Although this book is exactly what the title suggests, a treatise on architecture written during the time of Augustus Caesar, it is a very important source work for the neo-Platonic revival of sacred architecture, and is quite esoteric in its own right. [?]

Von Franz, Marie-Louise
Number and Time
Northwestern University Press, 1974
ISBN 0-8101-0532-2

Keywords:
patterns, religion, number symbolism, occultism

Comment:
Widely regarded as the most lucid interpreter of the theories of Carl Jung, von Franz expands on his idea that the natural numbers are archetypes which regulate the unitary realm of psyche and matter. Includes explorations of the psychological aspects of mathematics, a discussion of number as a psychological energy pattern and a description of mandalas as structures of the unconscious in mathematically symmetrical patterns similar to models in physical science.
