The Passion of the Western Mind: A Brief History of Western Thought in the Light of Depth Psychology

2 PM - 5 PM
Location: At the Institute 
Faculty: Richard Tarnas, Ph.D.

15 Possible Continuing Education Credits Approved for MD, PhD, LCSW, MFT & RN
 
This 5-part course will explore the history of Western thought through a depth psychology perspective while simultaneously seeking to better understand depth psychology’s historical context and cultural foundations.  
 
Participants will read The Passion of the Western Mind, a book that was often recommended to Jungians by Institute elders such as Joseph Henderson and Elizabeth Osterman as a history of Western thought that had integrated depth psychology into its narrative and perspective.  
 
The course will explore the evolution of the Western world view, beginning with its roots in ancient Greece and Israel. Tracing its development through the classical era and High Middle Ages to the Renaissance, Reformation, and Scientific Revolution, we will examine the gradual transformation of the modern world view, established during the Enlightenment and counterbalanced by Romanticism, into the radically pluralistic postmodern sensibility that influences the increasingly global civilization of the present age. Lectures will address key dimensions in each epoch’s world view such as the nature of the cosmos, the divine, the human, and the mythic metanarrative with which each age sought to understand itself.
 
Familiarity with the grand lines of Western intellectual and spiritual history is no longer simply the mark of an educated person in the West; such knowledge has become necessary to engage our own critical moment in history, which has been fundamentally shaped, for better and for worse, by the powerfully dynamic character of the Western mind and psyche and its complex evolution. The depth psychology tradition initiated by Freud and Jung provides an enormously fruitful perspective for exploring that history, while in turn that history can illuminate the crucial intellectual foundations and cultural significance of depth psychology itself.
