C. G. Jung begins the Red Book with quotes from the book of Isaiah and the Gospel according to John. Already at the beginning of the Red Book, the religious stance of Jung is evident, which characterizes his whole psychology:  Jung looked for the soul and found a basic structure which he called the Self.  For Jung, Christ is a central symbol of the Self. “No one can be spared the way of Christ, since this way leads to what is to come. You should all become Christs.” (Red Book, Norton, p. 234)

Learning objectives:

  • Explore the concept of Jesus as a heroic mythological figure. 

  • Explain why Jesus functions as a central psychological symbol of the Self.

  • Give examples of the effects that Jesus, as a symbolic reality, has had on Western culture.

Hansueli F. Etter has a PhD in anthropology from the University of Zürich, has participated in archaeological excavations in Switzerland and abroad, and has lectured for many years at the University of Basel. He received his Analytical Psychology diploma from the C. G. Jung-Institute in Küsnacht in 1982 and has worked since then in private practice. He is the president of the Foundation for Jungian Psychology, Küsnacht, and a founding member of The Research and Training Centre for Depth Psychology according to C. G. Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz, Zürich, where he has lectured regularly since 1995.  His main research interests are the religious dimension of Jungian psychology and the secret relation between psyche and matter (synchronicity). He has published several books and articles on anthropology, archaeology and Jungian psychology. He resides in Küsnacht in Marie-Louise von Franz’s former house, is married to Jacqueline Duermueller, a Jungian psychologist, and has 3 adult children and three grandchildren.
