ABOUT THE BOOK
Even more than half a century ago, CG Jung, who was born in 1875 and died in 1961, had significant concerns about the challenges of a growing mind/matter split and the excessive focus of western cultures in particular on science, technology, and rational thinking.
Jung believed this trend toward “modernity” emerged at the expense of more soulful, reflective, poetic ways of being and issued a strong caution against our increasing reliance on machines and technology. He warned of severe consequences that might ultimately propel our civilization toward collapse, unless modernity could be adequately acknowledged and dealt with from a psychological view.
Social media, video gaming, virtual reality, digital media, screen time, mobile devices, electronic music, “smart” technology, and electronic waste are all imperatives in our current culture, and will continue to be future realities for decades, if not centuries, to come. How do we re-boot our understanding of the psychological and soulful aspects of technology in order to adopt a new way of being in a digital world? To do this, we must increasingly look with an archetypal eye.
The authors in this anthology proffer a chance to re-invent our relationship to the digital age and re-infuse these sacred tools with meaning and soul.
