SONY DSC100 Years on: Origins, Innovations and Controversies

August 18-23, 2013, Copenhagen, Denmark

In 2013 it will be a hundred years since Jung first attributed the term ‘Analytical Psychology’ to his own corpus of ideas and theories. It is also exactly a century since Jung began work on the ‚Red Book’, which even though it was not published at the time, we are now able to recognize as a milestone in the development of the analytic approach to the psyche. By taking risks and shouldering burdens of a long, adventurous and often frightening journey to some of the most unknown areas of the inner world – similar to the discoverers of three centuries earlier – Jung defined a new dimension of what it means to go beyond.

Whether acknowledged or not, the history of Analytical Psychology has always honored this tradition, one of creative innovation and controversy. This appears to be a fundamental condition of an analytical attitude which requires being in touch with the vicissitudes of time and life.

Copenhagen is a particularly appropriate site for the Congress. Not only is it one of the most picturesque and friendly capitals of old Europe, but it is also a city with a rich history of openness to creativity and innovation that was home to such outstanding figures as Soren Kierkegaard, Hans Christian Andersen and Niels Bohr.

The XIXth International Congress will be dedicated to the theme of reflections on the historical roots of analytical psychology, new developments over the past 100 years and directions for the future.
