"What does it mean for Jung to be a Christian? Those symbols of the Christian church continued to matter for him deeply. The crucifixion remained a central image for his thinking, and the idea of resurrection, well, he reframed it in terms of winning through to a resurrected body when one is still alive. But that is the kind of language he would no…

What Jung is trying to do is to reinvest that notion of redemption with meaning. Not in a way that abandons its theological term, but to make it meaningful: an existenti…
 
"Islam basically is acceptance. And this acceptance is not exactly identical with the Christian faith. Islam has—this is what interests me very much—in the Islamic perception of the mystery, I would say it is more open to the mystery: that God can also destroy. There’s no happy end guaranteed.” Episode description: Bernard Sartorius is a Jungian An…
