Rebirth to New Life. Two Lessons at Eranos: Jung and Buonaiuti

The Eranos Foundation is pleased to invite you to a study meeting, on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm, on the theme "Rebirth to New Life. Two Lessons at Eranos: Jung and Buonaiuti", on the occasion of the presentation of the first two volumes of the "Eranos Classics" series, released by the publishing house Aragno*Eranos Ascona. The first essay, Rebirth, includes the text of the lecture given by psychologist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) at the 1939 Eranos Conference: a paper, edited by Fabio Merlini and Riccardo Bernardini in agreement with the Foundation of the Works of C. G. Jung, previously unpublished in its original version. The second essay, Palingenesis, Resurrection, and Immortality in Primitive Christianity, presents instead the original text of the conference given by priest and historian of Christianity Ernesto Buonaiuti (1881-1946) at Eranos in 1939: a document, edited by Adriano Fabris, previously unpublished in Italian and in English. The two books, from different points of view, question the phenomenon of the transformation of the individual: an issue that crosses history and cultures and that also affects moments of disorientation such as the current one, in which the crisis situation intervenes to question the 'rules of the game.' What does it mean, then, to face a process of transformation? In what sense, today, can we speak of rebirth? In the context of this initiative, organized within the "Philosophical Days 2020" of Philosophie.ch - Swiss Portal for Philosophy, these and other questions will be addressed by Adriano Fabris, Full Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Pisa; Gianfranco Bonola, former Full Professor of History of Religions at the University of Roma Tre; Fabio Merlini, President of the Eranos Foundation; and Riccardo Bernardini, Scientific Secretary of the Eranos Foundation.

For the hygiene regulations provided for the containment of the spread of COVID-19, participation in the conference is limited to 50 listeners. For this reason, registration is strictly necessary. From the dedicated web page of Philosophie.ch - Swiss Portal for Philosophy, clicking on "Subscribe" it will be possible to subscribe to the single initiative.

In the Auditorium of Monte Verità, the use of the mask is mandatory. Afterwards, unless further regulations related to the evolution of the health emergency, there will be an aperitif for all those present, kindly offered by the Municipality of Ascona.
