Interview with John A Sanford about the many forms of Christianity, Jung's view on evil and Fritz Künkel's we-psychology
Hi Kristopher, I am glad you found the interview interesting. Sanford really brings a lot of clarity to the table and I agree with how the human and relational element is more emphasized by him.
This was a very interesting interview. I have always had difficulty in conceptualizing Jung's idea of individuation. It has always seemed vague to me because of how psychologically abstract his views were. Sanford brings a more human element to the idea of individuation by including the story of the Vietnam veteran. The real question of individuation to me is, "What will it take to burn away the deadwood of the unconscious to become/come as close as possible to the archetype of the Self?" Introducing a more social view in terms of self-sacrifice for the sake of others has definitely given me more to think about, and, finally, a way to concretize Jung's abstract psychology. Thank you for sharing this post. I look forward to reading/listening to the others you have on here.
