Jung and the Postmodern by Christopher Hauke
Book DescriptionWhat has Jung to do with the Postmodern? Chris Hauke's lively and provocative book, puts the case that Jung's psychology constitutes a critique of modernity that brings it in line with many aspects of the postmodern critique of contemporary culture. The metaphor he uses is one in which 'we are gazing through a Jungian transparency or filter being held up against the postmodern while, from the other side, we are also able to look through a transparency or filter of the postmodern to gaze at Jung. From either direction there will be a new and surprising vision.' Setting Jung against a range of postmodern thinkers, Hauke recontextualizes Jung' s thought as a reponse to modernity, placing it - sometimes in parallel and sometimes in contrast to - various postmodern discourses. Including chapters on themes such as meaning, knowledge and power, the contribution of architectural criticism to the postmodern debate, Nietzsche's perspective theory of affect and Jung's complex theory, representation and symbolization, constructivism and pluralism, this is a book which will find a ready audience in academy and profession alike.
