Jung at Heart: The Problem of Evil
October 6 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pmPrepaid Cost: $75
This lecture will discuss the sources of evil from the point of view of both individual and social psychology. We will compare traditional religious views of evil with psychological approaches. Drawing from both psychoanalytic and Jungian perspectives, we will examine some of the developmental factors which predispose an individual towards evil. Our discussion will include Jung’s notion of the dark side of the Self, or archetypal evil, and its relationship to the personal shadow.
The presenter suggests reading “Understanding Evil.”
