Book: Red Book, Middle Way

Chapter: Complaints of the Dead

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.40410


The role of the dead is an especially mysterious aspect of the Red Book, depending on whether we take their ‘dead’ status literally or treat them as standing for the living. However, Jung’s struggle with what he feels the ‘dead’ require of him seem to require a Middle Way response as much as the rest of the book does.
