The article presents information on the book "Psychology and Alchemy, " by C.G. Jung. The first volume of the Bollingen edition of Jung's collected works is appropriately the study of Alchemy, long awaited in English translation as a major work of the author's mature period. It was Jung who recognized the symbolic language, whether in dream or in poetry, as directed towards the discovery and communication, not the concealment, of truths known to the unconscious mind. Jung's book con- sists of a detailed comparison between the symbolism of dreams during a process of integration that led one particular dreamer to a sense of enlightenment; and the parallel symbols and stages of aichemical transmutation.
