ISPDI Conference July 8th-11th, 2021

Marking 23 years since the publication of 

The Soul's Logical Life

by Wolfgang Giegerich

Our keynote speaker, Dr. George Hogenson is a Jungian analyst from the Chicago Jung Institute and the author of numerous articles as well as the important book, Jung’s Struggle with Freud. Dr. Hogenson has been a training analyst and supervisor in the field for many years. He has a Masters in Clinical Social Work from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Yale University. He has worked extensively with the IAAP, including as Vice President, and is on the editorial board of the Journal of Analytical Psychology. Dr. Hogenson’s valuable work in philosophy and the history of psychoanalysis will certainly bring an interesting point of view to our conference. We are grateful he has accepted our invitation to present and look forward to hearing his thoughts on “The Soul’s Logical Life.”

We have three special guest speakers. The first is Dr. Nanea Takenaka. Dr. Takenaka is an associate professor at the Health and Counselling Centre at Osaka University, where she is also a clinical psychotherapist. Her excellent article, "The Realization of Absolute Beauty: An Interpretation of the Fairytale Snow White,” was published in the Journal of Analytical Psychology. She presented at several ISPDI conferences including in 2012 with a paper called, “The Moment of Knowing and an Encounter with an Other Seen in a Japanese Fairytale.” We are happy to have her presenting as a special guest this year.

The second guest speaker, Dr. Andrés Ocazionez, is a graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute in Küsnacht. He received his doctorate in the faculty of philosophy from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, with a cum laude distinction. Dr. Ocazionez presented his paper “On Psychology’s Thought of Its Own Becoming” at the inaugural conference and has since presented at two subsequent ISPDI conferences. His focused and passionate presentations are always interesting and we are pleased to have him back, this time as a special guest speaker.

Our third guest speaker is Dr. Philip Kime. Dr. Kime is a graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute in Küsnacht. He has a background in philosophy and cognitive science and presently lives and has his private practice in Zurich. He is a past vice president of the C. G. Jung Institute. We are very pleased to have him join us again and present a second paper to the society, after his 2014 presentation, “Image as Picture, Image as Debris,” which was also published in Psychology as the Discipline of Interiority, The Psychological Difference in the work of Wolfgang Giegerich.
