Twenty-five hundred years ago, Pythagoras taught that the simple counting numbers are the basic building blocks of reality. A century and a half later, Plato argued that the world we live in is but a poor copy of the world of ideas. Neither realized that their numbers and ideas might also be the most basic components of the human psych: archetypes. This book traces the modern evolution of this idea from the Renaissance to the 20th century, leading up to the archetypal hypothesis of psychologist C. G. Jung, and the mirroring of mathematical ideas of Kurt Gödel.

Jung And The Native American Moon Cycles

"The profound insights of Jung and the equally profound teachings of the Peoples of Turtle Island have a common root below ground." Jung and the Native American Moon Cycles describes the life of C. G. Jung as seen through the lens of the Moon Cycles, a Native American teaching about the arche- typal influences and forces that affect us at different times in our lives. Through this lens we see how the rhythm of Jung's life coincided with the great events of the 20th century. This book offers new insights into Jung's life and death, and provides a fascinating perspective on some of Jung's more important dreams. It also unexpectedly casts new light on Jung's fateful associations with Freud and Picasso and the controversial areas of his life, particularly his relationships with women and his supposed anti-Semitism. Michael Owen also shows how readers will be able to place the events of their own lives on the Moon Cycles of the Native American Medicine Wheel, gaining a new perspective into the births and deaths in their life (inner and outer). They will see what learning periods are ahead of them, and understand the critical importance of the nine-month and three-year cycles. Some of the "patterns of time" and other insights revealed: Both Jung's parents were the thirteenth and youngest in their families. Freud died twenty-seven years almost to the day after he fainted in Jung's presence and said "How sweet it must be to die." Jung dreamt of the firebombing of Dresden twenty-seven years before it happened. Jung's writings about Picasso and its relationship to Jung's death.

The Alchemical Mercurius

The figure of the alchemical Mercurius features ubiquitously and radically in Jung’s later works, but despite this, there has been little research concerning Mercurius in Jungian studies to date. In this book, Mathew Mather explores the figure of the alchemical Mercurius and contextualises and clarifies its significance in Jung’s life and works. Placing the alchemical Mercurius as a central concern reveals a Jungian interpretation in which the grail legend, alchemy and precessional astrology, as three thematic threads, converge. In such a treatment, Jung’s belief in the dawning of a new platonic month emerges as a central consideration and an esoteric perspective on Jung’s life and works is brought more fully to light, constructing a life-myth interpretation. The book is comprised of three parts: Aurea Catena: locating the figure of the alchemical Mercurius within the Western esoteric tradition Daimonic Encounter: the relevance of this figure in Jung’s personal life Magnum Opus: Jung’s portrayal of this figure in key texts such as Synchronicity, Aion, Mysterium Coniunctionis; and Emma Jung and von Franz’s The Grail Legend. The Alchemical Mercurius is a unique contribution to analytical psychology, substantially revealing ‘esoteric Jung’ and providing valuable perspectives on the theme of his myth for our times. The book will appeal to researchers and academics in the field of analytical psychology as well as postgraduate students.
