have it made easier for us. If you read at least some of his books the most general ones, your life will be enriched and your mind enlarged. Nov 07, Ayam Abraxas rated it it was amazing.

Need another lifetime to tackle this volume again, read it while I was hitchhiking in Quebec two summers ago. The Coniunctionis refers to the Tao, or the unity of all things, it is at treatsie on practical mysticism, fitted into the language of modern day psychology. The Mysterium Coniunctionis is the unification of the conscious ego self, and the unconscious, the anima and aenima, which results in “one-ness with all things, or AyaMayA”.
Aug 17, Richard rated it liked it Shelves: Anyone who says they’ve read the whole thing is either a liar Not my favorite Jung book, but, I admittedly coniunctioni actually read a little mroe than half Jul 15, Warren Icke rated it it was amazing.
Took me years to read and to understand. Commentaries helped me though. Aug 22, Kyle rated it it was amazing Shelves: At times dizzying, other times overly meticulous especially on points Jung later nung as silly or inauthentic. In a way, it reads like an autobiography of someone quixotically consumed by readings and interpretations, and yet he comes out on the other side of Coniunctionis self-assured and collected.

May 05, Mark Fiorentino rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Bible and this Inquiry are my favorites. She was as enchanting and as eloquent in real life as she is in the book. From the first page on she seduces the reader to engage in a view of the world, no, not only the world, the whole cosmos as a unity. A unity we became seperated from.

Jung was a total nutcase, and is one of my biggest inspirations. May 08, Walt rated it it was amazing. An exceedingly difficult book, but if approached as a meditation coming back to it many times, then this book will give to the reader what ciniunctionis reader gives to it, a larger awareness.

Jung proposed and developed the concepts of extraversion and introversion; archetypes, and the collective unconscious. His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, philosophy, archeology, anthropology, literature, and related fields. He was a prolific writer, many of whose works were not published until after his death.
The central concept of analytical psychology is individuation—the psychological process of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious, while still maintaining their relative autonomy. Jung considered individuation to be the central process of human development. Jung created some of the best known psychological concepts, including the archetype, the collective unconscious, the complex, and synchronicity.
Though he was a practising clinician and considered himself to be a scientist, much of his life’s work was spent exploring tangential areas such as Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, and sociology, as well as literature and the arts.
Jung’s interest in philosophy and the occult led many to view him as a mystic, although his ambition was to be seen as a man of science.
His influence on popular psychology, the “psychologization of religion”, spirituality and the New Age movement has been immense.
