The book Aion by Carl Gustav Jung (1865–1961) is among the number of major late works by the author and develops the range of problems that were worked out in his collection of essays Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious. Based upon the wide explication of christian, gnostic and alchemic symbolics, the author explains the archetype of psychical integrity, the self, historically connecting it with the figure of Christ that, according to his opinion, is the symbol of the all-encompassing integrity during the christian Eon that is synchronic to the Great month of Pisces. Basic reason of such explanation is an attempt to help a modern man to cope with his unrootedness and world view disorientation that constantly carry a threat of utopian psychoses. Th e book will be interesting not only for psychologists and psychotherapists but also for philosophers, religious scholars, anthropologists, art critics as well as all who aims to understand the bases of our existance, oft en hidden from view.
