Jung, Cosmology and the Transformation of the Modern Self
November 12, 2005 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PST
On Saturday, we will deepen this analysis while also addressing three overlapping topics: the nature of archetypes as that concept has evolved from Plato to Jung and beyond; Jung’s concept of synchronicity, which challenged the disenchanted world view and became a major focus of his own psychospiritual practice; and the categories of “masculine” and “feminine,” taking into account the more complex nature of those terms and of the human psyche than the simple classical polarity suggested.
