The Book of Symbols: Carl Jung’s Catalogue of the Unconscious

I came across this very interesting post on BrainPickings and just had to share:

 

 

 

 

 

“A primary method for making sense of the world is by interpreting its symbols. We decode meaning through images and, often without realizing, are swayed by the power of their attendant associations. A central proponent of this theory, iconic Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Gustaf Jung, made an academic case for it in the now-classic Man and His Symbols, and a much more personal case in The Red Book.”
