(Yahoo)   Carl Jung's "Red Book" an illuminated manuscript about his dreams, will be shown to the public for the first time. Disappointed early reviewers say it's pretty much just a rip off of Star Wars   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 60

I've been wanting to buy a copy of this ever since I heard about it. Then I read the article and saw the $195 price tag-- yah!

I'll put in a request for it at our public library. However, since all the libraries in Ohio got their budgets slashed 30% this year, I doubt they'll buy it. :(

Just let it be public, it would be what the man would want. Or, alternatively, breed it into our collective awareness through evolution.

It's believed Jung wanted the book published but was afraid he would be perceived as mad.

kinda odd that JUNG would worry about what people thought of him

The book is pretty much the equivalent of his soul. Would you let others see yours so lightly? I can't wait to see it, but it's something I can understand his hesitation.

This is something I thought I would never see, at least it's possible now, though I'll be waiting for the paperback. I've gone round and round in my opinions of Jung, finally settling into great admiration with misgivings on some points, and those have been reworked in ways that make more sense in light of mainstream psychology. He still isn't given enough credit for how those parts could contribute to a better understanding of human cognition and behavior. Specifically, how the idea of archetypes can be interpreted to cause less alarm in those who are easily spooked by the idea that more is going on than the lean versions of cognitive psych.

FTFA: The Red Book - equal parts extraordinary book of science and work of art - is an exquisite illuminated manuscript comparable to the artistry of the Book of Kells. It is written on heavy-gauge paper in Jung's elegant calligraphy and filled with his dreamlike and painstaking tempera paintings of mythological figures and symbolic graphic forms in deep red, teal, blue and green brushstrokes.

"Somewhere there was once a Flower, a Stone, a Crystal, a Queen, a King, a Palace, a Lover and his Beloved, and this was long ago, on an island somewhere in the ocean five thousand years ago. Such is love, the Mystic Flower of the Soul. This is the Center, the Self."

C. Jung

Anyone looking for Jung for science isn't going to find it, but he had a full-on crazy pipeline to the depths of the mind.

Psychology didn't become a science until twenty years ago anyway, so you can't fault the man.

Reading through the brochure they have a quote from Billy Corgan,

"I've always been spiritual but I've never had a proper context, and it took me awhile to find the proper context. It's hard to realize you can have any kind of relationship with God you want... and so I now have a punk rock relationship with God."


I hate Billy Corgan.

Oh, good gods no. But it's really the only psychological motif you can use to have people beat the shiat out of things.

Hmmmmm, so would Xenogears be Jungian or Freudian?

I know Xenosaga would be Jungian but the whole deal with the Id makes Xenogears more Freudian.

Oh well, still the best RPG to come out on the PS1. Shame Xenosaga didn't keep the streamlined combat system.

Xenogears doesn't adhere to a single philosophical scchol, it just bounces around while throwing around as many gratuitous references possible. Same with Xenosaga, but I'll forgive them because the entire thing was so hilariously convoluted. Also the entire "Robot Mary Magdalens" thing.

You know, I could have forgiven Xenosaga for being a poor man's Evangelion (tons of needless, ham-handed symbolism and giant robots, but with even more unlikable characters) if it weren't for the painful combat systems in every game. They just were excruciating to play.

I actually thought the battle system in the last one turned out quite nicely, especially the mech fights, and I vastly prefer Wilhelm and Albedo and the Titful Robot to about anyone in the cast of Eva.

They needed to hire whomever designed the dungeons for like Wild ARMS or something, because Xenosaga's dungeons [except the Old Miltia in the third, that was amazing] suck major balls.

I'll grant you the third one was a lot better, but I still found it quite tedious. Invariably, I didn't care about the story and characters enough to put up with the battle system and dungeons (or lack thereof) when I had other games to play (like Wild Arms 4 & 5).

What a coincidence. I always thought the line was "The Jungian Wastes are not to be traveled lightly". Turns out it's "Jundland". I guess that was a freudian slip I had when I was jung.
