Presents: Wolfgang Giegerich
Lecture: “The Advent of the Guest Shadow Integration and the Rise of Psychology?

In the early paper upon which this lecture is based, Jungian Analyst Wolfgang Giegerich writes: “….in discussing the shadow theme, I do not simply wish to report on empirical findings in therapy or to present a theory of the shadow as part of psychology. I want to discuss shadow integration as the process of the emergence of psychology which can be seen both on the collective level and as a person’s initiation into psychology. This rise of psychology has to be seen exclusively in the context of the history of the Christian West. As much as classical Greek thought about the psyche and Germanic archaic “psychology? may have influenced the Occident, the Christianization of Europe and the upheaval of the entire European population are a caesura that psychologically amounts to a second beginning of history……First shadow, then anima----this means the shadow is the Bringer of Soul, the herald of that future whose ‘real problem will be the psychological one.’

…The strange guest comes to us not all at once. We shall watch it approach through five different stages, each time in another guise. The integration of the shadow involves a passing through all of them, acquiring in each something new….What is at stake here is psychology’s coming into its own, into the logically psychological status of consciousness within a defined historical context.?

The five stages are:
I: The Enemy or Crusade Stage
II: The Heretic or witch-Hunt stage
III: The Turncoat or Subversion Stage
IV: The Mea Culpa Stage
V: The Hospitality Stage or the Accomplished Integration

Wolfgang Giegerich is a Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice near Munich, Germany. He has lectured widely, has been a regular speaker at the Eranos conferences, and has frequently taught as Visiting Professor at Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan. He was the founding editor of “GORGO?, a German journal of archetypal psychology. Of his more than 150 publications (including nine books) his latest books available in English are: The Soul's Logical Life, Dialectics and Analytical Psychology (with David Miller and Greg Mogenson), and The Neurosis of Psychology. The latter is Vol. I of The Collected English Papers of Wolfgang Giegerich. The product of over three decades of critical reflection, Giegerich's English papers are collected in four volumes: The Neurosis of Psychology (Vol. 1); Technology and the Soul (Vol.2); Soul-Violence (Vol.3); and The Soul Always Thinks (Vol.4.).

We are able to present Dr Giegerich this evening courtesy of the MN Seminar in Jungian Studies, which has flown him to the Twin City area to speak to the Seminar participants.
