'In Aion Jung took the archetype of the God-image (the Self) as his subject and demonstrated how it has revealed itself progressively in the course of the Christian aeon. It is an awesome work that makes great demands on the reader. The present book is an attempt to mitigate this difficulty and to make Aion somewhat more accessible.' --From the Author's Note
