"This volume is a great book, and it offers something of a prelude to Jung's monumental Psychology and Alchemy, Mysterium Coniunctionis and Aion. It is a book that should be read slowly . . . to absorb its many meanings."--M.D. Medical Newsmagazine
From the Back Cover
This collection of five essays, with numerous illustrations, traces his developing interest in alchemy from 1929 on and may be read both as a useful introduction and as a valuable supplement to his longer works on the subject.

"Misled by the devil, (Faust) contemptuously turns his back on science and, carried away by Eastern occultism, takes over yoga practices word for word and becomes a pitiable imitator. (Theosophy is our best example of this.)" (Pg. 7)
"The lack of comprehension goes so far that even learned sinologists have not understood the practical use of the I Ching and consider the book to be nor more than a collection of abstruse magic spells." (Pg. 10)
"Our time has committed a fatal error; we believe we can criticize the facts of religion intellectually. Like Laplace we think God is a hypothesis that can be subjected to intellectual treatment, to be affirmed or denied. We completely forget that the reason mankind believes in the 'daemon' has nothing whatever to do with external factors, but is simply due to a naive awareness of the tremendous inner effect of autonomous fragmentary systems." (Pg. 36)
"My admiration for the great philosophers of the East is as genuine as my attitude towards their metaphysics is irreverent." (Pg. 50)
"Science and technology have indeed conquered the world, but whether the psyche has gained anything is another matter." (Pg. 128)
"Curiously enough, I have critics who think that I of all people want to replace the living psyche by intellectual concepts. I do not understand how they have managed to overlook the fact that my concepts are based on empirical findings and are nothing but names for certain areas of experience." (Pg. 328)
