DESCRIPTION

This seminar will focus on Jung’s encounter with Izdubar, the Babylonian Bull Man. Written during 1914, the text encompasses many major themes in Liber Novus: the sickness of western materialist culture, the mythical wisdom of the east, the decline and rebirth of the god, man’s primary role in the renewal of the new god image for a new age, and the importance of the symbol and visual imagery. Jung created its paintings in The Red Book between December 1915 and February1917, during one of his most creative writing periods, when he first began to publish his new ideas about analytical psychology.
