Event Description

“To speak of a general, human life cycle," says Daniel Levinson, "is to propose that the journey from birth to old age follows an underlying, universal pattern on which there are endless cultural and individual variations."

In his essay 'The Stages of Life,' Jung discusses "the problems connected with the stages of life," claiming problem to be the kernel of culture and consciousness. Jung clearly aims at living the conscious life, just as Socrates declared the unexamined life not worth living.

On our journey through the stages (or ages) of our life, we encounter the archetypal essence of each phase, and are challenged by the essence of meaning that we are requested to deal with on our journey.

This lecture will explore some archetypal images of the journey and the stages of life, and tell some of the stories.
