IBNA- The book ‘Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey’ by Sallie Nichols, the American specialist of Karl Gustav Jung has been translated into Persian and will be unveiled on Thursday in Tehran.
According to IBNA correspondent, the book has been translated by Azadeh Kamyar and released by Hirmand publishing in Tehran. Introduction on ‘Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey’ reads: “The book presents a piercing interpretation of the tarot in terms of Jungian psychology.
Through analogy with the humanities, mythology and the graphic arts, the significance of the cards is related to personal growth and individuation. The major arcana becomes a map of life, and the hero's journey becomes something that each individual can relate to the symbolism of the cards and therefore to the personal life.
"Sallie Nichols, in her 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.”
