Module description

Building on the theoretical foundation in analytical psychology provided in year one (PA209), this module seeks to chart and critically assess the development and growth of Jungian thought. We will examine advances in defining key concepts such as archetypes and complexes, and will consider the ways in which Post-Jungians have applied Jung's ideas to diverse academic fields, including gender studies, art and literature, politics and economics, religion and history. We will also consider what it means to practice and undergo Jungian analysis today. This module will orient you towards the key debates in the field, and will encourage you to reflect on the nature of interdisciplinary.

Module aims
