Number and Time: Reflections Leading Toward a Unification of Depth Psychology and Physics
C. G. Jung's work in his later years suggested that the seemingly divergent sciences of psychology and modern physics might, in fact, be approaching a unified world model in which the dualism of matter and psyche would be resolved. Jung believed that the natural integers are the archetypal patterns that regulate the unitary realm of psyche and matter, and that number serves as a special instrument for man's becoming conscious of this unity.
Writen in a clear style and replete with illustrations which help make the mathematical ideas visible, Number and Time is a piece of original scholarship which introduces a view of how "mind" connects with "matter" at the most fundamental level.

No point to write a review--Marie von Franz was a true genius and was her time and is still this time ahead.
Her works are gifts to us.How fantastic this book is in trying to bring over to us that 'number' underpins as unit of order (quantitative and qualitative) our reality; and that number is THE most basic structural element around which the physical and our psychic (inner spiritual) world...turns and by which we can perceive it in an orderly fashion.
