The Frankenstein Prophecies
A 10 class webinar
The Frankenstein Prophecies:
Jungian-Archetypal Reflections on Ecological Crises and the God Wars
Robert Romanyshyn, Ph.D.
Course description: Based on a close reading of Mary Shelley's novel this webinar series explores multiple ways her story is a re-telling of the mythic tale of Prometheus and the Christian story of creation within the context of science and technology. As such Shelley's story haunts our time as a prophetic unfolding of the origins of technological power. Using a Jungian-Archetypal approach, this series takes up these prophetic amplifications as a collective symptom that calls us to remember what we have forgotten regarding our place within nature and the cosmos.
Speaker: Robert Romanyshyn, Ph.D., is an Affiliate Member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and an emeritus professor of psychology in the Clinical and Depth Psychotherapy Programs at Pacifica Graduate Institute. He has authored six books, has contributed chapters to numerous edited volumes, and published essays and reviews in many professional journals.
