Thursday 18 February: C. G. Jung’s Myth of Life after Death

In this session Professor Roderick Main continues his discussion of myths that were important in the life and work of Jung.  Based on observation of his own and his patients’ dreams, as well as on hints from synchronistic experiences and the findings of parapsychology, Jung developed his own distinctive myth of life after death.  He acknowledged that his mythical conceptions proved nothing but considered it wholesome for individuals to express the thoughts about the afterlife that arise within them.

The text, “On Life after Death”, is taken from C. G. Jung’s Memories, Dreams, Reflections [1963], recorded and edited by A. Jaffé, trans. R & C. Winston (London: Fontana, 1983), pp. 330-358 [main reading: pp. 330-343]
