Notes From The President and Editor

Dear Friends of The C.G. Jung Society of Vermont,

Our November issue of the e-journal is lighter in content than in other months, but certainly not in subject matter.

In keeping with October’s theme which centered on the publication of Jung’s Red Book, we open with an essay by the editor entitled Metaphysics, Subjectivity, and the Limits of Consciousness: The Epistemological Parameters of Analytical Psychology. Jung’s work is so consistently misunderstood and mis-represented - and the publication of his journal is likely to add to prevailing misconceptions in unenlightened quarters - that the editor in offering this essay hopes to shed some light on Jung’s approach to psyche. Connected to this, a colleague from The Jung Institute – Boston recently emailed me with the information that the website, YouTube, has some great videos concerning the Red Book - be sure to check it out.

Mindful of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday in a few weeks, in The Arts section we offer you a poem by Emily Murphey entitled, appropriately enough, Thanksgiving 2005.

The C.G. Jung Society of Montreal has sent us word that Dr. Polly Young-Eisendrath will be presenting for their society later this month - go to the News From.... section for more information on their offering.

And, as always, we’d love to hear from you and invite you to join as a member. Membership helps support JSVT efforts in Vermont to educate about Carl Jung and his work. For membership information and to find out more about The C.G. Jung Society of Vermont, check out our website at:


With best regards,

Stephanie Buck
