Answer to Job

C. G. Jung

Arguably Jung’s most controversial and emotional work, Answer to Job might also be appropriately titled “Confrontation with the God-Image.” But while it is, in many respects, a book rooted in Jung’s spiritual woundedness, it is also a beautiful book — in some ways, a paean to the whole of creation, why we are here, and why life matters.

I suggest this book to Imaginalia visitors because it might be understood, in some respects, as a foundation for a depth psychological ethic, which, in turn, fosters the development of imaginal ethics. Answer to Job may also appeal to readers who are wrestling with their own spiritual wounds.
