Dictionnaire des symboles : mythes, rêves, coutumes, gestes, formes, figures, couleurs, nombres by Jean Chevalier ( Book )
168 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Avec l'aide de quinze collaborateurs spécialisés, un bilan en 1600 articles thématiques qu'explicitent déjà les sous-titres. Chaque mot étudié, depuis Abeille jusqu'à Zodiaque, l'est de façon polyvalente à partir de son étymologie tant sémantique que mentale avec ses résonances culturelles ou morales. Les termes astérisqués sont des renvois qui permettent une lecture vraiment encyclopédique (au sens grec du mot). Une indication abréviée à la fin des articles dirige vers une bibliographie considérable qui se retrouve en conclusion. Ouvrage référentiel de première valeur dont la préface est un chef-d'oeuvre. Cette édition nouvelle pour la collection présente a cependant été revue et si certaines notices ont été abrégées, d'autres se sont ajoutées afin d'équilibrer la première publication de 1969
A dictionary of symbols by Jean Chevalier ( Book )
25 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This remarkable and wide-ranging book is an inventory of symbols and the symbolic imagination. The editors and their fifteen contributors are drawn from a variety of scholarly backgrounds-including anthropology, ethnology, psychotherapy and art history. This diversity of approach is responsible for the book's unique character, a reflection of the multiplicity of symbols and signs and the phenomenal range of possible interpretations they offer. This book draws together folklore, literary and artistic sources, and focuses on the symbolic dimension of every colour, number, sound, gesture, expression or character trait that has benefitted from symbolic interpretation. The conscious and unconscious minds are explored, desire and dreams are treated alongside the known and the chronicled. Extraordinary in its range and eclecticism, this dictionary was originally published in French as the Dictionnaire des Symboles, and it is regarded as the standard work on the subject
