This book represents a thorough study following the work of Jung. It is the first serious attempt to correlate the methods used in psychoanalysis and those used in the literature of alchemy and other great Western occult and mystical traditions.
In this book you will find a lot of material which was taken from alchemical and Rosicrucian sources. It studies the symbolisms of salt, sulphur and mercury, putrefaction and procreation; the grave, abyss and prison. It analyzes and explains the sun, the moon and the planets. It contains sources of the alchemical doctrine as a support of his statements.
The base of this study is on a parable from the pages of "Geheime Figuren der Rosenkreuzer," an alchemical text from the 18th century.
In it, you will read about the parable, the dream and myth interpretation, a psychoanalytic interpretation of the parable, the traditions and practices of the alchemists, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Introversion and Regeneration.
