The Emerald Tablet: The worldview of Alchemy and Jung’s psychology

Jungian psychology contains a worldview which offers a healing balance to our one-sided culture. The image of the Emerald Tablet, one of the most influential texts in alchemy, is a symbolic representation of the main concepts of Hermeticism, which mirrors Jung’s understanding of the structure and dynamics of the psyche. This seminar will be an in-depth exploration of the symbolic representation of The Emerald Tablet by Matthäus Merian, a Swiss-born artist and engraver (22 September 1593 – 19 June 1650), which incorporates all the truths contained in the Emerald tablet. I will describe how this vision corresponds to the main concepts of Jung’s psychology, and how this knowledge assists with dream interpretation.
