This class explores Analytical Psychology from the perspective of three formative elements that contributed to the development of Jung’s theories. These elements are Jung’s personal life, the historical era in which Jung lived and worked, and the unconscious, non-historical in itself but formative of both personal and collective mythologies referred to as “biography” and “history”. Viewers will learn the major milestones in the development of Jungian psychology, how Jung’s articulation of these theoretical aspects relate to his historical milieu, and the influence of the unconscious on both of these sets of phenomena. Particular attention is paid to the role of the symbol as a means of understanding one’s relationship to life, time, and the unconscious.

- Delineate the contributions to Analytical Psychology that may be attributed to specific critical events and circumstances in Jung’s life.
