WISDOM HAS BUILT HER HOUSE –
PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF THE FEMININE

Edited by Andreas Schweizer and Regine Schweizer-Vüllers
260 pages, hardbound, illustrated in color, ISBN 978-3-85630-776-9 
Sfr. 38.– / € 33.– / USD 36.–

    For the house of wisdom that already exists in the beyond – in the unconscious – to truly manifest within an individual human being, the whole of a person is required, along with all their four psychic functions of consciousness. This encounter with wholeness – with the divine – is a shocking event that leaves both parties – the human and the divine – renewed. The cover image of this volume portrays precisely this kind of event. It was painted by a Sicilian artist, Antonello da Messina (15th century) and it depicts L’Annunciata, The Annunciation of Mary, the fateful moment in which Mary encounters the Archangel Gabriel and becomes aware of her destiny. The angel is not depicted; we see only Mary and the shock she experiences in her encounter with the divine.

The essays in this volume by Marie-Louise von Franz, Rivkah Schärf Kluger, Gotthilf Isler, and Laurel Howe revolve around this encounter. They detail the possible union of the opposites – the divine with the human, the feminine with the masculine, the demonic with the redemptive. Ultimately, they are all about a new godimage in which the feminine – Wisdom in its feminine form – is united with the masculine. This development has been in the making within the collective unconscious for centuries and it wants to become a reality in our time.

STONE BY STONE –
REFLECTIONS ON THE PSYCHOLOGY OF C.G. JUNG

Edited by Andreas Schweizer and Regine Schweizer-Vüllers
352 pages, hardbound, illustrated in color, ISBN 978-3-85630-765-3 
Sfr. 38.– / € 33.– / USD 38.–

    The accompanying frontispiece of this publication shows two masons engaged in placing the capstone on a building. Above this stone is the word “lapis” indicating the alchemical stone. To the alchemists, the lapis was infinitely precious. It healed illnesses, brought about miracles, endowed long life, but it was so mysterious and puzzling that they ascribed to it an endless number of names, and could only describe it through paradoxes. In psychological terms, it is an image of the Self, for the completeness or wholeness within us; in other words, for that never-to-be quite-realized mysterious inner value that embraces all parts of one’s personality, even the minor, unsightly and despised aspects. Therefore, to the lapis and the alchemical process always belongs the encounter with the dark sides of one’s own personality. The contributions in this volume, published on the occasion of the centennial of the Psychology Club Zurich (1916-2016), are committed to such wholeness. They encompasses a wide spectrum of Jungian psychology: dreams, fairy tales, alchemy, Kabbalah, the ancient Chinese Book of Changes (the I Ching), as well as Jung’s exploration of the Judeo-Christian Godimage, and include previously unpublished works of C.G. Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz.
