Philotalks: In Conversation with C.G Jung’s Red Book

The recently published Red Book (2009) is a personal account of psychiatrist C.G Jung’s battle with the unconscious. While he himself came to call this experience a mid-life crisis this talk will present Jung’s descent into his psyche as an opportunity to open up a space of conversation and of thought, the third space where the conscious and unconscious realm interact with one another. Topics that will be touched upon: the divided man, the quest for the soul, the process of individuation and the possibilities of a coming-together of two types of thought – what C.G Jung will call dreaming fantasy-thinking and directed thinking.

No previous knowledge is required.
