It is, though, a supurb reference book of all things Jungian, Freudian, archtypal, tantric, and post-modern.

For those of you who appreciate and respect the power of the symbols that surround us in our daily lives, this is the tome for you. Drawing from a variety of traditions, it is nearly exhaustive in scope, yet oddly refreshing in its occasional irreverence towards its own chosen subject matt This isn't the kind of book you just dive into on page one, and plow through in a sequential manner.

Phenomenal reference book on the archetypal and historical symbolism of a huge variety of objects that, while seemingly mundane, reach deep into the origin myths and the deep spiritual aspects of human psychology and symbolic meaning. I originally picked this up as a christmas present for a friend and never mailed it, as I simply found it too fascinating to give up.

Guess I just have to get another copy for this christmas. Just Definitely not a "reading" book. Just open it up to any page and start reading. Furthermore, the visual illustrations for the enormous volume of entries is as varied and profoundly researched as the information itself—a huge collection of regional, historical and contemporary examples of these symbols make this book a must have for anyone interested in Jungian concepts of collective symbolism, as well as anyone working in the visual arts.

It starts with the most fundamental and ancient symbols like the Universal egg and expands further towards modernity passing through the symbolism of the plant world, the animal kingdom, and ultimately, our own artificial creations.

It's a fascinating collection of illustrated essays that would be of interest to anybody.

I can still think of symbols I wish were included, but this is a book I know I'll turn to again and again for that extra nudge of insight.

It covers all manner of symbols, from the highly abstract like darkness to the natural world pine, big cats, fog to human actions and inventions subways, weaving to the mythical and spiritual witches, Ganesha.

For each symbol there's a short essay and a few images, drawn from all manner of cultures, time periods, and sources. Symbols are explained with religion, pop culture, poetry, science, alchemy, psychoanalysis, and probably a few other subjects.

The Book of Symbols

I love this book it has opened my mind wide and aware. Mar 20, Ricche Khosasi rated it really liked it Shelves: Een bijzonder mooi uitgevoerd boek - je verwacht niets anders van Taschen. Meer een blader dan een leesboek, ook gebruikelijk bij deze uitgeverij.

Wat ik waardeer aan dit boek, is dat het team "beeld" als uitgangspunt heeft genomen, en niet het "symbool". Er is daardoor ook ruimte voor wat je in eerste instantie niet als een symbool zou zien, zoals "auto".The text is revealing and yet open-ended enough to make it a remarkably valuable resource, not as a dream interpretation book, but one that offers hints as to what one might have meant when one dreamed or imagined that.

Ami Ronnberg. For example, if you go to ARAS Online and select "snake", you will get the following "cultural time line" which displays by culture and age every image in the collection related to "snake": The Book of Symbols follows this principle of using images from around the world and every era to explore a symbol.
