Primary Instructor:


In this course we will explore the two great pillars upon which depth psychology, and hence our understanding of the workings of the human unconscious rests. Surprisingly, Freud’s great classic of 1900 is seldom actually read, with the result that many misconceptions about Freud’s actual research abound. This is the place where the modern concept of the unconscious as an object of rigorous research is first introduced, and Freud’s study of dreams yields powerful insight into the making of meaning in many different fields.

Jung’s autobiography of his own powerful inner experiences was long kept hidden by his family, and it has become available to the public only recently. Copiously illustrated like a medieval illuminated manuscript, it is also an artistic masterpiece of the highest order. Jung’s inner experiences were profoundly spiritual, and they provide insight into many different varieties of religious experience. The archetypes he uncovers are also key components of the anthropology of many different cultures.

Course Requirements:

One short paper (5-10 pages) on any aspect of Freud and Jung, and/or a bluebook final. If both, your final grade will be the higher of the two.
