On the 'Art and Science' of Personal Transformation: Some critical reflections

Educational Philosophy and Theory 44 (1):18-26 (2012)
This paper takes a critical look at the applicability of the Jungian view on individuation and imagination. While Jungian ideas can bring something fresh and necessary into educational practice, personal enthusiasm might blind us to a dissonance between educational goals and the therapeutic goal of analytical psychology. The case is made with particular attention to some work in the field of transformative learning in adult education
