In tribute to the 50th Anniversary of Jung’s death (June 6, 1961), Dr. Hoeller will discuss in depth the various layers of meaning in this work known as his Liber Novus, published in October of 2009. He will evaluate the influence of this work on Jung’s psychological works, his books on alchemy and the psychological types, and his prophetic treatise Aion. He will refer to Jung’s visionary revelations during his critical illness in 1944. Dr. Hoeller views Jung also as a modern gnostic prophet whose message is beginning to emerge only at this time.
