HW due 11/5: Thus Spoke Zarathustra and Jung

1. Thus Spoke Zarathustra–Be ready to discuss tomorrow!
2. Carl Jung–Hermann Hesse’s Steppenwolf is the manifestation of Jungian influence (among other things), so it is imperative that you be familiar with Carl Jung. Research Carl Jung focusing on (but not limiting yourself to) the following: collective unconscious, anima/animus, mother archetype, shadow, complex, ego, self, persona. Additionally, research Carl Jung’s influence on Hermann Hesse. You must take notes in your binder (2 pages). As we read Steppenwolf, you will be expected to make connections to Carl Jung. Here is a good starting point. Let me stress, developing control of Jung is not optional; you are expected to develop control and demonstrate that control when discussing and writing about Steppenwolf.
3. Steppenwolf–If you can, please purchase your own copy. It’s a text that you will want to own (I think). Try and pick it up this weekend!
4. Let’s not forget Schopenhauer! We will come back to him on Monday just before we dive into Nietzsche.
