Time Rhythm and Repose.; Art and Imagination series

New York NY: Thames and Hudson, 1992. Second Edition. Softcover. Quarto. 96pp + 4pp of adverts. Illustrated. First published in 1978, this study of the meaning of time and its role in myth and spirituality is by Jung's life-long friend and co-worker, Marie-Louise von Franz. From the publisher: "The forms of time give shape to human experience. Traditional thought, from China to ancient Greece, embodies time not only in gods and goddesses but also in the various devices which measure and grasp it. Time as flux is apparent in the flow of grains in an hourglass; time as eternal return, in the circling aeons of the Indian and Mayan calendars or the tail-eating Serpent Ouroboros; time as a universal pattern of synchronous events, in the I Ching or the astrologers' intricate figure-work. The paradoxes inherent in these parallel ways of conceiving time reveal the mysterious coincidence of Opposites which underlies the cosmos." Extremities lightly chafed, price sticker on rear panel, pages moderately toned. Else a tight clean brightly illustrated VG+ copy. Item #69952
