This book presents a collection of individually authored chapters that give several different perspectives on Jung's psychology and its relations with religion, theology, and contemporary culture. This book provides a resource for anyone interested in the relationship between religious studies and Jungian psychology. The book's chapters describe the teaching of Jung in different academic contexts (universities, colleges, seminaries, psychology institutes), with special attention to the pedagogical and theoretical challenges that arise in their classrooms. A central theme running through all the chapters is the intensified self-reflexivity that students experience when they directly engage with Jung's ideas. As the chapters show, this self-reflexivity can be further cultivated in the classroom in ways that enhance the analytic, interpretive, and critical thinking skills that characterize the best of religious studies scholarship. The book features scholars who work with Jung in diverse academic, curricular, and pedagogical contexts and who want to engage in productive dialogue about teaching Jung, our learning goals, how we integrate scholarly debates and concerns into our pedagogies, and how our teaching both reflects and influences the status of religious studies and theology in schools today. It provides fresh perspectives on these issues, bringing together the ideas of well-respected scholars in religious studies, psychology, theology, and other disciplines whose teaching and research have explored the continuing relevance of Jung's ideas for the study of religion in the twenty-first century.
