In the original Star Wars trilogy when faced with a challenging situation, several characters are moved to say: “I’ve got a bad feeling about this!” In our own age the same can be said for many of us as we are confronted with the deadly horrible realities of our times, from the pandemic now in its third year, the life-threatening consequences of climate change, the senseless brutal killing of Ukrainians, the mass shootings in our own country, and the new threats to women’s rights, to name just a few. How do we face such issues, especially as Jung has pointed out that the feeling function is the least developed psychological function in our culture? How do we honor feelings and the feeling function in such troubled times?
- Describe events that are disturbing the psychological equilibrium of people in our culture.
- Describe the dilemmas individuals endure facing ongoing cultural trauma.
- Describe the evolution in the understanding and development of the feeling function in Jungian psychology.
