The Mystery Of Consciousness; a Jungian Perspective
The field of consciousness studies has emerged as a new discipline over the last three decades. It has attracted input from various fields including philosophy, neuroscience, computer science and even physics and mathematics. The input from psychology has been less prominent.
Two major, as yet unanswered questions, form the basis for these enquiries:
Firstly, what is consciousness and how is it related to physical processes, or brain states and secondly, why is it necessary at all?
In this talk I will explore the background to these questions and look at the contribution a Jungian perspective might make in unravelling the mystery surrounding them.
