Following a series of apocalyptic visions in 1913, C.G. Jung engaged in protracted period of self-experimentation which took the form of provoking an extended series of waking fantasies, and then attempting to understand them psychologically. Fusing these materials with historical researches, he composed an unpublished illuminated manuscript in a self-styled prophetic form, called the Red Book (forthcoming, W.W. Norton), which forms the central work in his oeuvre. One of its critical themes is the significance of divine madness, which this talk opens up for discussion.
