CNS5020 Archetypal Mythology

Course Description

In this course, students will learn why Freud, Jung, and so many others intrigued by the depths—writers, philosophers, painters, filmmakers, culture critics—have outgrown the notion of myth as “untruth” to encounter its central role in the life of the psyche. This will prepare us to explore archetypal modes of consciousness and deepen our understanding of how archetypes and myths address us every day in our dreams, our relationships, our conflicts, and our mishaps.
