However that may be, Dr. Jung went on to write a massive book about symbolism of transformation: MYSTERIUM CONIUNCTIONIS: AN INQUIRY INTO THE SEPARATION AND SYNTHESIS OF PSYCHIC OPPOSITES IN ALCHEMY, translated by R. F. Hull (2nd e. 1970; German original ed. in two parts, 1955 and 1956). Briefly, the synthesis of psychic opposites involves the inner "mysterium coniunctionis" of the feminine spirit in one's psyche with the masculine spirit.

Mysterium Coniunctionis was first published in the Collected Works of . It was Jung's empirical discovery that certain key problems of modern man were prefigures in what t he alchemists called their 'art' or 'process'.

Volume 14 of the Collected Works presents Jung’s last great work, on which he was engaged for more than a decade, from 1941 to 1954. He finished it in his eightieth year. All these themes are brought together in Mysterium Coniunctionis, where Jung continues his work of interpretation by examining in detail a number of texts taken from the alchemical classics. The scope of the book is indicated in its subtitle: An Inquiry into the Separation and Synthesis of Psychic Opposites in Alchemy.

Jung's last major work, completed in his 81st year, on the synthesis of the opposites in alchemy and psychology.

This in-depth analysis of Christian Mysticism, the Unconscious and Alchemy is put forth by Jung in scholastic fashion, as he reviews the ideas of philosophers, alchemists and religious thinkers throughout thousands of years, comparing their thoughts and demonstrating many of the overlapping ideas shared by many of them. This work is too important and too dense to merely sum up in a review, however, if you like Jung’s works, and are interested in the Christ from an Alchemical and Psychological viewpoint, this is a must read.
Thelemites will find much of their heritage presented in this text, illustrating that Thelema was not born in a vacuum.

Anyone who says this is Jung's Magnum Opus hasn't read it. This was Jung's last book and what he was trying to do was delineate the main lines of western alchemy, a discipline he believed anticipated depth psychology, but whose metaphors were a hodgepodge of astrology, kabalah,goddess worship,greco-roman mythology,superstition,primitive chemistry,neo-platonism, medieval christianity, and mystical religious experience. Kind of makes you sympathetic to early catholicism's violent insistence that everyone use the same symbols; otherwise THIS. About 1/3 of this book's 555+ pages is footnotes. Ever get a wild idea about signing up for a post-doctoral seminar on alchemy? This book is for you. And it does have some aha! moments , when Jung stops being scholarly and starts speaking as a psychologist: those wonderful moments every Jungiphile knows when it feels like the earth has dropped out from beneath your feet and you're standing in eternity------but not too many I'm afraid. Still, if you love Jung its a must have.

Very useful edition. I do not understand why some peoples say there are no page references in this digital edition. Page numbers are diplayed if one shows the menu on the tablet.

Enlightening.

This is an excellent, classic text. It is a dissertation on the alchemical union of dualistic opposites. It is definitely not an easy read, but many sections are more straightforward than the initial chapters. This is a very scholarly text that requires one to be familiar with the cited works in order to have full appreciation.

Interesting in its goal that Jung took the ideas and imagery of alchemy to heart and tried to put them in a wider context and make them useful to people of his own era. Whether he was successful is debatable but like alchemy itself this book was an interesting experiment.

To say the truth, I was a bit disappointed with this one. Unlike other works of Jung, this one is pretty dense and repetitive, and the worst part of it is that it comes to no good conclusion of the subject which is the great mystery of the complexio oppositorum or the reconciliation of opposites. Every time one gets the feeling that Jung is coming to a certain answer, he changes the subject and wanders into the complex symbolism of alchemy without providing any certain conclusion either. Nevertheless, the work is valuable insomuch a sit provides great insight into the theme of Alchemy and how the alchemists of the middle-ages and even later on worked on this problem of reconciling opposites within in order to produce the Magnus Opum. I give it 3 stars as it is definitely not the best work of Jung, even though it is one of his longest and his very last. I kind of wonder whether he actually came to a full self-realization considering his conclusions. My personal guess is that he probably didn't.
jung's final summary of his ideas. essential reading for anyone with a mind.
