Emotions and the Archetypal Imagination
May 14, 2004 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PDT
This lecture will look at the nature of the emotions as they have evolved and continue to develop, from the primal, untransformed depths toward the highest values of human culture. The tendency in recent decades toward deconstruction of values may potentiate a compensatory development as individuals in many walks of life seek a differentiated experience of affects and their symbolic expression, shaped by eternal ideals that appear to be wired into the psyche. Lecture includes slides to illustrate.
