Death’s Knowable Mysteries — Meredith Sabini
To call death a knowable mystery may seem like an oxymoron. Yet knowledge comes in many forms, not only the simple certainty of black or white, yes or no, but also in subtle and truly infinite shades of gray. Death lets us know it is in the wings in a multitude of ways, some subtle, some not. Over the years, I have witnessed death in most of its varieties: from accident, illness, suicide, old age, even murder. In this essay, I will recount seven instances of sudden or accidental death and one of natural death in old age in order to show that what we call accidental may be an accurate description only from the perspective of the visible, explicate world. …
Balder’s Bad Dream: Jung’s Relevance to the PostModern Condition — Mark F. Kuras
“Postmodernism” is a name given to the current status of our consciousness. Succinctly stated, this is a collective psychological state based on the premise that our knowledge of the world claims no divine foundation: individual points of view are limited by collective assumptions of one's culture and the idiosyncrasies of one's personal experience. Everything is relative. …
Sounding Through the Mask: The Persona and Sound — Martha Mae Newell
Since childhood the most significant way I've experienced by extroversion is through the awareness of sound. I remember waking in the morning to the sound of tires on the pavement as cars passed by my home, and I could tell from their sound whether it was clear, raining or whether a snowfall had come overnight. When I was very young the sounds of music drew my attention and led to piano lessons and playing the drums in bands, orchestras, and dance bands through graduate school and beyond. So when I began to study Jung's writings, I was struck by the fact that the persona, a major cornerstone of extroversion, was always referred to in visual language, but no mention was made of its auditory aspects …

A Time Line of the History and Development of Jung’s Works and Theories — Gary V. Hartman
This time line resulted from my search for the fundamentals of Jung's psychology: I wanted to discover for myself where Jung started and how he got to that model of the psyche which we today cal “Jungian Psychology.” In fact, my first Jungian paper bore the title, “Is There Such a Thing as Jungian Psychology?” …
