*Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Lydia Salant sends her regrets that she will be unable to attend and will not accompany Dr. Salant in his presentation.*
Links between order and disorder take many forms in the psyche, but the Order-Disorder Paradox (ODP) stands out; it is ubiquitous both in everyday life and psychotherapy.
For instance, have you ever thought long and hard about a problem until you reached a solution that satisfied you, only to be depressed the next day, with no confidence in your decision, as though the time you’d spent thinking was
wasted? Or have you ever achieved something important only to feel much worse than before your triumph?
Nathan Schwartz-Salant will discuss the origin of the Order-Disorder Paradox, and will demonstrate this through scientific and mythological points of view that help reveal the mystery and transformative value of disorder in our lives.
Friday’s presentation will focus on Jung’s “visions” following a heart attack in 1944.
In Saturday’s workshop, in which audience participation will be welcomed, the ODP will be elaborated with clinical, mythological, and alchemical material.
Nathan Schwartz-Salant, Ph.D.
Nathan is a Jungian analyst, trained in Zurich, Switzerland (1970), also holds a Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences. In this lecture, based upon the subject matter of his latest book, The Order-Disorder Paradox, Nathan blends rational-scientific approaches, mythological consciousness and the aperspectival awareness—a fourth dimensional consciousness introduced by philosopher Jean Gebser in 1949. He has been a psychoanalyst for the last 50 years, practicing for over forty years in New York City and in New Jersey. He is married to Lydia Salant who shares this presentation with him, contributes clinical material, and, especially, the aperspectival point of view.
