Idealization and Evil: Perspectives from Jungian Psychoanalysis

What is happening when we so easily give away both our power and responsibility to others? Dr. Moore describes and analyzes the phenomena which we call idealizing transferences and projections. Dr. Moore discusses the role of idealization in the normal development of the self, and examines the nature and dynamics of pathological idealization. Attention is given to psychological, political, and spiritual implications of this phenomenon. Both lecture and experiential exercise are included.
