Jung conducted an exhaustive study of the ancient practice of alchemy and believed alchemists experienced an inner transformation while exploring the mysterious chemical substances that they studied.
Jung’s understanding of the unconscious as expressed through the imagery and texts of the alchemists has far-reaching implications for modern people.
For Jung, ancient alchemical texts provide us with a wealth of symbolic insight into the human mind and human behaviors that continue to be vitally relevant today.
