Spring 82 - 2009

Symbolic Life

227 pages, ISBN 978-1-22670-60-4

This issue of Spring celebrates the 70th anniversary of Jung's 1939 lecture on “The Symbolic Life” to the Guild of Pastoral Psychology in London and considers if and how Jung’s path into living a symbolic life is still viable today.

Murray Stein, the President of the International School of Analytical Psychology in Zurich (ISAPZURICH) serves as the guest editor of this volume, and the contributors are all analysts or students affiliated with ISAPZURICH.

This issue also features an interview by Rob Henderson with Sonu Shamdasani, the editor of Jung’s famous Red Book to be published by W.W. Norton on October 7, 2009. This date coincides with the opening of the Red Book exhibition at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City where this seminal work of Jung’s is now available for the first time to scholars and the public. The Red Book, a large, illuminated volume Jung created out of his own confrontation with the unconscious between 1914 and 1930, is a profound testament to Jung’s own process of living a symbolic life and is where he developed his principle theories—of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation.
