Erich Neumann has been widely considered to be Jung's most brilliant student
and heir to the mantle of leadership among analytical psychologists until
his untimely death in 1960 at the age of fifty-five. Many of his works are
considered classics in the field to the present day - The Origins and History of
Consciousness and The
Great Mother, to name just the best known among many others.
Now with the publication of the correspondence between Neumann and Jung (Analytical Psychology in Exile,
Princeton University Press, 2015) and of the substantial papers presented
at the conference held at Kibbutz Shefayim in Israel honoring the
publication of the correspondence (Troubled
Times, Creative Minds, Chiron 2016), a great deal of new
interest is developing in the life and works of Neumann. The five-part
webinar Series will be devoted to exploring the important relationship
between Neumann and Jung and discussing Neumann's works in many areas,
clinical and cultural, from the perspective of analytical psychology. The
aim of this Series is to contribute to the momentum of growing interest in
the full range of Neumann's writings.
