Book: Red Book, Middle Way

Chapter: Gnostic versus Agnostic

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.40411


Jung’s ‘Seven Sermons to the Dead’ have a markedly different approach to the rest of the Red Book, which arguably suggests conflict in Jung’s own experience. I argue that on the whole the Seven Sermons offer a metaphysical approach to interpreting human experience that is basically in conflict with the Middle Way as Jung presents it in the rest of the book. This also reflects wider conflicts in Jung’s work as a whole.
