zojaimage Faculty: Luigi Zoja, PhD with Tom Singer, MD as discussant

Dr. Luigi Zoja, former President of the International Association for Analytical Psychology, will be visiting San Francisco and giving a guest lecture at the Institute on his current work on collective paranoia, the topic of his forthcoming book due out at the end of the year. This work is the culmination of ten years of preparation. Dr. Zoja will discuss collective shadow projections in history, their archetypal roots and psychological dimensions, and their manifestations in prejudices, wars, and genocides. He wrote, “Among my essays, this is the one I am most attached to because of its attempt to link archetypes and history with very urgent problems from nowadays.” Tom Singer, MD, will introduce Dr. Zoja and serve as a discussant.

Luigi Zoja, PhD, is a past President of the IAAP. He holds a Diploma in Analytical Psychology from the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich, and maintains a clinical practice in Milan. His written work, including English titles The Global Nightmare: Jungian Perspectives on September 11; Ethics and Analysis; and Violence in History, Culture and the Psyche, has been published in fifteen languages.
