C. G. Jung’s early publications, particularly his 1916 paper “The Transcendent Function,” emphasized the dynamic role of symbols in psychic transformation. His understanding of the nature of the symbolic was also one of the features that he pointed to as distinguishing his theories from Sigmund Freud’s, arguing that while his system was genuinely symbolic, Freud’s was “semiotic.” The presentation will explore what this distinction means, and why it is important for understanding the emphasis Jung placed on the image. In the Red Book, Jung remarks that “the wealth of the soul exists in images,” thereby highlighting the importance of understanding the nature of archetypal images. In the presentation and workshop attention will be paid to how individuals relate to archetypal images, with particular attention to forms of sacred space such as mandalas, and ritual or liturgical settings. This will lead participants to view symbols, and archetypal images as deeply contextual and holistic in nature. Examples such as these will be characterized as “dense symbolic structures.” The presentation will include an overview of recent work on the nature of symbol systems, relating Jung’s theories to developments in our understanding of how dense symbolic structures give rise to archetypal experiences.

Join us for October Jung Society Movie & Discussion Night
The October selection for the Jung Society film appreciation group is going to be Amarcord, Frederico Fellini’s joyous, frenetic exploration of small town life in pre-war, 1930’s Italy. More accessible and much funnier than Fellini’s other films, Amarcord is infused with the artist’s affection for the culture within which he grew to young manhood (despite the growing Fascist presence, which Fellini and his family opposed, in Italian society.)
Amarcord is a 1973 Italian comedy-drama film directed by Federico Fellini, a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age tale about Titta, an adolescent boy growing up among an eccentric cast of characters in the village of Borgo San Giuliano (situated near the ancient walls ofRimini) in 1930s Fascist Italy. The film's title(pronounced [amarˈkɔrd) is a Romagnol neologism for "I remember."
Location: Lee and Terry Lawrence’s home Kinsale Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27517. For directions, call 919 604-0427.
