Publisher's Synopsis
Edinger, who transited July 17, 1998, considered Anatomy of the Psyche his “most substantial, sustained and fully organized contribution.”

Edinger goes through seven alchemical operations in a particular order:
  1. Calcinatio 
  2. Solutio 
  3. Coagulatio 
  4. Sublimatio
  5. Mortificatio
  6. Separatio
  7. Coniunctio

"Edinger has greatly enriched my understanding of psychology through the avenue of alchemy. No other contribution has been as helpful as this for revealing, in a word, the anatomy of the psyche and how it applies to where one is in his or her process. This is a significant amplification and extension of Jung's work. Two hundred years from now, it will still be a useful handbook and an inspiring aid to those who care about individuation."         ~Psychological Perspectives

"Heaven is the abode of eternal Platonic forms, the universals, the archetypal images."
