Year End Greetings from the Philemon Foundation
A Message from Judith Harris, President
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
As the year end season is upon us, the Philemon Foundation board members join me in thanking all who have generously donated to our effort and encouraged others to become donors.
We also invite and welcome any who would care to become active supporters of our mission to prepare C. G. Jung’s unpublished works for publication according to the highest standards of academic scholarship.
Our General Editor, Professor Sonu Shamdasani, and the Philemon scholars have continued to expand and augment the Philemon Series as a major contribution to the study of analytical psychology and the life and work of C.G. Jung.
Volumes in The Philemon Series are now studied throughout the world for teaching and training the next generation of Jungian analysts. Our texts have become a major focus of public programs. They contribute to the historical understanding of Jung’s theories and practice, the development of Jung history as an academic discipline, and the wider dissemination of Jung’s thought into the culture at large, bringing new generations to the reading of Jung.
In addition to our ongoing task of translating and editing the unpublished works of Jung, this year included a Philemon session at the 2016 International Association for Analytical Psychology Congress in Kyoto. I trust you received my recent letter, which included the presentations given in Kyoto by Philemon scholars and board members to an audience of analysts.
I am pleased to introduce two new members of the Philemon Board, Audrey Punnett, (AGAP, C. G. Jung Institute, San Francisco, ISST) a Jungian adult and child analyst and Associate Clinical Professor in Psychiatry at the University of San Francisco-Fresno, and Dr. Richard Skues, a historian of psychoanalysis, and Principal Lecturer in Social Science at London Metropolitan University. A fuller description of their offices and accomplishments will be on our website and in a Spring newsletter.
We thank Craig Stephenson, our past Secretary, and the editor of On Psychological and Visionary Art: Notes from C.G. Jung’s Lecture on Gérard de Nerval. During his three-year term on our board, Craig made valuable contributions to the work of the Foundation.
The Philemon Foundation receives no royalties from the sale of works in The Philemon Series. We depend on donations from our colleagues and friends to complete these important and meaningful projects now and in the future.
We are a registered US non-profit organization, and all US taxpayers are eligible for a tax exemption under the rules of the 501(c)(3).
