: * Misunderstanding Jung

Three talks by Stephen Abrams. a psychologist, on areas in which, in his view, the thought of C. G. Jung has been misunderstood or misinterpreted.
3: Synchronicity - A Ghost of a Chance
Reputable scholars have been offended by Jung's excursions into so-called ' occultism '. But, in fact, Jung rejected telepathy and any belief in occult forces. His principle of ' synchronicity ' is the ' transcendent function ' of coming to recognise the symbolic value of one's actions, thus establishing a channel of communication between consciousness and the unconscious. It has nothing to do with magic.


Unknown: Stephen Abrams.
Unknown: C. G. Jung

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
