Jung’s Red Book III: “Scrutinies,” the Final Chapter


Course Description

After encounters with numerous inner figures on his way to discover his lost soul, Carl Jung concludes his mysterious Red Book with a third volume entitled “Scrutinies.” In this text we will encounter several enigmatic and evocative characters, including Philemon (Jung’s guide), Salome, Elijah, Hap, Abraxas, and the serpent.

A substantial part of this volume concerns the magician Philemon, who addresses the Dead in Seven Sermons while Jung observes. Who are the Dead addressed by Philemon? Has Jung’s daring enterprise successfully revisioned Christianity? What values does Jung derive from his encounter with his imaginal life? What does it mean that a leader of the early 20th century psychoanalytic movement let his fantasy world determine his fate? How can we articulate the relevance of this book for our 21st century world? What is lost when our world of technology, science, and reason has relegated magic and the soul to the irrecoverable past?

While participation in the previous two courses on Jung’s Red Book will add richness to one’s experience, this course has been designed to accommodate everyone.
