Description

In 1913, C.G. Jung started a self-experiment that he called his "confrontation with the unconscious": an engagement with his fantasies, which he charted in a series of notebooks referred to as The Black Books. The Red Book drew on material recorded therein to 1916 but Jung continued to write in them for decades. The Black Books shed light on the elaboration of Jung's personal cosmology and his attempts to embody insights from his self-investigation into his life and relationships. Magnificently presented, featuring a revelatory essay by Sonu Shamdasani, and both translated and facsimile versions of each notebook, The Black Books offers a unique portal into Jung's mind and the origins of analytical psychology.
