Commonly symbolized by the Fibonacci sequence, the Golden Number, or Phi, is the geometric ratio 1.618. Matila Ghyka’s classic reveals how understanding of the divine proportion is seen as a portal to discovering the hidden harmonies of the cosmos. In this collection of previously unpublished writings, Henry Corbin, one of the most important French philosophers and orientalists of the 20th century, examines the work of Carl Jung in relationship to the deep spiritual traditions of Eastern religion, the esoteric wisdom teachings of the Gnostic Sophia, the transformational symbolism of alchemy, and Sufi mysticism.

Publisher Marketing: Here is a satisfying vision of spirituality fully grown. Its approach to understanding self and world is necessarily as broad and deep as life itself.
