Saturday Morning Talk:
Jung’s View on Development & the Final Stage of Life
April 9, 2016 (10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.)
The Great Hall, The Beatitudes campus
C.G. Jung’s views on psychological development over the life span are growing important and the human species is experiencing unprecedented longevity. Jung commented directly on this development by saying: “A human being would certainly not grow to be seventy or eighty years old if this longevity had no meaning for the species…The afternoon of human life must also have a significance of its own and cannot be merely a pitiful appendage to life’s morning…Whoever carries over into the afternoon the law of the morning must pay for it with damage to his soul.”
William Pilder PhD has spent much of his professional life applying the insights of psychology, particularly those of C.G. Jung, to the challenges of adult development. He is a Scholar in Residence on the Beatitudes Campus.
