JUNG SINCE THE RED BOOK: Art, Science and Religion
Speaker Lorenz Gude
Since the publication of the Red Book in 2009 we have a detailed record in words and pictures of the experiences from which Jung derived his psychological theory. Because he was determined to advance scientific understanding of our inner structures and processes he would not publish it because he did not want it interpreted as either art or religious (revelatory) text. 100 years after he wrote it and over 50 years since his death, this talk will explore some of the philosophic and scientific implications of the Red Book.
Lorenz Gude first encountered Jung’s work at Columbia University in NY where he studied Comparative Religion and English literature. After a long detour through many careers constantly reading Jungian books he became a Rosen Method body therapist, seeing this professional work in the context of Jungian individuation. In retirement he has experienced some results from the energy practices first known in the West through Richard Wilhelm’s Secret of the Golden Flower and continues to immerse himself in Jung’s work and in practices associated with Christianity, Taoism, and Buddhism.
