The Institute of Cultural Studies Raven was initiated in May 2016. Initially it was called The Institute for Archetypal and Religious Studies. In December 2016 it changed the name to Raven – The Institute of Cultural Studies which reflected the broadening of the scope on Institute’s interests.
Our understanding of cultural phenomena is grounded in C. G. Jung’s analytical psychology and its clinical applications of Jungian psychoanalysis. However it is not limited by it. We are interested in dialogue between various scientific disciplines and different cultures. We seek common grounds between psychology, philosophy, sociology, literature and art. It is them that make past historical events and phenomena of the liquid contemporary times comprehensible.
The Institute publishes Jungian online magazine e-jungian.com and its Polish version e-jungian.pl, depth psychology and cultural studies articles, and organizes social events: seminars and discussions club meetings locally.
