Guest Speaker, introduced by Anne Sims

Dr. David Johnston, Ph.D., opened a practice in psychology after serving in the Canadian diplomatic service. His theme concerned the prophetic voices of Jung and how Jungian psychology is echoed in the writings of Tolkien. Carl Jung, 1865-1961, originally worked with Sigmund Freud but founded a separate philosophy of psychology after 1912. He particularly developed the idea of the unconscious being both personal and inherited experience, thus the collective unconscious. He later applied his theories to historical studies of religion and dreams, and he had visions of Philomen, an early Christian figure. J.R. Tolkien, 1892-1973, developed a phantasy world involving Christian, Nordic and Celtic myths with a theme of choice between good and evil, and the lust for power. Jungian psychology uses the number four to symbolize wholeness, and Tolkien uses this symbol repeatedly, e.g., the 4 orders of mankind: priest, king, trader and servant. David illustrated many of his points with illustrations from Tolkien.
