Teaching Jung

This chapter takes the classroom impact as its main topic, examining what particular aspects of Jungian psychology stimulate certain kinds of interest and insight among various students. This chapter considers the ethical implications and educational responsibilities of teachers who bring Jung into the classroom, especially when the topic turns to the subject of Jung's misbehavior with his female clients. As a lifelong feminist, the author of this chapter makes clear to her students where she thinks Jung went astray and violated the principles of his own theories and clinical advice. Along with these reflections, the chapter also evaluates Jung's ideas in their philosophical context, which it associates with the Continental philosophy of Martin Heidegger and Karl Jaspers and before them the lineage of Hegel, Spinoza, and Plato. This adds a new and important theme to consider in classroom discussions of Jung, for which the chapter offers a useful introductory guide.
