Sonu Shamdasani to release the Red Book for publication (p. ix). A high-. quality laser reproduction of Liber Novus was undertaken by W. Norton. in conjunction with the Foundation of the Works of C. Jung and the. Philemon Foundation. After stopping work on the Red book, Jung again embraced aspects of science but these were now more directly put to use to support his own theoretical frame, which could be read as a visionary science or a science of the visionary. This has led to a legacy of ambivalence regarding science, but in this article some areas of mutual interest with contemporary neuroscience are noted.

Translated by Mark Kyburz, John Peck and Sonu Shamdasani. Herausgegeben und eingeleitet von Sonu Shamdasani. Foreword by Ulrich Hoerni. Jung termed the period between 1912 and 1918 his ‘confrontation with the unconscious’. GERMAN Jung, C. (2009): Das Rote Buch. Vorwort von Ulrich Hoerni.

The Red Book, published to wide acclaim in 2009, contains the nucleus of C. Jung's later works. It was here that he developed his principal theories of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation that would transform psychotherapy from treatment of the sick into a means for the higher development of the personality.

A portable edition of the famous Red Book text and essay.

The Red Book, published to wide acclaim in 2009, contains the nucleus of C. G. Jung’s later works. It was here that he developed his principal theories of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation that would transform psychotherapy from treatment of the sick into a means for the higher development of the personality. As Sara Corbett wrote in the New York Times, “The creation of one of modern history’s true visionaries, The Red Book is a singular work, outside of categorization. As an inquiry into what it means to be human, it transcends the history of psychoanalysis and underscores Jung’s place among revolutionary thinkers like Marx, Orwell and, of course, Freud.” The Red Book: A Reader’s Edition features Sonu Shamdasani’s introductory essay and the full translation of Jung’s vital work in one volume.

Before reading any further, note: This a review of the READER'S edition - and the Reader's Edition DOES NOT include the facsimile images (art and calligraphy) of the original "Red Book: Liber Novus." I suspect many of those who ordered the book unaware of this will be surprised and disappointed. This distinction was not made clear in Amazon pre-publication information. If you wish to see the original book in all its visual glory, pay the price and order the complete folio-sized facsimile edition.

So, why then publish, and why purchase, a "Reader's Edition"? Why is the this edition important, even essential?

Because the text of "Liber Novus" (as Jung formally titled his "Red Book") is really more important than the art. Jung experienced and recorded his visions and then composed his draft manuscript of Liber Novus before beginning on the art. The art and calligraphy came later, they were composed over the following 16 years or so. The text - compiled principally between 1914 and 1915, with a last section added in 1917 - is Jung's primary record of his extraordinary odyssey across the threshold of consciousness, and into the heart of mythopoetic vision. As he said: "This inner world is truly infinite, in no way poorer than the outer one. Man lives in two worlds." This is the journal of Jung's exploration of the inner world - and it ranks as one of the most important journeys of exploration in the record of human exploration. Dr. Shamdasani, who spent thirteen years editing Liber Novus for publication, has strongly suggested that one should read the text before even looking at the images. I agree.

If you are ready to start that reading, there is another reason this "Reader's Edition" is an essential purchase: the big folio edition of "The Red Book: Liber Novus" is huge and physically very difficult to read. Holding it on your lap, or finding a way to prop it up and read it, is a painful task. God have mercy if you wear bifocals! This edition is formatted in a normal book size, and allows a more comfortable reading experience (if reading Liber Novus can ever be a "comfortable" experience). You will not be disappointed with the beauty of this smaller edition; it is bound "bible style" in soft faux leather with rounded corners, and printed using three colors of ink to add the distinctions in headings and text (this replicates the style of the folio edition). And of course, there is a marker ribbon sewn into the binding. I have no idea how such a finely crafted book can be sold at this price.

But the text is much more difficult to meet than is the beautiful art. The calligraphy and artwork are immediately stunning, even overwhelming. I know - based on the several seminars about Liber Novus I have taught over the last three years - that most people simply never make it past this visual experience; they do not read Jung's account of what happened to him between 1913 and 1916.

What confounds 
the reader now is the same 
issue that confronted Jung 
then: Though imaginative, 
mythic, apparently fictive, and ultimately subjective, what Jung met in his wanderings spoke with the voice of an objective fact. It was independent, ineffably ancient, and yet intimately and synchronously involved with human history. He perceived it as real, and the story it told had the tenor of a revelation. Without some introduction, some guiding insight into what the man was doing, most readers become quickly disoriented.

To guide your first journey through Liber Novus, I highly suggest you start by reading (again) Jung's biographical memoir, "Memories, Dreams, Reflections." At very least, study again Chapter 6, "Confrontation with the Unconscious." Then closely read Shamdasani's very fine introductory essay that prefaces Jung's text in this Reader's Edition. Next, get Dr. Shamdasani's beautiful new book, "C. G. Jung: A Biography in Books" - you will see my full review of that volume on the Amazon product page. After that, there are several hours of free lectures online from my seminars on Liber Novus. Thousands of people have them found useful, and you can find them easily by searching online for "The Red Book Lectures" or "C.G. Jung and the Red Book."

Then, read. Take it slowly, give it deep consideration. It is quite a journey.

Reading reviews on the book I get the impression most view it as a story or a fantastical tale told from a troubled mind, and only see it as this. But it can be viewed differently, from the right mind-set. To me it is all, every sentence and experience told a metaphor for everyone's journey in life. Reading from beginning to end is like taking down the structure you've built your life upon subconsciously, and rebuilding it using tools and ideas of a finer quality, adding to with your own learned methods, if you have any, that you know to work as well, and discarding of the tools you used before that you thought worked well, but realize you only used because you knew of nothing else, or were too stubborn to use anything else. It can be read as a fantastical story, or as insight into the beginnings of Jung's later scholarly works. Or it can be read as Walden, or Thus Spoke Zarathustra, or the Bible can be read. Your mind-state determines your interpretation of it. And you may get different meanings as you read it in different periods of your life.

Absolutely beautiful drawings, a true ART book. Purchased because I cannot read German.
I had bought the smaller ‘American edition’, and was very disappointed because it only has a few of Jung’s drawings and those look like they were done by a 3 year old. The book itself is worth reading.
After I found out that that edition did not have Jung’s drawings I decided to go ahead and spend the books for the true edition. I found out that it does include the ‘American’ translation as well.
The drawings, They are fantastic, so beautiful. Read how he created his own colored inks, by grinding.
I’m astounded by the drawings and his ability to come up with a totally new type of psychology.
It amazes me how much time it must have taken to just create this book with its drawings and yet, work as a psychologist, go to conferences, write for publications, have a family, as well as having interests in other things such as Alchemy and Spiritual Paranormal.
Well, I’ll end with saying the book is amazing as well as the man behind it.

This is a massive book in size. It's a two hander that gives you the feeling of holding an illuminated manuscript. It's beautiful as a book above and beyond its content. You will need a special shelf, special place to spend time exploring this book. Because this book was personal, meant to be read/reviewed by the author C.G. Jung, himself, it's a bit inaccessible at first. I recommend Madness and Creativity (Carolyn and Ernest Fay Series in Analytical Psychology) and Lament of the Dead: Psychology After Jung's Red Book as side-by-side reading. Some might say this book is not for the lay person. I disagree, but this is a book that requires time, reflection and perhaps a little outside study. But then aren't those always the best books in our lives?
