American Soul: The “Trump” Phenomenon

This presentation lays out the concept of the soul from the alchemical standpoint of anima mundi or world soul, and in particular, the cultural soul of America, and relates it to the new science of complexity. 

We will look at how the contemporary phenomenon of “Trump” in the American political psyche serves as an alchemical “emergence” from the interaction of multiple systems in the cultural psyche.  Self-interested power drive, misogyny, xenophobia, racism, elitism, entitlement, aristocracy make their appearance as predominant aspects of the American psyche obscured by the received narrative of democracy, as the emergent symbolic image of “wholeness:” in America becomes more complex.
