EXPLORING JUNG’S “ANSWER TO JOB”
An Online Course Presented By Rose F. Holt, M.A., and Boris L. Matthews, Ph.D.
November 9th, 2009 through December 14th, 2009


“The book does not pretend to be anything but the voice or question of a single individual who hopes or expects to meet with thoughtfulness in the public.”
~ C.G. Jung

"Answer to Job" is the most controversial of Jung’s works. It is also the one he most valued. We will read and discuss this lengthy essay, supplementing it with information about Jung’s reasons for writing it and the furor it created. Our exploration will cover Jung’s distinction between God and god-image, his working definition of religion, and the importance of the Job story within the framework of Jung’s psychological theories.


Learning Objectives:

(1) Understand link between religious traditions and psychology (2) Explore ways scriptural story can parallel psychological development (3) Understand Jung's motivation for seeking his own "answer"
