The C G Jung Society of Sydney is a non-profit association that was founded in 1975 to further the psychological & philosophical perspectives and practices of Swiss psychologist C G Jung and the body of thought that has developed from his original work. We provide a rich and varied program of public talks, workshops, reading groups and other events to promote understanding of Jung's perspective in areas like psychology, philosophy, alchemy and dream analysis.
Friday Night Meetings…
Wolfgang Giegerich has been heralded as the next wave in Jungian thinking, yet few Jungians have read his work. Giegerich has been dismissed with the single accusation that he is a Hegelian, as if that term alone meant that all “good” Jungians need look no further.
Giegerich is little read by Jungians and non-Jungians alike, but the few who have persisted and allowed Giegerich’s thinking to work within have been opened up to a profoundly deeper level of understanding.
Of those who have entered the Cretan labyrinth of Giegerich’s work of over some 200 publications, few have emerged unchanged.
Sydney Jung society President Robert Dommett is one of the dedicated students of Giegerich’s work.
As part of his discussion, Robert will explore the philosophical foundations of Giegerich’s work and their relations to Jung and give us the opportunity to decide whether Giegerich’s work can help us to live better lives.
