“The Theory of C.G.Jung – Interdisciplinary research”
Wroclaw, Poland, June 12-14, 2014
Place: Wroclaw University
In various fields of contemporary scientific research ongoing discussions regarding the validity and value of C. G. Jung’s theory of the human psyche and its relationship to the world is slowly gaining momentum. At the same time this theory is among the most quoted and commented on among contemporary psychological theories. Jungian concepts and assumptions are used today in many areas where the scientists seek to build bridges between psychology and other areas of science.
A paradox, however, remains that despite such clear resonance with disciplines engaged in reflection on the consciousness and the environment, this approach seems not to be employed by contemporary academic psychology nor is it a part of related research programs. Jungian theory is treated rather as solely of historical interest and not as the theory worthy of further development.
To fill this explicit gap we wish to propose collective, wider reflections which will articulate the key Jungian concepts and findings that seem to have stood the test of time and have been proven valuable from the point of view of scientific discourse. Thus the proposed conference is directed not only to Jungian scholars, Jungian analysts, psychologists or psychiatrists, but also to the researchers representing other general areas: philosophy, physics, anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, political science, biology, medicine etc. A major task will be to outline the contemporary usefulness and applicability of Jung’s ideas at the beginning of XXI century while simultaneously making a critical review of this theory.
We invite you to join us together with those who use Jung’s concepts in their practice and various forms of research. The well-known application of these concepts in psychotherapy, philosophical anthropology, the study of symbolic life, and in conjunction with theoretical physics, have been frequently discussed, however, we also realize that there isentire range of other disciplines that could be integrated into an interdisciplinary approach including analytical psychology.
If you are interested in participating in these collective efforts we would like to invite you to join us and send the proposal of your paper.
