Join us for an Online Key Concept Lecture from the
University of Wales Trinity Saint David
Donald Trump's victory in the US Presidential elections, combined with Brexit and other tensions in Europe, clearly indicate that we are at a turning point in the international order comparable to the close of the Cold War in 1989-91, or the end of the Second World War in 1945.
This lecture will ask what C.G. Jung would have said about the current times, using his archetypal version of astrology - what is now known as archetypal cosmology. We will place Jung's thought in its classical context, ask whether we can we use his approach to astrology to gain insight into current affairs and consider the implications of Jung's thought for our understanding of democratic engagement and such conventional divides as Left versus Right.

THE LECTURE WILL BE RECORDED AND WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR A MONTH AFTER THE RECORDING. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND LIVE YOU CAN BOOK AND ACCESS THE RECORDING.
