A propos de cet article

SPARSE UNDERLINING in red ink. Else, Very Good in Good DJ: The Book shows light wear to the extremities, but the corner tips are starting to wear through; barely discernible spine lean. The binding remains quite secure. The DJ shows fairly heavy rubbing; some loss to chipping and rubbing at extremities and a two-inch chip at the bottom of the rear panel; unclipped. A flawed copy, but one that is structurally sound and tightly bound in a heavily worn DJ. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. xxx, 289 pages. 32 page section of black & white illustrations. Translated and Edited by Gerald Chapple and James B. Lawson, in collaboration with J. Michael McKnight.First Edition in the USA [1984], unstated. Hardback with DJ. First Edition in the USA [1984], unstated. N° de réf. du libraire 46345

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :


"The book is as vital today as it was the year it was written, still unmatched for the eloquence of its recognition and celebration of this inspiration of Indian art." --From the foreword


This pioneering work opened C. G. Jung's eyes to the psychological and spiritual significance of the Indian mandala, and it remains the clearest introduction to the essence of Indian art and yoga for both the specialist and general reader. Heinrich Zimmer (1890-1943) was the first to identify the radical difference between Western classical and Indian art. His revolutionary approach to understanding the stylized, often sexual, sacred symbols of India was simply to take them on their own terms as techniques of spiritual transformation.
