'Civilisation in Transition: Clinical, Social and Academic Perspectives'

For the full Call for Papers in English, Portuguese and Español click here

In our first conference in South America we would like to offer as broad, imaginative and topical focus of inspiration for contributions as possible.

Around the globe we are witnessing turbulent political and social changes that raise questions and concerns about the underlying psychological and social forces. We have therefore chosen the title of Volume 10 of Jung’s Collected Works, ‘Civilization in Transition’, as the theme of our conference as it captures something of the feeling of the times in which we find ourselves.
‘Civilization in Transition’ contains essays written between 1918 and 1958 and collects together some of Jung’s various responses to the period of massive social upheaval and destruction that he lived through.
The topics addressed by Jung in Volume 10 seem as pertinent today as they did in Jung’s time, perhaps with an even greater sense of urgency. His papers in that volume include essays on the unconscious, the undiscovered Self, the shadow, the state of ‘psychotherapy today’, the spiritual problem of modern man, conscience, good and evil, archaic man, Eastern religions, flying saucers, and one called ‘After the Catastrophe’, amongst others.

Call For Papers 

In this spirit, we hope that Jung’s range of responses will inspire you to submit proposals offering your own contemporary reflections and responses to the feeling of our ‘transitional’ times.
We invite contributors to submit proposals of no more than 500 words to journal.jap@thesap.org.uk before September 15th, 2019, for this timely and exciting conference. We look forward to you joining us in São Paulo in 2020!
