CANCELED: Jung’s Red Book for Our Time:
Searching for Soul under Postmodern Conditions
Eranos and Monte Verità, Ascona (Switzerland)
April 23–26, 2020
What can we take from The Red Book for our times, individually and collectively? This is the question that will be addressed by the speakers at this symposium of the Eranos Foundation. Without guidance by a grand-narrative or collective myth, we now live in a historical phase of global volatility and deep uncertainty about the future. A similar perception was in the air when C. G. Jung worked on his Red Book. In response, Jung embarked on an inner journey and created a work that reflects his discovery of meaning in a personal myth, by the means of the individuation process. His approach to the problems presented by the “spirit of the times” also has broad cultural significance. The Red Book – as a precious link on the aurea catena – has potential for becoming a guide for people living under the postmodern conditions of the 21st century. This will be explored by the speakers and participants in this symposium.
