Imagining Child Development: Contributions of Jung, Fordham, and Neumann

Developmental theories generally constrain the phenomena of infant and child psychology to multiple variations on a one-dimensional theme: the timeline.  In sharp contrast to these theories is the work of Jung, Fordham and Neumann, each of whom considered early development as a manifestation in space/time of the growing differentiation and harmonization of personal and collective aspects of psyche, originating from, guided by, converging toward and happening within the Self.  This class will consider closely the writings of Jung, Fordham and Neumann as they pertain to early development in particular, and to the overall development of the human person across the life span.
