online, 3 of 4 : "ANSWER to JOB", by CG Jung (what is evil ?)

Required reading assignment : "Answer to Job" by CG Jung. From Psychology and Religion, vol. 11, CWs The essay is only 108 pages yet dense and at times impenetrable. For the 3rd meetup, lets read from section 10 to section 13, pp. 54- 82. Again, "Answer to Job" is Jung's examination of the symbolic role that theological concepts (ie: god, evil, wisdom) play in humanity's psychic life. "We need more understanding of human nature, because the only real danger that exists is man himself. He is the great danger, and we are pitifully unaware of it. We know nothing of man, far too little. His Psyche should be studied, because we are the origin of all coming evil." (Jung).
