Chapter Summary

This chapter dealing with &t;Basilides&t; is in French with an additional note in English. In "Gnostic Symbols of the Self," Collected Works 9, Carl Gustav Jung quotes the passage from the Valentinian Marc the Magus that God is unconscious and states that this godhead symbolizes the unconscious in its primordial, undifferentiated state; the lower demiurge symbolizes the ego, which thinks that there is nothing beyond it; the Anthropos, identified with Christ, is a symbol of the Self. Winrich A. Löhr, Basilides und seine Schule, Tübingen 1996, has denied that Hippolytus transmits the authentic doctrine of Basilides (130 Alexandria), whose fragments prove him to be a talented thinker.
