The Italian artist Angelo Troilo share with us about his most recent reading, in adidtion to finding keywords (inspiration) in life, he will also search from books to let us truly understand “the art of life, the life of the art”.
Man and His Symbols by Carl G. Jung is a guidebook to changing your life by harnessing the power of dreams that owes its existence to one of the author’s own dreams.
The great psychologist dreamed that his work was understood by a wide public, rather than just by psychiatrists, and therefore he agreed to write and edit this fascinating book. Here, Jung examines the full world of the unconscious, whose language he believed to be the symbols constantly revealed in dreams. Convinced that dreams offer practical advice, sent from the unconscious to the conscious self, Jung felt that self-understanding would lead to a full and productive life. Thus, the reader will gain new insights into himself from this thoughtful volume, which also illustrates symbols throughout history. Completed just before his death by Jung and his associates, it is clearly addressed to the general reader.
The author uses five papers by five distinguished psychologists to supplement the subconscious, ancient myths, and personalization, while cynicism is not a traditional self-help book. There is no “do X in order to solve Y”, however, if you are in a lonely place, in a pensive mood, hold this book with your own hands, and be hopelessly calmed down with burning worry.
