Catalogue Note

Jung and the mandela.  In this fine letter to a Berlin colleague, Jung comments on the mandela, which he considered to be the graphic representation of the self.  The letter was possibly written as an answer to a question which arose from his book The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga, which had just been published.

"I have never at all occupied myself with the so-called character.  My intentions and interests are also in no way directed towards characterology, but rather, and quite the opposite, towards typology.  Not in the sense, however, that I establish types in order to classify people accordingly, but rather to have a pattern according to which I can classify psychological material. 

"The drawing of my first female patient was very clearly a mandala, which I did not describe in entirety in my publication at the time because it seemed to me too absurd.  I only saw much later what it actually meant; though it corresponded in its entire arrangement and fundamental thouoghts to the central part of the River Map."
