Jung and Nietzsche
February 20, 1988 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm PST
This workshop will begin with a fairly extensive exposition of Nietzsche’s principal philosophical and psychological ideas (as probably less well known to most participants than those of Jung). Attention will then focus upon Thus Spoke Zarathustra, considered by Nietzsche and many others the chief jewel in his crown. Several of Jung’s lectures, complete with discussion by the original group, will be examined in detail, particular notice being paid to the central topic of the seminar, the relation of ego to Self. Finally, Personality Types will come in for discussion, with emphasis upon the Intuitive, a function highly developed in both Nietzsche and Jung.

James L. Jarrett, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Philosophy of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, began his teaching career in Utah as a high school English teacher. In addition to his long tenure at U.C. Berkeley, he also taught at Columbia University, Colorado College, and Western Washington College (now University), where he served as president for five years. On Fulbright and other leaves he taught briefly in Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Utah and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Michigan, always concentrating on philosophy with particular attention paid to aesthetics.
His publications include Language and Informal Logic, The Humanities and Humanistic Education, The Quest for Beauty, and The Teaching of Values: Caring and Appreciation. For the last forty years he has published many works in Jungian journals and lectured on Jungian topics in cities across the United States, including Little Rock (his birthplace), and often in London and Küsnacht-Zürich. He recently edited both the two-volume and abridged versions of Jung’s seminar on Nietzsche’s ZARATHUSTRA for Princeton University Press.
