039 Huxley


He [Aldous Huxley] told me that he had been with D. H. Lawrence at the moment of his death and said that it had been an extraordinary experience. Lawrence told him that he could feel himself coming out of his own body, as though he were standing in a corner of the room looking at himself lying in bed. ~Miguel Serrano, Jung-Hesse A Friendship, Page 89

I had thorough- going conversations with Aldous Huxley and Thomas Mann about your stance in relation to today’s problematic world situation and its psychological aspects. Huxley has a disease of the eyes and therefore must see with spiritual eyes. ~Adolf Keller, Jung-Keller Correspondence, Page 151

In Saint Paul-de-Vence, France, in mid-July 1961, Hillman and Meier were among the participants, along with anthropologist Francis Huxley and his novelist uncle, Aldous Huxley.  ~Dick Russell, The Life and Ideas of James Hillman, Page 254


That is the mistake Aldous Huxley makes: he does not know that he is in the role of the “Zauberlehrling,” who learned from his master how to call the ghosts but did not know how to get rid of them again. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II to Victor White dated 10 April 1954.


When Huxley says that a symbol is uncoloured, this is an error. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 300.
