ABOUT JUNG AND TAROT:
This highly innovative work presents a detailed and piercing interpetation of the Tarot in terms of Jungian psychology. Through analogy with the humanities, mythology and the graphic arts, Sallie Nichols helps each reader to a uniquely personal experience of the intriguing Tarot images. Viewing the Major Arcana as a map outlining the journey toward self-realization, the author offers many techniques for using the ards to gain practical insights along the way. (publisher)
"Sallie Nichols, in her profound investigation of Tarot, and her illuminated exegesis of its pattern as an authentic attempt at enlargement of the possibilities of human perceptions has . .. performed an immense service for analytical psychology. Her book enriches and helps us to understand the awesome responsibilities laid upon us by consciousness .... On top of it all, she has done this not in an arid fashion, but as an act of knowing derived from her own experience of Tarot and its strangely translucent lights. As a result her book not only lives but quickens life in whomever it touches." --from the Introduction by Laurens van der Post. Good. Item #6068
