Workshops and Seminars
The C.G. Jung Foundation presents
Speakers: Erik Goodwyn, Alan Maloney, David Napier, David Rottman and Daryl Sharp, with a special film presentation of his ideas by Anthony Stevens himself from his home in Corfu, Greece.
Saturday, April 20, 2013
Please join us on Saturday, April 20, 2013, for a very special day of lectures, conversation, videos and celebration in honor of Anthony Stevens, psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, author of many well-loved books including Archetypes and Ariadne's Clue, and pioneer in the field of Evolutionary Psychology.
In his work as a psychologist, scientist and humanist, Anthony Stevens has made major contributions to our understanding of the human psyche. In particular, he has brought forward a biological basis for Jung's ideas while maintaining the spiritual import so crucial to Jung's formulations. In his many books, Anthony Stevens has given us a new synthesis of evolutionary theory and the archetypes, including the revolutionary finding that psychiatric symptoms are manifestations of ancient adaptive strategies which are no longer necessarily appropriate but which can best be understood and treated in an evolutionary and developmental context.
Keynote Speaker: Erik Goodwyn, MD, a psychiatrist and author who has been greatly influenced by the work of Anthony Stevens, will speak on the subject of his book The Neurobiology of the Gods: How Brain Physiology Shapes the Recurrent Imagery of Myth and Dreams. Dr. Goodwyn will discuss how the emotional imagery of myth and dreams can be traced to our deep brain psychology, demonstrating why mythic or religious symbols are indeed more "godlike" than we might have imagined.
Dr. Goodwyn holds a B.S. in physics and mathematics from Western Kentucky University, an M.S. in anatomy and neurobiology from the University of Louisville and an MD from the University of Cincinnati. He is an officer in the air force and has been involved in teaching as well as contributing to research in psychiatric imaging and genomics studies. He received the Abe Heller Essay award for essays on psychodynamic theory and neuroscience, and is currently involved in writing for The Journal of Analytical Psychology. Dr. Goodwyn will also be available for a book signing following the presentations.
Alan Maloney, MD, Jungian analyst and psychiatrist, will also speak in tribute to Anthony Stevens on the subject of Beyond the Night Sky: A Perspective on Science and Humanism.
Dr. Maloney is a Jungian analyst in private practice in San Francisco and Palo Alto, California. He is a member of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco and is an Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford School of Medicine.
Professor David Napier, DPhil will give a presentation titled Why Archetypes Matter: Anthony Stevens, an Appreciation.
David Napier is currently Professor of Anthropology at University College London, and Lead on its Science, Medicine, and Society Network. His work has focused on concepts of personhood, the cultural construction of otherness, theoretical immunology, law and anthropology, and applied medical anthropology.
The day will include an Introduction to the work and achievements of Anthony Stevens by David Rottman, President and Chairman of the Board of the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York; a 20-minute video from Anthony Stevens (filmed in Corfu, his home), welcoming guests and reviewing his approach to the psyche; and a tribute from Daryl Sharp, publisher of Inner City Books.
