Event Details

The French philosopher Henri Bergson (1859 – 1941), winner of the 1927 Nobel Prize for literature was in his time regarded as the world’s leading thinker. His ideas about the nature of time and free will preceded and influenced Jung. However, Jung is sparing in his acknowledgement of these links. Both also shared an interest in the ‘paranormal’ – Bergson was chair of the Society for Psychical Research about a hundred years ago. In this talk, I will introduce some of the philosophical background to Jung’s project, some ideas about the psychology of time, look at parallels between their ideas and explore the relevance and clinical use of Bergson’s ideas today. 

Dr Dale Mathers (MRCPsych) is a member of AJA. He teaches in Russia and Ukraine, and has written several books about analysis. He is presently editing ‘Depth psychology and climate change: The Green Book’  to be published by Routledge early summer 2020.
