9:00-11:00am | Living into Whole Type | Angelo Spoto
For decades, Jung’s type theory has arguably enjoyed a popularity among the public-at-large even beyond the formulation of his archetypal hypothesis, his ideas on synchronicity, and his original and creative work on alchemy. For the adventuresome reader, Jung’s massive volume Psychological Types still remains a tour de force in the history of ideas.
Expanding on Jung’s foundational material, Angelo Spoto will introduce the model that he has been touring with throughout the country for the last 10+ years, and recently had written up for the special, centennial edition of the Journal of Analytical Psychology, devoted to Jung’s original publication of his typological volume (CW 6).
This new typological model is based on the idea of “whole type,” and utilizes and integrates a typological perspective on the archetypal Self for a deeper understanding of both the individual’s typology and the individuation process itself. Included in the presentation will be an analysis of Jung’s own type, according to this new model.
