The Shadow & the Problem of Evil

Reflections on a 6-part webinar presented by the Asheville Jung Center
broadcast January-June 2016

The problem of evil infects the individual psyche and the social order. Indeed, it is a fire sweeping across world culture and political arrangements. The reality of evil is indisputable,  but there are questions about it:

     What is it?

Where do we locate it?

What can we do about it?

The sight of evil kindles evil in the soul....
The victim is not the only suffer; everybody in the vicinity of the crime, including the murderer, suffers with him. Something of the abysmal darkness of the world has broken in on us, poinsiningthe very air we breathe and befouling the water with the stale, nauseating taste of blood.
— C G Jung, 1945, "After the Catastrophe"
