Many are unaware that CG Jung’s ideas were instrumental in the creation of Alcoholic Anonymous. Even less know that Jung and Bill Wilson, the co-founder of AA, corresponded late in their lives. Their exchange provided unique insights into addiction, recovery, and the nature of evil. What we gained is the Gnostic solution to the problem of theodicy, as well as the means for an alchemical redemption every person can attain.
Astral Guest — David Schoen, author of The War of the Gods in Addiction: C.G. Jung, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Archetypal Evil.
As a bonus, Scott Smith, author of God Reconsidered, joins us for a Trimorphic Paranoia, sharing his own experiences with alcoholism, Jungian solutions, and cosmic iniquity.
