Jung in the World: Jung’s Two Personalities & Their Impact on Jungian Thought & Training with Mark Saban
During our Holiday Giving Drive, we are presenting Jung in the World, a weekly series of interviews by Patricia Martin. In this series, she’ll be talking with people whose work intersects with Jung’s ideas to tell a more contemporary story about his enduring impact in a brave new world.
Mark Saban joins us to talk about the complexity of C. G. Jung’s own personality, and how that has shaped the way Analysts are trained today. They discuss:
- Jung’s life
- Inner and outer worlds
- Engagement with the world
- The archetypal vs the personal
- Jungian analysis
- The individuation of society
Mark Saban is a psychotherapist, analytical psychologist, and Jungian analyst in the UK. He is a senior analyst with the Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists and registered as a Jungian Analyst with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and the International Association for Analytical Psychology. He gained an M.A. at Oxford University and worked for twenty years as a performer/writer in theatre, TV, and film before training as an analytical psychologist. He completed his PhD at the University of Essex, where he also works as a lecturer in the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic studies. He sees clients in Oxford. He is author of Two Souls Alas: Carl Jung’s Two Personalities and the Making of Analytical Psychology.
Patricia Martin is a cultural analyst, consultant, and the author of three books on cultural trends. As a consultant, Martin has worked on teams at Discovery Communications, Dannon, Microsoft, Ms. Foundation for Women, Oracle, Unisys, The Art Institute of Chicago, and the New York Philharmonic, to name a few. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, USA Today, and Advertising Age. A blogger since 2002, Martin was a regular contributor to Huffington Post during its start-up years. She earned a B.A. in English and sociology from Michigan State University and an M.A. in Irish literature and culture from the University College Dublin. Later, she built a foundation for her cultural analysis by studying Jungian theory and depth psychology at the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago, where she is currently a Professional Affiliate and member of the program committee. In 2017, she harnessed artificial intelligence to uncover the effects of the internet on our sense of self. A book on her findings entitled Will the Future Like You? is due out later in 2021. Martin speaks worldwide about cultural changes that are shaping the future and the impact of the digital culture on the collective. A native of Detroit, Martin works in Chicago and lives in an ancient forest near the shores of Lake Michigan with her husband and countless deer.
