The story of Eros and Psyche appears in The Golden Ass, of Apuleius (born 123 CE in Algeria). It is considered Antiquity's last great myth - the closing and conclusion of paganism. Apuleius' novel was considered to be the first novel. This implies that the novel, our main form of fiction, was a pagan mutation born with this love affair at its core!
We will discuss Psyche’s other names: Anima, Soul, Seele... her relationship with Eros (aka Amor, Love, Cupid...) and with Spirit. And a surprising guest: Pan!
For James Hillman, this was The Myth of Analysis. His book will be our main reference. Participants will receive extracts and bibliography.
