9780812692785: The Allure of Gnosticism: The Gnostic Experience in Jungian Philosophy and Contemporary Culture

"This book is a concatenation of sparks of religious light.... Gnosticism is to be understood as the ongoing formulation of freshly imagined spirits, a logos of what we can know about those moments when the religious experience itself breaks through the veils of dogma to assert the psychological reality of a living redemptive godhead". -- John Beebe, Editor, Journal of Analytical Psychology

From the Back Cover:

Gnosticism or Gnosis is far more than an ancient religious movement with Christian, Jewish, and pagan followers. It is a living presence today, in many religions and also completely outside formal religion. The Allure of Gnosticism is a collection of 16 outstanding essays, illuminating Gnosticism in its relation to such issues as Jungian thought, the nature of evil, the place of the feminine, communism and fascism, existentialism, Christian scriptures, Kafka, and Buddhism.

Review:

Gnosticism is far more than an ancient Christian and Jewish heresy. It arises in many religions as the belief in a radical dualism both in human beings and the cosmos: immateriality is perceived as good and matter as evil. Gnosticism often surfaces as a theme in contemporary cultural and psychological thought _ especially in the works of C. G. Jung. The Allure of Gnosticism: The Gnostic Experience in Jungian Psychology and Contemporary Culture is a collection of sixteen essays illuminating gnosticism in its relation to such issues as Jungian thought, the nature of evil, the place of the feminine, communism and fascism, existentialism, Christian scriptures, and Buddhism. The works of Kafka and T. S. Eliot are examined in detail. -- Midwest Book Review

Book Description Open Court Publishing Co ,U.S., United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 214 x 140 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Gnosticism is far more than an ancient Christian and Jewish heresy. It arises in many religions as the belief in a radical dualism both in human beings and the cosmos: immateriality is perceived as good and matter as evil. In the modern age, Gnosticism is very much alive, focused on the belief that human beings are alienated from their true selves. Modern Gnosticism continues to espouse a radical dualism, but this can take a psychological, social and political, rather than a metaphysical form. Among the writers and thinkers of the last two centuries who can be labelled Gnostics are: Hegel, Blake, Goethe, Schelling, Emerson, Melville, Byron, Yeats, Hesse and Toynbee. This text is a collection of 16 essays illuminating Gnosticism in its relation to such issues as Jungian thought, the nature of evil, the place of the feminine, communism and fascism, existentialism, Christian scriptures, Kafka and Buddhism.
