Jung's The Red Book has an enormous complexity of meaning deriving from Jung's intimate experiences, which are still being discussed and elaborated on by the Jungian community all over the world. The present volume focuses on some of its main aspects and its importance for the understanding of the work of Jung. The Red Book is often mistakenly seen as a product of a midlife crisis of Jung's, caused by his break with Freud. However, although this crisis was present, the work is better understood as a manifestation of unconscious symbolism of Jung's individuation process that started in his childhood. Certain symbols of The Red Book can be traced back to Jung's earliest years, reaching their peak during the period of writing the book and continuing throughout his creative life.Jung's work is therefore understood as having a Janus face: like the old Roman god of the gates it has two faces, one looking back to the past, the other looking to the future.

Review:

Walter Boechat's approach to Jung's Red Book is unique. He dissects and analyses the structure and meaning of the book so as to make us see the man inside the torment (not the other way around), and what this man's torment has to teach both the culture at large and the imaginative methods of analytical psychotherapy. --Gustavo Barcellos, Jungian analyst and author

In this lucid and accessible reading of Jung's Red Book, Walter Boechat combines historical scholarship with profound psychological and symbolic understanding. Source materials are integrated seamlessly, with a personal touch that lends the feeling of familiarity expressed with an erudition that manages to remain conversational. It is a guide into the depths, not only of Jung's Red Book, but also of the soul of the reader. --Joe Cambray, PhD, Provost, Pacifica Graduate Institute, and Past President, International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP)

Walter Boechat has now taken up the challenge of reflecting upon what Jung's Red Book may hold for the future of psychological theory and psychotherapy.In so doing, he has provided bridges between the past and the future of the book, opening paths which are salutary and instructive, and which provide an opportunity for Jungian psychology to begin again, through relinking concepts with the imaginal ground from which they arose, refreshing them with new sap. --Sonu Shamdasani, editor of the Red Book; from the Preface
