When Carl Jung embarked on the extended self-exploration he called his “confrontation with the unconscious”, the heart of it was The Red Book, a large, illuminated volume he created between 1914 and 1930. Here he developed his principal theories—of the archetypes, the collective unconscious and the process of individuation—that transformed psychotherapy from a practice concerned with treatment of the sick intotranslation, it is available to scholars and the general public. It is an astonishing example of calligraphy and art on a par with The Book of Kells and the illuminated manuscripts of William Blake. The publication of The Red Book is a watershed that will cast new light on the making of modern psychology.
