This week Prof. Roderick Main introduces a discussion of “Myth, ecstasy, and objective cognition: the mystical visions of C. G. Jung”.
In this session, we shall look at the mystical visions C. G. Jung describes in Chapter X of Memories, Dreams, Reflections ( recorded and edited by A. Jaffé, trans. R & C. Winston, London: Fontana, 1983, pp. 289-298), paying particular attention to his use of Jewish/Kabbalistic, Christian, and ancient Greek myths of sacred marriage to articulate his experiences of ecstatic union. We shall also consider the claims he makes for a form of ‘objective cognition’ beyond emotional involvement. See our poster: P-Mystical Visions
