Art and the Creative Unconscious

by Jim
(Palm Springs, CA, USA)

I was wondering if anyone might be able to comment on what seems to me to be a misprint in my copy of Erich Neumann's Art and the Creative Unconscious. In my copy (published by Princeton Univ. Press in 1971--though my copy is from the 3rd printing of 1974--ISBN 0-691-01773-5),

On p. 154 appears the sentence, "Religion and ritual, festival and custom, initiation and experience of destiny, form a whole; they blind the individual to the culture of the collectivity..."

I was thinking, though, that instead of "BLIND the individual to the culture..." it maybe should be "BIND" the individual..." I don't have access to the original German text to see if that is indeed the case. Maybe someone out there might be able to help me get to the bottom of this. Thanks!
