New lecture coming soon:
Homo Sapiens or Homo Feelius.!
'Homo Sapiens' refers to "Thinking Man". The historical period referred to as 'The Enlightenment' (1600+) brought vast changes, mostly for the better, to the human condition. The main factors that underpinned these changes were the development of human reason, scientific progress and humanism. Recent social and cultural developments are degrading the emphasis on reason and replacing it with a focus on feelings as the main arbiter of truth and social/education policy. I call this phenomenon 'Homo Feelius' i.e.feeling man.
This lecture discusses the implications, both good and ill, of these developments and the effects on how people live and cope in the modern world.
Reflections on Carl Jung's Modern Man in Search of a Soul.
This lecture considers how Jung's insights regarding the soul can help in the modern spiritual crisis facing many people who are confronting the confusion, nihilism and emptiness. This is primarily a result of the current dominance of technology and the resulting effects that produce shallow thinking and superficial living.
