The Seven Sermons To The Dead
The Seven Sermons To The Dead was a text written in 1917 by the
Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jungand ascribed to the gnosticteacher Basilides. The text speaks cryptically about the Pleroma, the Abraxasand the soul; therein, Jung also discusses his principle of Individuality and warns of the mystical tendency to 'unite' with God, which he interpets as a dangerous psychological desire to identify with the unconscious.The text was written by Jung in a time of difficulty around his break with Freud, which stemmed primarily from their differing concepts of the unconscious (see ).
A commentary upon the work was written by the
gnostic bishop Stephan A. Hoeller[Stephan A. Hoeller, "The Gnostic Jung and the Seven Sermons to the Dead", Quest Books; 1st ed. 1989, ISBN-10: 083560568X] .
