Live Irish Myths #149: C.G. Jung's 'Answer to Job'


The Live Irish Myths livestream series continues this evening with our exploration of the work of Swiss psychotherapist Carl Gustav Jung and its influence on how we interpret mythology. Tonight I am looking in particular at what I believe to be Jung’s most important book, Answer to Job. Within its pages is an exposition of the antinomy or clash of opposites that resides within each of us, and consequently within God. Here, there is an opportunity to understand what is wrong in the state of mind of many people in western society today, and here also lies the solution to our pressing psychological problems, if only we would listen.
