Course Description

Based on a close reading of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, this course 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 course 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.

This course is ideal if

  • You are interested in exploring a Jungian perspective on the troubles facing our world today. 
  • You want to learn more about the archetypal patterns that influence and shape our current culture.
  • You are interested in viewing major life themes such as the Feminine, war, death, life, evil and belonging through an Archetypal lens.
