The Jung Center of Houston presents a Jung Center Lecture - Writing Jung. New York Times best-selling novelist Selden Edwards (pictured) returns to The Jung Center to discuss his love affair with Jung’s ideas and the singular challenge he faced in writing Jung as a fictional character in The Lost Prince.How can fiction communicate truth in ways that history and theory cannot? Across three books—The Little Book, The Lost Prince, and the forthcoming, as-yet-untitled conclusion to his trilogy—Selden Edwards has traced the relationship of myth and psyche through the lives of fictional characters and the fictionalized but very familiar personae of Sigmund Freud, C.G. Jung, and Joseph Campbell. Edwards’ characters influence Freud and Jung and are, in turn, influenced by them.In this lecture, he will explore how allowing Jung to live an independent life in his imagination deepened his appreciation for Jung and changed his understanding of Jung’s ideas in unexpected and profound ways.Recommended reading: The Lost Prince, Selden Edwards.Selden Edwards - A graduate of Princeton and Stanford, Selden Edwards began writing The Little Book as a young English teacher in 1974, and continued to layer and refine the manuscript until its completion in 2007.
