On the occasion of the launch of his new edited collection, Stefano Carpani will be in conversation with Andrew Samuels (former Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex), Drs Laner Cassar, Martyna Chrzescijanska, Monica Luci and Jennifer Swan to explore and celebrate this festschrift for Andrew Samuels written by his PhDs.



This book reunites some of Andrew´s PhD supervisees – scholars trained at the Centre for Psychoanalytical Studies (now PPS), University of Essex, who have adopted a critical, Post-Jungian approach to studying analytical psychology. Carpani offers a new classification – Neo-Jungians of the Essex School – to capture this way of working, one that is committed to cross disciplinarity, dedicated to engaging psychoanalysis in mutually beneficial conversations and one that has been significantly shaped by Andrew Samuels and Renos Papadopoulous. This book includes chapters that shed new light on Jungian concepts and related fields in its theoretical orbit including alchemy, archetypes, individuation, the role of art, the nature of relationships and politics.
