Part 1: Jung and phenomenology revisited
Roger Brooke’s book Jung and Phenomenology was ground-breaking and in the first part of the afternoon he will present his current thinking on the topic. This is a typical review from the time of its original publication in 1991: ‘This book is, quite simply, a brilliant and original phenomenological reading of Jungian psychology’ (Christopher Aanstoos in The Humanistic Psychologist).
(Discussant: Mark Saban)
Part 2: The warrior’s return: combat experience and the requirements for homecoming
In the second part of the afternoon, Roger will present his acclaimed new work on the archetypal, civic, ethical and social aspects of working with combat veterans on their return home.
