Is the culture in crisis? Is what is happening in culture any different than before? Is the Jungian response to cultural turmoil to turn inward a truly psychological reaction? Anima mundi, the soul of the world, was considered by alchemists as the force providing vitality to all earthly life. Contemporary complexity theory holds that phenomena of the world emerge through the interaction of systems outside of human intentionality. From these standpoints, cultural issues can be seen from a larger depth psychological perspective than contemporary political dialogue allows. This lecture will present contemporary cultural phenomena as interactions of a larger cultural unconscious.
