Not available for almost a decade, Marcus Aurelius Press is pleased to announce the reissue of this important work by historian and author of art, Dr. Robert Wang.
The Jungian tarot deck, first published in 1988, aims to be a visual introduction to Jungian philosophy. The key is the archetypal image found through creative visualization or, as Jung called it, "active imagination." It is a process that can, theoretically, lead to the discovery of a true Inner Self. This creative visualization is at the heart of all the mystical and religious systems, from those of the ancient world, to the spiritual exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, Hermeticism and Rosicrucianism, alchemy and the remarkably creative occult exercises of the nineteenth century.
One of the main purposes of this paper is to demonstrate parallels between Jungian philosophy and the Hermetic Kabbalah, a system that has been essential to Western mysticism since the Italian Renaissance that Wang explored in depth in the Qabbalistic Tarot. Wang believes that Jung's ideas about the regressions from the personal to the collective are consistent with the Kabbalistic method of working backward from the lowest level of the Tree of Life (the material condition), through the higher levels that they symbolize not only the enlightened Being, but also a condition of not being that transcends all consciousness, personal or collective.
