Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Reviewers say:

"Excellent book... Ribi has the feel of Gnosis and knows his sources, both ancient and modern...
There is no doubt that it was Jung, and not Hans Jonas, who rediscovered Gnosticism and its importance for modernity."

-- Gilles Quispel (Professor of Early Christian History, Utrecht University), The San Francisco Jung Institute Library Journal

"Most readers of Jung are aware that Gnosticism was important to his thought, but few of us have anything like Dr. Alfred Ribi's depth of knowledge of this extremely complex subject. ... This book makes a major contribution to our understanding of Jung's attraction to the Gnostics."

-- Lionel Corbett, Journal of Analytical Psychology, April 2014

Alfred Ribi entered the C. G. Jung Institute in 1964, after having completed his medical degree and several years as a research scientist. He trained with Marie-Louise von Franz, Jung's closest associate during the last decades of his life. For nearly fifty years Dr. Ribi has worked as an analyst, teacher, and examiner with the C. G. Jung Institute, Zurich; for several years he served as the Institute's Director of Studies. He is a past president of both the Foundation for Jungian Psychology and the Psychological Club of Zurich. Alfred Ribi is a recognized authority on Jungian psychology, alchemical tradition, and the ancient Gnostic writings found in the Nag Hammadi library.
