About the Author

Dale Mathers is a member of the Association of Jungian Analysts, and a psychiatrist and humanistic psychotherapist. He teaches analytical psychology in the UK and Europe and is in private practice in South London.


"A unique, coherent and multi-faceted volume. For those who find the Jungian use of alchemy bewildering, the book brings clarity and much-needed explanation. For those already into alchemy, the sheer range of topics covered and the vigour of the writing - from philosophy of science to religious experience to clinical practice - will make for an indispensable resource. Now that the intellectual and cultural climate in the West demonstrates the shifting, relative and mutable nature of things like science, bodies, sexualities, health and illness, we are justified in asking, together with these authors: Why does anyone need to be afraid of alchemy?" - Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex
