The Third International Conference of Analytical Psychology & Chinese Culture
Sponsored by IAAP (International Association for Analytical Psychology)
Ethics and Wisdom
September 22-24, 2006
Sponsored by the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP), South China Normal University (SCNU), and the Chinese Institute of Analytical Psychology (CIAP), this third International Conference of Analytic Psychology and Chinese Culture provides a unique forum for analysts, psychologists and scholars to share ideas, make direct contact with Chinese culture, the people and the land.
“We need to have a correctly three dimensional life if we wish to experience Chinese wisdom as a living thing…... We must continue Wilhelm’s work of translation on a wider sense….. Just as he translated the spiritual treasure of the East into European meaning, we should translate this meaning into life.”
In August of 1994, the IAAP sent its first official delegation to China. Subsequently the first International Conference of Analytical Psychology and Chinese Culture was held in 1998, and the 2nd in 2002. Three presidents of the IAAP, Thomas Kirsch, Luigi Zoja and Murray Stein, and 53 Jungian analysts attended the conferences and visited China. 27 Jungian books have been translated into Chinese and the first Chinese Institute of Analytical Psychology has been established.
“The contact between analytical psychology and China is important……Jung was deeply influenced by ancient Chinese wisdom There has been a longstanding affinity between analytical psychology and Taoist philosophy.”
Speakers at the third International Conference of Analytical Psychology and Chinese Culture, Ethics and Wisdom: East and West, will include
Christian Gaillard, president of the IAAP
In addition to individual presentations there will be four panels on topics related to the conference theme:
The conference organizers welcome proposals for participation on the panels. Interested parties are encouraged to send proposals of up to 300 words to Heyong Shen (email@example.com) and Joe Cambray (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the March 31, 2006.
“It gives me immense pleasure to send you a message of greeting and support on this historic occasion. Jungian psychology has had a long and respectful relationship with China and its culture, and I am sure that Professor Jung himself would have been exceedingly gratified to learn of the existence of such a conference as yours.”
“The IAAP’s interest in sponsoring and supporting these conferences is a direct outgrowth of Jung’s own longstanding interest in the dialogue between Western psychology and Eastern philosophy and religion. Jung felt that the East could provide a much-needed correction for the one-sided rationalistic thinking of the West. On the other hand, he did not believe in sacrificing the gains of Western science. The solution would not be an either/or, but rather a both/and. This kind of solution can come about only through genuine dialogue, which is based on mutual respect and interest in the viewpoint of the other. That is what we have come here to do. We will be speaking and we will be listening. From this will come clarification, differentiation, and eventually an increase in consciousness.”
