Exploring the Life of the Soul

Lecture by John Riker

Thursday, February 8 2018 – 6:30-8:30 pm

John Riker will explore what brings the soul to life and what brings its sense of liveliness down.  On this journey he will intertwine the rich theories of the self in contemporary self psychology and Plato with Jung’s concept of the self, especially working with the notion of how eros might be at the heart of the self.

John Riker has been a professor of philosophy at Colorado College for 50 years.  He has won numerous awards there, including being named professor of the year a record 4 times.  He has published four books inter-relating philosophy and psychoanalysis, including his last published earlier this year, Exploring the Life of the Soul: Philosophical Reflections on Self Psychology and Psychoanalysis.
