From the Editor — Kathryn Madden
When the Jungian community, which includes analysts, educators, laypersons, and anyone interested in Jung's writings and thought, loses an individual who has contributed to our community on so many levels, I feel that it is important to recognize this individual …
Remembering Philip— Beverley Zabriskie
… Philip Tyler Zabriskie died at twenty-two minutes after midnight on Christmas morning 2005. In the months since Philip's death, I have learned that we do not know the arc of a man's life until and beyond his death. The mix of his alchemy, of who he was in body, spirit, and soul, is still being discovered, and the ongoing creative affects of his personality and work are still emerging. …
Prologue to The Odyssey— Philip Zabriskie
In my fortieth year, I had a dream: a foreign sailor on his voyage home was stranded in a foreign land.
On awakening, my mind went to Odysseus, the seaman from Ithaca. While known as the Greek trickster warrior of the Illiad, he lives in our psyches and language as “the man of twists and turns.” His name has come to signify a perilous and far-flung journey, an elliptical homeward course, an Odyssey. …
Amplification as Consecration (for Philip Zabriskie: In Memoriam) — James Hillman
A question has occurred to me through the years: What gives such potency to Jung's method of amplification? Simply by finding a cultural parallel to an enigmatic dream image, neologism or behavior, a person feels livened, even excited enough to pursue research in books and pictures to find further similarities, and to elaborate the dream with acts of embodied imagination. How come this power of amplification? …
Introduction: History, Narrative, Psychology — Philip Zabriskie
The Odyssey is an arduous journey for one called Odysseus, originally told to a specific culture with which he was identified. We cannot conceive how those who first heard Homer's oration received or understood the paradigm without first knowing something about the cares and disquietude of the epoch they lived in. …
Losing, Finding, Being Found: At the Edge Between Despair and Hope — Ann Belford Ulanov
Keywords: terrorism, splitting, shadow, Self
Terrorism with its splittings of the world threatens us with a sense of randomness, helplessness, meaninglessness. Splittings of Jungian groups confirm that we are not outside the world's splittings, and that we can study such splits by looking into our own. This paper examines the loss of a sense of wholeness of the Jungian community, the finding of new patterns the Self is engineering, and that we are found in a process outside ourselves that also includes us. We discover that we are not the sole authors of splittings, that the Self destroys itself if it becomes too reified or too spiritualized. We perceive shadow elements afresh by casting them on other groups and discover that we must “succumb in part“ to our shadow. Our job is to perceive, give attention (libido) to witness this Self process, which means identifying and disidentifying from our own view simultaneously.
The Ethics of Individuation, The Individuation of Ethics — Murray Stein
Keywords: conscience, ethics, individuation, inflation, morality, self
This paper considers two questions that have to do with the relation between individuation and ethics: First, does ethics play a vital and crucial role in the individuation process as depicted in Analytical Psychology and encountered in psychoanalysis? Second, does individuation play a role in the elaboration of ethics? I assume here that both individuation and ethics are open and dynamic, not static and fixed programs. Individuation unfolds over the course of a person's lifetime and is full of ambiguities, false pathways, and contradictory tendencies. Ethics is not primarily about following concrete rules and codes but rather about reflection on human actions from a moral perspective. Both involve an ongoing human endeavor to incarnate more fully the archetypal self as it presents itself in a particular time and place, individual or cultural. This paper considers how they intersect, how they challenge each other, and ultimately how they enhance each other.
Witchcraft: A Psychic Category of the Imagination? For Philip Tyler Zabriskie
Keywords: witchcraft, categories of the imagination,
In utilizing witchcraft practices and beliefs amongst the Azande as a heuristic device to examine Jung's misappropriation of ideas from the social sciences, the author also acknowledges the teleological vision that inspired these attempts on Jung's part. The author goes on to suggest that participant objectivation, the approach advocated by the French post-structuralist anthropologist, Pierre Bourdieu, may have been of interest to Jung in his endeavour to link ideas from the social sciences with insight from analytical psychology.
