Up From Scapegoating: Archetypal Theory with examples from Human Sacrifice in the Andes

Arthur will open the lecture describing archetypal scapegoat theory, historical and mythic background, and practical examples for individuals and organizations. He will describe how group forces create scapegoats, individuals, subgroups, ideas etc. in order to ensure a sense of safety and familiar continuity in its members. The scapegoat is felt to threaten the group by forcing a different and difficult perspective; sometimes there is a correct assessment of danger, more often there is a fear of difference and creativity that the group finds distasteful, or worse, dangerous to its survival.  

Pilar will follow with a modern example from a modern festival in Peruvian Andes mountains which still includes a variant of human sacrifice upon which the main ritual is based.  This example brings the collective perspective into view and bridges to other large horrific scapegoating behaviors such as the Holocaust, genocides, and recent suicidal terrorist attacks.

Learning Objectives:
1.  Develop depth perspective on small group scapegoating behavior.
2.  Generalize this group dynamic to larger collective scapegoating processes.
3.  Develop new ways of thinking and specific methodologies for decreasing the negative scapegoating potential and increasing its positive and creative manifestations.
