Phyllis La Plante

Jung was 75 when Aion was published.  He promises that understanding this volume “would do much to remedy our philosophic disorientation.”  He is prophetic in warning of the danger to the individual and to the collective when the problem of the opposites is left unresolved.  Jung collects and discusses a wealth of material ranging from Christian and fish symbolism through Gnosticism and alchemy.  This volume contains his most cogent description of the structure of the psyche.

            We will mine Aion for philosophical insight as we examine Jungian theory, and for psychological benefit as we ground symbolic material in personal experience.  For a special treat, we will attempt to determine the advent of the Aquarian Age and what it would mean to become a Water Bearer.


Suggested reading for the initial class: first 22 pages
