2 a.m.: In Other News: Shadows In Other News topics range from the conspiratorial, controversial, and esoteric near the fringe of belief systems. This week's guest is Laurie Schapira of the C.G. Jung Institute. On this show, we often speak about hidden realities that effect our daily lives or that things aren't as they seem. Carl Jung's concept of the personal shadow fits right into this elusive category. Carl Jung was a Swiss psychotherapist and psychiatrist, and the founder of analytical psychology. In 1917 he wrote in his essay "On the Psychology of the Unconscious" of the personal shadow as the other in us. Schapira is also a film maker and author of "The Cassandra Complex: Living with Disbelief." We discuss the shadow aspects as the archetype collective and from the individual perspective.
