Jung, Jungians, & Homosexuality

This lecture examines the writings of Jung of the issues of homosexuality: his attitudes, his theories, and what post-Jungians have drawn from these writings. Using Jungian insights, Robert Hopcke proposes a new and more affirmative way of thinking about homosexuality which takes into account both contemporary psychological thought on sexual orientation and the sociopolitical critique launched by Gay Liberation.
