Jung at Bollingen: The Beginning of the Tower


”¬†Words and paper did not seem real enough to me. To put my fantasies on solid footing, something more was needed. I had to achieve a kind of representation in stone of my innermost thoughts and of the knowledge I had acquired. Put another way, I had to make a confession of faith in stone.

That was the beginning of the tower, the house I built for myself at Bollingen.”


Carl Jung
