Against the Tide: Repositioning the 8 Functions in Psychology—Richard Owen

October 7, 2022 @ 7:45 pm 8:45 pm Australia/Sydney

Since C.G. Jung first described his 8 types of mental processing over 100 years ago, they were at first neglected, then later taken up again and developed by type theorists and practitioners. However as Jung’s work was widely disregarded by mainstream psychology academia, there has been little reconciliation between type theory and areas such as cognitive psychology or modern consciousness studies. In this presentation Richard will share some ideas from his ongoing work on identifying analogous concepts relating to the 8 functions, in an effort towards reintegrating type and the mainstream.
