Spring 84: God Must Not Die! (Or Must He?): Jung and Christianity

ISBN: 978-1-935528-08-1
405 pp.

C.G. Jung's psychology of individuation and self is rooted in his interpretation of Christianity. This issue, guest-edited by Greg Mogenson, contains a new article by Wolfgang Giegerich entitled "God Must Not Die! C.G. Jung's Analysis of the One-Sidedness of Christianity," followed by several in-depth reactions to it. Topics addressed include the telos of Christianity, the theology/psychology difference, the reality of evil question, and the kenosis dynamic central to the Christian message and its relation to the end of theism.

This volume also contains a separate section called Romanyshyn and Giegerich: Poles Apart comprised of critical rejoinders to another earlier article by Giegerich published in Spring's fall 2009 issue and entitled "The Psychologist as Repentance Preacher and Revivalist/Robert Romanyshyn on the Melting Polar Ice."

An interview with Margaret Wilkinson by Daniela Sieff, "Neurobiology in the Consulting Room," is also included as well as a number of book reviews.
