WARRIOR GODS: Aggression- Perspectives from Myth and Science

Our discussion on male and female aggression will start with archetypes likeMars, Pluto, Sekhmet, and the Valkyrie.  Bring your favorite archetypal image of aggression to discuss.  We’ll go over what current science says about aggression and then on to the question of why there is so much violence in the world today.  We will finish with how Donald Trump’s verbal attacks are changing the tone of our current presidential campaign.

Beverly Fourier has studied the scientific roots of male aggression as well as its depiction in myth and history.  She was born in Adams, Massachusetts, the birthplace of U.S. suffragette Susan B. Anthony.   Beverly has an undergraduate degree in languages from Boston University, a graduate degree in Education from Stanford University, and a graduate degree in Human Development from the George Washington University.  She lived in Warsaw, Poland, Tehran, Iran, and Moscow, USSR, as a U.S. Foreign Service spouse.


The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
