The Red Book

Cushing Library has recently acquired The Red Book, Carl Jung's magnum opus, featuring facsimiles of Jung's hand-lettered and illustrated pages. According to Holy Names psychology professor Dr. Perri Franskoviak, "Jung believed that every bit of the human psyche and lived experience was valuable, and could be used to promote growth and change.  Written after he and Freud went their separate ways, between 1913 and 1930, The Red Book provides us with a glimpse into the shadowy recesses and light filled corners of Jung's mind, his hopes and his despair, all of which, he would say, contributed to him becoming himself."

The Red Book is on display adjacent to the Research Help Desk. This folio-sized work of art contains dozens of beautiful and thought provoking illustrations. View more photos of The Red Book on the HNU Library flickr account.
