Lecture:”Carl Jung and the Greeks”

Hope to see everybody at this event this Thursday “Carl Jung and the Greeks” by Christos Gianopoulos , who is a board member of our Hellenic Society of Maine, will be presenting this interesting subject. Carl Jung developed his own theories about how to read the depth of one’s own mind and to understand one’s own personality and cultural influences. He used Greek philosophical ideas from Plato and Heraclitus to  distinguish his psychological brand from those from those of his contemporaries, Sigmund Freud and Alfred Alder, and he emphasized the enduring value of the Greek myths in giving us insights into the connection between conscious thought and the deeper layers of the mind that contain potential energy and greater wisdom.
