Think This Election Is About the Economy? Interview With Analyst Murray Stein


The Huffington Post featured an interview today with Murray Stein, worth reading:

Stein analyzes the American political system from a depth psychological perspective, to explore some of the issues behind the splintered society.  

"America is a very extraverted country; for a young, expanding country, this side of our American character has been an asset. But now that America is mature, it needs to develop its other side: a sense of interiority, and a turn toward contemplation and religion -- not in the sense of a missionary drive to convert the world, but a spiritual reflection on the meaning of life. America could also become a nation of culture that doesn't just provide entertainment, but literature, music and art that nourishes the soul and that sustains people when they go through dark times."

You need to be a member of C.G. Jung Center to add comments!

The purpose of the Analytical Psychology Society of Western NY is to study and share the work of C.G. Jung and related contemporary thought.

In addition to our continuing book service, The C.G. Jung Center is pleased to announce a working relationship with Talking Leaves Bookstore that will greatly expand the availability of Jungian literature in Buffalo.

Since our inception, access to the books we sell has been limited to times when our center is open to the public. As part of our arrangement with Talking Leaves they will be expanding the number of selections by Jung and related authors that they keep on their shelves.

Most of the titles will be at the Main Street store, however a list of what's available will be kept behind the counter at the Elmwood location.

We hope you will take advantage of this greatly increased opportunity to purchase these informative books so full of meaning for Psyche in the world.

Questions or comments:

"I have been compelled, in my investigations into the structure of the unconscious, to make a conceptual distinction between soul and psyche. By psyche, I understand the totality of all psychic processes, conscious as well as unconscious. By soul, on the other hand, I understand a clearly demarcated functional complex that can best be described as a "personality". (Jung, 1971: Def. 48 par. 797)
