Ways of Being Inferior
January 19, 2002 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
After a quick review of the essentials of Jung’s typology, we will look at his emphasis upon the opposites and his insistence upon the inevitability of our strongest function being directly opposed to our weakest function. This workshop will be a getting down to “cases,” both Dr. Jarrett’s and those of participants, confessing to those more interesting but somewhat regrettable traits in ourselves and others, in order to see whether these traits can be accommodated within the Jungian personality theory.

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.This event has passed.
