POSSIBLE BOOKS: Carl Gustav Jung: The Collective Dream, Part 4

POSSIBLE BOOKS: Carl Gustav Jung: The Collective Dream, Part 4

  The Central Symbol At the center of Jung’s theory of literary criticism is his concept of the symbol. The symbol is brought to account for both poetry’s mythic nature and its significance. A symbol is the intimation of a meaning beyond the level of our present powers of comprehension. . . . When something is "symbolic," it [...]

Neurotic and Psychotic Analogs The particular expressions of a vision, Jung tells us, can never exhaust the possibilities of that vision: "What is essential in a work of art is that it should rise far above the realm of personal life and speak from the spirit and heart of the poet as man to the spirit and heart of mankind. When a form of [...]

POSSIBLE BOOKS: Carl Gustav Jung: The Collective Dream, Part 2

Modes of Creation The creative process of the poet, so far as Jung was able to follow it, consists in the unconscious activation of an archetypal image and its elaboration into a finished work. By giving it shape, the poet translates it into the language of the present and so makes it possible for us to find our way back to the deepest [...]

POSSIBLE BOOKS: “The Possible Book and the Preface”

On November 26, 1974, the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges formulated the first theory of the prologue in his own "Prologue of Prologues." (This title is not to be read as meaning a "superlative" in the manner of the Song of Songs, the Night of Nights, or the King of Kings but is the name of a page that preceded a collection of his own diverse [...]

The Human Face of Alfred Russel Wallace, Part 3

III The third version of the idea I shall mention, the most mystical of all, is the invention of a writer much less splendid than Spengler, although he was more gifted with those classical virtues usually called "rational." I am referring to the author of The Apparition of Man, the distressed but obedient Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de [...]

  II The second text I shall quote is The Decline of the West, the sensational history that brought fame to its author, Oswald Spengler. He wrote his virile pages from 1912 to 1917, six obstinate years spent starving in a gloomy tenement room in Munich. His pages were uncontaminated by the hatred of those years. Around 1915 he finished the [...]

The Human Face of Alfred Russel Wallace, Part 1

There are two separate and substantial Creations, one of Light and one of Darkness, and man’s life in this transitory world, and this world itself, is an outgrowth of the Worlds of Darkness; man’s changing material fate is a miscarriage of his spiritual destiny, a counterfeit of another life in the immortal Worlds of Light. This is one of the [...]
