Man and his symbols (Carl G. Jung)

Man and his symbols (Carl G. Jung)

I am a huge fan of the psychology behind symbols. Maybe it is because I am an illustrator and I worked on different projects that focused a lot on symbolic meanings.

I already read a few books about symbols and their meanings, but "Man and his symbols" goes even further. Carl G. Jung researches with a psychological perspective how symbols are created and how it does have an effect on our society and every individual. It is interesting for how long several topics are having an impact on humankind. 

This book is separated into these sections:

I didn't read the entire book yet because there are still a lot of other research on my plate right now. But I read a few passages of text. This book helped me so far to not just knowing what a certain symbol means, but also to understand why we connect symbols to certain emotions and stories. I always want to understand the whole truth called "the why" and not just "the what". I think this helps me to understand concepts and artwork better and to make further connections.

Further information: This book might be outdated in some perspectives because it is written around 1964. But I think it still has valuable conclusions and is still worth it to check out.
