Lest We Forget, Part II


Nazi Shadow:

Individuation as Antidote for the Problem of Our Times


Presented by
Holly J. Fincher, PhD


Sunday,  February 16, 2020, 4:00 - 6:00 pm

(this program was not recorded)

“Lest We Forget” is an ongoing analytic research project which considers the catastrophe of WWII as a collective symptom of our changing god image—an archetypal process that continues to unfold in contemporary collective problems and experience.  As a new chapter in this continued body of work, this presentation will explore the so-called Nazi Shadow as a double entendre:  as shadow of one contemporary individual and also as shadow unrealized by an historical collective group. Tracing the archetypal patterns that underlie and influence all human experience, we will learn how Jung’s theory of Individuation provides a guideline for how each of us can help psychologically toward a more positive outlook.

Learning objectives:

  • Apply C. G. Jung’s psychological concept of the shadow to the history of Nazism and World War II.

  • Differentiate between personal, collective and archetypal shadow material. 

  • Explain C. G. Jung’s concept of individuation and its relevance to human psychology.
