March 22, 1989: Anthony Stevens in Eugene

Lecture: This lecture will focus upon the contemporary relevance of Jung’s archetypal hypothesis, including its links with ethology and sociobiology as well as mythology and psychiatry. Based on Dr. Steven’s book, Archetypes: A Natural History of the Self, this lecture received an enthusiastic ovation when given for the first time at a convocation at Willamette University last November.
