About this book

The Red Book is Carl Jung's voyage of discovery into his deepest self. It provides a singular and extraordinary insight into one of the 20th century’s most celebrated minds. Jung, the founder of modern analytical psychology, created the book at a time in his life described alternately as a mid-life crisis, a psychotic break, or a reflection of the chaos that enveloped Europe during World War I. Jung practiced with himself what he was doing daily in his patient practice: taking deliberate deep dives into his murky unconscious and recording everything when emerged. Intricately painted pages alternate with accounts of his dreams, both sleeping and waking, and the results were bizarre enough that his heirs spent decades treating this book like a banned book following his death in 1961.
