CLIMATE CHANGE: Anne Baring
Validity & Location
Anne Baring: Ph.D, Psychoanalyst, Author, Historian, International Lecturer
As a Jungian analyst and a historian, I would like to offer an archetypal overview of why the current crisis may have come into being; showing when, where and how the masculine and feminine archetypes – reflected in the image of a God or Goddess – became separated, and why this separation has had such a deep impact on Western civilization. I am not speaking only of the pandemic but the far greater challenge of climate change.
We live in a world that has been governed by the masculine archetype for some 4,000 years, with no feminine archetype to balance it, no sacred marriage between them. (1) As a result, world culture and the human psyche have become dangerously out of balance, out of alignment with the Earth and the Cosmos.
