The Black Books offer a unique portal into Jung’s mind and the origins of analytical psychology.

More than 10 years after the landmark publication of The Red Book, the most important unpublished work by C.G. Jung – The Black Books – is published.

In 1913, C.G. Jung started a self-experiment that he called his “confrontation with the unconscious”: an engagement with his fantasies which he charted in a series of notebooks referred to as The Black Books. The Black Books shed light on the elaboration of Jung’s personal cosmology, as well as his attempts to embody insights from his self-investigation into his life and relationships.

The Red Book drew on material recorded therein up to 1916 but Jung continued to write in them for decades. Magnificently presented, featuring a revelatory essay by Sonu Shamdasani, and both translated and facsimile versions of each notebook, The Black Books offers a unique portal into Jung’s mind and the origins of analytical psychology.
