Views of the Animus
Taught by analysts and training candidates who draw on their clinical and theoretical work, this set presents a range of views on the animus question. With the current debate over the nature and content of gender, Jung’s concepts of the anima/animus are being re-examined and, in some cases, reformulated or even discarded as a means of conceptualizing psychological life. This set includes the following lectures:
