Robert Tulip

"Modern man in Search of a Soul"

(at the MacKillop Conference Centre, 50 Archibald St, Lyneham 8-10 pm)

Modern Man in Search of A Soul is a collection of eleven essays by Carl Jung, published in 1933. The provocative theme is the clash between modern scientific rationality and the understandings of human identity that emerge from religious and spiritual traditions. Jung explores the need for soul in psychology, through topics including his break with Freud, his approach to dream analysis, psychological types, archaic man, and the spiritual problems of modern man.
This talk will explore implications of Jung’s analysis of the soul for philosophy, psychology, politics and religion.

Robert Tulip has Bachelors and Masters Honours Degrees in philosophy from Macquarie University. After thirty years working for the federal government, he is now returning to focus on these intellectual interests, especially the philosophical problems of psychology and religion.
