Brief history of the Eranos Foundation


. top "Homepage"

Meaning of Eranos
The word 'Eranos', in Greek language, applies to a banquet, both spiritual and material, which lasts thanks to the contributions each participant makes. The Hungarian mythologist Karl Kerenyi took the original meaning of the word, which appears for the first time in Greek literature in Homer's Odyssey, in terms of a 'spiritual nucleus': this was to be developed by participants in an atmosphere of freedom and spontaneity, with songs, poems, improvised verses, or with a symbolical offering to the group.

From 1933 onwards, a modern Eranos took place again and lasted for more than seventy years at Ascona-Moscia, on the Swiss side of Lago Maggiore. It was there that Olga Fröbe Kapteyn's idea to create a 'free space for the spirit', a 'meeting place between East and West' took shape, and where the relation between the individual, the spirit and the peculiar images of the soul were to be unceasingly re-imagined.

The Eranos Tagungen
The banquet, alive thanks to the 'love-gifts' brought by participants in the form of lectures and discussions, was symbolised by the Round Table, the image and meaning of which, together with the monument dedicated to the 'unknown spirit of the place' and the conference room full of light opening on Lago Maggiore and the mountains, inspired many of the main thinkers of the Twentieth Century. During the August Meetings, after each conference, the lecturers would give their original paper in exchange for Olga Fröbe's hospitality, as a result of which a rich collection of more than sixty Yearbooks (Jahrbücher) now bears testimony to an immense work accomplished in various fields of learning.

The influence of Carl Gustav Jung
Under the influence of the Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) in particular, the Eranos Meetings found their way towards symbolical, archetypal and mythological motives: as mentioned by Adolf Portmann and Rudolf Ritsema in 1978, these were features that seemed to refer to a distinct sub-structure of the human being, which we could call 'a-historical' or 'archaic', and to which Eranos had always been deeply bound. Notwithstanding the great influence of Jung, in whom Olga Fröbe found a fundamental shift from individualistic psychology towards the archetype world, an additional dimension was introduced through the encounter with the Sinologist Richard Wilhelm (1873-1930); it was thanks to him that Olga Fröbe had access for the first time to the Far-Eastern thought and she found a way of meeting with the extra-European cultures on a level of equality. In addition, the historian of religions, Rudolf Otto (1869-1937), introduced Eranos's founder to a human-centred conception of religion and mysticism.

Since the end of the 1930's, the program of the conferences thus concentrated on a specific archetype theme chosen from year to year, analysed and amplified by manifold perspectives thanks to the lecturers' contributions: psychologists, philosophers, theologians, orientalists, historians of religions, ethnologists, Indologists, Islamists, Egyptologists, mythologists and scientists found in the Eranos conferences and in the informal talks held around the great Round Table a place where they could meet and feel that their highly specialised creative work, as mentioned by M. Eliade in 1960, acquired a deeper meaning when being presented and re-formulated as a contribution to the knowledge of mankind.

Since the 1940's, the theme of the Conferences was man and his relation to the world, which would later flow into the idea of a new humanism resulting from Eranos's work. Close to the interest in the symbolical production of the human soul, its speech and peculiarity of expression in legends and fairy-tales, mythic images and religious figures, dreams, art, poetry and music, it appears next to the idea of possible syncretism between scientific and humanistic disciplines, and, especially in more recent years, between Eastern and Western thought
