| SPECIAL EVENTS 2021 |
The Eranos Foundation is pleased to invite you to a study meeting, on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm, on the theme "Rebirth to New Life. Two Lessons at Eranos: Jung and Buonaiuti", on the occasion of the presentation of the first two volumes of the "Eranos Classics" series, released by the publishing house Aragno*Eranos Ascona. The first essay, Rebirth, includes the text of the lecture given by psychologist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) at the 1939 Eranos Conference: a paper, edited by Fabio Merlini and Riccardo Bernardini in agreement with the Foundation of the Works of C. G. Jung, previously unpublished in its original version. The second essay, Palingenesis, Resurrection, and Immortality in Primitive Christianity, presents instead the original text of the conference given by priest and historian of Christianity Ernesto Buonaiuti (1881-1946) at Eranos in 1939: a document, edited by Adriano Fabris, previously unpublished in Italian and in English. The two books, from different points of view, question the phenomenon of the transformation of the individual: an issue that crosses history and cultures and that also affects moments of disorientation such as the current one, in which the crisis situation intervenes to question the 'rules of the game.' What does it mean, then, to face a process of transformation? In what sense, today, can we speak of rebirth? In the context of this initiative, organized within the "Philosophical Days 2020" of Philosophie.ch - Swiss Portal for Philosophy, these and other questions will be addressed by Adriano Fabris, Full Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Pisa; Gianfranco Bonola, former Full Professor of History of Religions at the University of Roma Tre; Fabio Merlini, President of the Eranos Foundation; and Riccardo Bernardini, Scientific Secretary of the Eranos Foundation.
We regret to have to inform you of the decision to postpone the study meeting, "Rebirth to New Life. Two Lessons at Eranos: Jung and Buonaiuti," until 2021. The persistence of the COVID-19 pandemic that we are witnessing, the great uncertainty of the global health situation, and the inevitable limitations to mobility that will be implemented in the coming months convince us that it is appropriate, for the safety of all participants (listeners and speakers), to postpone the congress until the following year. Information about the the new dates in 2021 will be made available as soon as possible. Trusting in everyone's understanding, we would like to take this opportunity to send you, on behalf of the Eranos Foundation, the most cordial greetings with our shared hopes for a forthcoming exit from the current emergency situation.
