LOGOS and EROS   Finding our way

Jung (2009) said that Logos has blinded and subjugated Eros, causing “the degeneration of Eros” (p. 566).  He said that “Eros is desire, longing, force, exuberance, pleasure, suffering. Where Logos is ordering and insistence. Eros is dissolution and movement. They are t wo fundamental psychic powers that form a pair of opposites, each one requiring the other” (p. 563).

 

In The Red Book these two figures were personified as scholarly fathers and pale locked up, daughters, including the figures of Elijah and Salome and even Jung and his soul. Combining words and images, this website is an attempt at the union of opposites of Logos and Eros in which words explain and define (acts that Jung’s soul equated with murder in The Red Book) and visual images with limited verbal images illustrate and animate, balancing verbal and visual literacy.
