World Soul, American Culture and the “Trump” Phenomenon-CANCELLED
April 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $30 – $35
Presented by Ronald Schenk , M.S.W., Ph.D.
This presentation will elaborate on the concept of soul from the alchemical standpoint of anima mundi or world soul, in particular, the cultural soul of America, and how it relates it to the new science of complexity. Rather than analyzing a single individual or subject, we will examine some of the ways in which phenomena emerge from the interaction of multiple systems. Our focus will be on the contemporary phenomenon of “Trump” in the American political psyche as an autonomous symbolic image which from the interaction of multiple agencies, and suggests a more complex notion of a cultural soul with a life of its own which lies beyond political rhetoric.
