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

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 livingtheconscious life, just like 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 presentation will explore crucial archetypal images of the journey and the stages of life, and tell some of the stories, with references to, among others, Pirandello, Kafka and Oedipus at Colonus.
