The introduction to this episode is an interview with George Hogenson regarding our upcoming event Opera with an Analyst: Wagner’s Götterdämmerung. This day-long event, at the Lyric Opera of Chicago on April 11th, includes Dr. Hogenson’s presentation on the archetypal dimensions of Wagner’s Götterdämmerung , Colin Ure’s presentation on its musical dynamics, followed by the opera itself. A limited number of tickets are available on our website. If you already have a ticket to the opera, you can also register for the talk only.
As we enter a new decade, I want to again share the recording of the program “The Fate of Depth Psychology in the New Millenium”, held in 1998. It includes introductory remarks by June Singer and a lengthy discussion with panel and audience members. From the original CD jacket:
“As we approach the year 2000, humanity finds itself, as it always will, wrestling with the eternal questions of the meaning of existence and their relationship to spirit and matter. Given the direction of contemporary brain research and science, the growing psychopharmacological approach to mental and emotional disorders, the emergence of managed care, and the economics of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, we have to wonder what challenges depth psychology will face in the years ahead.
This program takes up this critical question as seven Jungian analysts share their individual visions of the fate that awaits depth psychology in the new millennium. The panel members each present a brief synopsis of his/her vision and then engage with the audience in a lively discussion of their ideas, reactions, and intuitions.”
June Singer, PhD was a practicing psychoanalyst in the Chicago area and Tennessee for almost 50 years. She also taught at the University of Chicago, in addition to lecturing as a psychologist throughout the world. She is the author of many books, including Modern Woman in Search of Soul: A Jungian Guide to the Visible and Invisible Worlds, Androgyny: The Opposites Within, The Unholy Bible: Blake, Jung, and the Collective Unconscious, and Boundaries of the Soul: The Practice of Jung’s Psychology.
