Introduction to Jung’s Black Books

The IVAP/C.G. Jung Vereniging, the Jungiaans Instituut – Rump Academie voor Dieptepsychologie, and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam have the great pleasure of inviting you, in collaboration with the Steering Committee Jungiana.nl, to participate in:

A short introduction to Carl Gustav Jung’s fascinating Black Books, by its famous translator and editor, UCL professor Sonu Shamdasani, to mark their recent publication.

These intimate personal notes by Jung yield a stunning insight into his psyche and development, and have remained hidden from the public eye for much too long.

Approximately 1 hour introduction by Prof Shamdasani followed by 1 hour moderated Q&A.


Take this opportunity to engage in conversation with Prof.dr Shamdasani on the topic of The Black Books.

You may also submit your questions ahead of time via jungianscholars@gmail.com

The technique for this unique online session is provided by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.


Sonu Shamdasani (born 1962) is a London-based author, editor, and professor at University College London. His writings focus on Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), and cover the history of psychiatry and psychology from the mid-nineteenth century to current times. Shamdasani also edited for its initial publication another major work by Jung: The Red Book, which is based on The Black Books.
