C. G. Jung and Hermann Hesse: a record of two friendships - Miguel Serrano - Google книги
Dec 06, Andrew Wright rated it it was amazing. Jan 20, Michael Davis rated it really liked it. Fascinating stuff, and found at a time when I was just discovering both. Lots of insight into these two great minds. Nov 20, Dara Paprock rated it it was amazing. The book had so much appeal.. Intimate peek into thoughts and what is shared. It is the book of my dreams. I've read almost all the translated work of Hermann Hesse and available works of Carl Jung.
Carl Jung has influenced my life and work on many levels. These two are legends and each time I re-read their books I always realize something more about self. Miguel Serrano has explored these two personalities with such truth that also explains his extent of love and respect for them and their deep influence in his life. He put forth the person behind the names and their two It is the book of my dreams. He put forth the person behind the names and their two spectacular work that would have never been known otherwise. The meetings and interviews have questions that answer to the queries of all those who have same love and regard for them but were not able to meet them.
A Must Read In such thinking, Serrano finds evidence of an afterlife. The conversations with Jung reveal a deeply non-scientific, mystical or an overly active imagination side. Jung had a proclivity for interpreting everyday signs in terms of grand iose , universal meanings and as revelations from the beyond.
Death is the single, most profound physical event that activates such intense fear feelings. Oct 02, Rhonda rated it really liked it Shelves: history , psychology , theology , sociology , poetry. I have difficulty understanding how this book escaped my attention for so long, but I am deeply grateful for the circumstances which recommended it to me.

One ought to read this book, I think, not as if it were a kind of camera which captured the thoughts of two great men of quite unique ideas, but as a kind of transcendental interpretation of ideas in themselves, not perhaps thoroughly vetted, but ideas put into motion in the hope that others might continue with them and bring them to fruition. One ought to read this book, I think, not as if it were a kind of camera which captured the thoughts of two great men of quite unique ideas, but as a kind of transcendental interpretation of ideas in themselves, not perhaps thoroughly vetted, but ideas put into motion in the hope that others might continue with them and bring them to fruition Do not be disappointed, in other words, when you read this and find that there are three minds hard at work, rather than just two, from which the entire work benefits.
I will have more to say when I finish this. One of the things which impressed me was how close the thinking was between Jung and Hesse. It is sad that Hesse's reputation in English speaking countries was maligned by the various cults which adopted him as their model for freedom.
It was, in fact, a complete misreading of Hesse who was never deeply appreciated for his psychological thought. On the other hand, I was surprised at how open Jung was with his sharing of spiritual thought, that which was not complete but a lifelong venture. One may read hints of this in his books, but to listen to him speak candidly concerning his explorations into human limits of existence shows him in a light which the world never saw. It is difficult to understand how Serrano would not be an interventionist into this, a spy, if you will, into the inner workings of each of their lives, but instead he becomes part of the process by which great ideas are revealed to us.
It is the best, by far, example of presenting ideas and even the ways in which ideas are explored by two great men along with providing a kind of catalyst to the very existence of these lofty investigations. I recommend this book to readers of philosophy who wish to gain insight on the methods of thinking in their own lives.

Lamentablemente no hay forma de escapar de las ideas absurdas de Serrano, que no solo lo persiguen sino que incluso llegan a contaminar sus obras. Desafortunadamente, a penas Serrano comienza a hablar de Jung, el libro empeora.

This pure archetype would be the authentic image of the god which is within ourselves and which has been sunk for so long, like Atlantis, under the waters of consciousness.
This Abraxas would also come to mean Total Man.
These are contemplation and action. One day, however, they must begin to fuse You should let yourself be carried away, like the clouds in the sky. You shouldn't resist. God exists in your destiny as much as he does in these mountains and in that lake. It is very difficult to understand this, because man is moving further and further away from his nature, and also from himself When you are close to nature you can hear the voice of God. The act of dying is like falling into Jung's Collective Unconscious, and from there you return to form, to pure form.
They rarely express the true meaning; in fact they ten to hide it. If you can live in fantasy, then you don't need religion, since with fantasy you can understand that after death, man is reincorporated in the Universe. Once again I will say that it is not important to know whether there is something beyond this life. What counts is having done the right sort of work; if that is right, then everything else will be right.
The Universe, or Nature, is for me what God is for others.
It is wrong to think that Nature is the enemy of man, something to be conquered. Rather, we should look upon Nature as a mother, and should peaceably surrender ourselves to it. If we take that attitude, we will simply feel that we are returning to the Universe as all others things do, all animals and plants. We are just infinitesimal parts of the Whole. It is absurd to rebel; we must deliver ourselves up to the great current.
Tired of living too long, tired of dying too long, its song is hard and tenacious; it sounds arrogant, hiding the fear. One more summer. Another long winter.
C.G. Jung and Hermann Hesse: a record of two friendships
He would never have been able to remember them or to record them, or even to consider them as having an existence at all In order to remember, one must have a conscious spectator, who is the Self or the conscious being. So far, I have found no stable or definite centre in the unconscious and I don't believe such a centre exists.
I believe that the thing which I call the Self is an ideal centre, equidistant to the maximum natural expression of individuality, in a state of fulfillment or totality. As nature aspires to express itself, so does man, and the Self is that dream of totality.
It is therefore an ideal centre, something created. A far more satisfactory approach would be to consider man as a whole instead of considering his various parts. What is needed is to call a halt to the fatal dissociation that exists between man's higher and lower being; instead, we must unite conscious man with primitive man.
So man should be man.
But to know what man is, one must follow nature and go on alone, admitting the importance of the unexpected. Seller Inventory GOR Condition: Fair.
