Psychosocial Wednesdays: From the Suspension to The End of Certainties – War as Reset

Drawing on thinkers such as C.G. Jung, James Hillman and Simone Weil, Carpani offers insights into the psychosocial and spiritual dimensions of war. He examines the multifaceted subject of war, exploring the history and wars that shaped the 19th and 20th centuries, highlighting the grim and harrowing realities of warfare, and discussing the nature of war, its seemingly inevitable recurrence, and its role in shaping human history: Are periods of peace merely temporary interludes between conflicts? Carpani touches on the decline of European civilisation, the role of women in social change and the influence of technology in the 21st century, highlighting the shift from an era of unity and brotherhood to one of chaos and conflict. The presentation links these themes to the COVID-19 pandemic, suggesting parallels with the war in Ukraine and a shift from the suspension of certainties to the end of certainties. They would reflect on the need for a collective reset and the importance of introspection and creativity in this evolving landscape. Carpani calls for a united Europe that embraces diversity and self-discovery, while urging listeners to confront existential questions of individual and collective identity.

  • Brief Overview:

    More than a century ago, Freud gathered colleagues for Wednesday meetings that opened the world of psychoanalysis to a wide range of powerful ideas. Psychosocial Wednesdays are modeled on those Wednesdays and on Jung´s meetings at the Psychological Club, and feature speakers from various psychoanalytic traditions, schools, and associated fields.
