The Black Books
The Foundation of the Works of C.G. Jung is pleased to announce the long awaited publication of C.G. Jung’s Black Books, a seven volume facsimile edition, accompanied by translation, introduction and notes. In Liber Novus, Jung’s so-called Red Book, he drew on dreams, visions and inner dialogues recorded in the Black Books during the years 1913 to 1916, but he continued to write in them for decades. The Black Books shed light on the elaboration of Jung’s personal cosmology and his attempts to embody insights from his self-investigation into his life and relationships. After the release of the material for publication by the Foundation of the Works of C.G. Jung in 2011 the edition was being prepared by the Philemon Foundation over the past years (editor Sonu Shamdasani, translators Martin Liebscher, John Peck and Sonu Shamdasani) and has successfully been brought to publication by the publisher W. W. Norton on 14 October 2020.
