Presentazione

Cosa possiamo recuperare e fare nostro del Libro rosso di C.G. Jung, individualmente e collettivamente, per la nostra epoca, così profondamente segnata dall’Umbra Mundi (“ombra del mondo”)? Questa è la domanda di base che sarà affrontata dai relatori di questo simposio organizzato presso la Fondazione Eranos, la cui ideazione è inevitabilmente attraversata dai pensieri e dalle preoccupazioni riguardanti l’attuale pandemia di Coronavirus. In una prospettiva più generale, in ogni caso, in assenza della guida di una grande narrazione o di un mito collettivo, siamo consapevoli di vivere oggi in una fase storica di volatilità globale e di profonda incertezza rispetto al futuro. Una percezione simile era diffusa nel periodo in cui Carl Gustav Jung lavorò al suo Libro rosso. In risposta a tale incertezza, dal 1913, Jung intraprese un viaggio interiore e diede forma a un’opera che riflette il suo ritrovamento di significato in un mito personale, attraverso il processo d’individuazione. Il suo approccio ai problemi presentati dallo spirito del suo tempo ha però anche un risvolto per il nostro tempo. Il Libro rosso ha infatti il potenziale per diventare una guida per chi vive nella condizione postmoderna del XXI secolo.

Presentation

Can we find value, individually and collectively, in Jung’s Red Book for a time like ours, which is so deeply overcast by the Umbra Mundi ("World Shadow)? The coronavirus pandemic inevitably shadows all our thoughts as we prepare this Eranos Symposium on “Jung’s Red Book for Our Time”. On an even larger scale, we recognize that we are facing a world historical transition in human culture without the guidance traditionally offered by grand narratives or collective myths. A similar mood of deep anxiety about the future overshadowed the world when C. G. Jung began working on his Red Book in 1913. In response to his “Spirit of the Times,” Jung embarked on an inner journey with “the Spirit of the Depths” and created his Liber Novus, a work that reflects his discovery of a personal myth. His approach to the problems presented by the spirit of his times also has prescriptive significance for our times. The Red Book has the potential to offer guidance for people living under the disruptive conditions of the first half of the 21st century. This potential will be explored by the speakers and participants in this Symposium.

Présentation

Que pouvons-nous sauver et faire nôtre du Livre rouge, individuellement et collectivement, pour notre époque, si profondément marquée par « l'ombre du monde » (Umbra Mundi) ? C'est la question fondamentale qui sera abordée par les intervenants de ce symposium organisé par la Fondation Eranos, dont la conception est inévitablement traversée par les réflexions et les préoccupations sur la pandémie actuelle de Coronavirus. Dans une perspective plus générale, en l’absence d’un grand récit ou d’un mythe collectif, nous vivons aujourd’hui une phase historique de volatilité mondiale et de profonde incertitude quant à l’avenir. Une perception similaire était répandue à l'époque où Carl Gustav Jung travaillait sur son Livre rouge. En réponse à cette incertitude, depuis 1913 Jung a entrepris un voyage intérieur et a façonné une œuvre qui reflète sa recherche de sens dans un mythe personnel par le biais du processus d’individuation. Cependant, son approche des problèmes présentés par « l'esprit du temps » a également une implication culturelle plus large. Le Livre rouge a le potentiel de devenir un guide pour ceux qui vivent dans la condition postmoderne du 21e siècle.

Vorbemerkung

Was kann uns C. G. Jungs Rotes Buch heute geben, für den Einzelnen wie für die Gemeinschaft, für unser Zeitalter, das so tief vom „Schatten der Welt“ (Umbra Mundi) geprägt ist? Dies ist die zentrale Frage, mit der sich die Redner auf diesem von der Eranos-Stiftung organisierten Symposium befassen werden, dessen Konzeption zwangsläufig von Gedanken und Bedenken über die aktuelle Coronavirus-Pandemie durchkreuzt wird. Die Perspektive dieses Symposions trägt dabei der Tatsache Rechnung, dass in Teilen der Gesellschaft in einer Zeit enormer globaler Veränderungen große Unsicherheiten vorherrschen und vielen Menschen die Bindung an eine „Große Erzählung“ oder einen kollektiven Mythos fehlt. Eine ähnliche Wahrnehmung war auch zu der Zeit weit verbreitet, als Jung an seinem Roten Buch arbeitete. Seit 1913, als Antwort auf diese Unsicherheit, unternahm Jung eine innere Reise und formte ein Werk, das seine Sinnfindung in einem persönlichen Mythos durch den Prozess der Individuation widerspiegelt. Seine Herangehensweise an die Probleme, die der „Zeitgeist“ aufwirft, hat jedoch auch eine umfassendere kulturelle Implikation. Das Rote Buch hat daher das Potenzial, ein Leitfaden für uns zu werden, die wir in der postmodernen Situation des 21. Jahrhunderts leben.
