Jung in the Garden of Eden

My readers may be interested in my article that just came out in the scholarly depth psychology periodical DepthInsights.  It is entitled Jung in the Garden of Eden: A Myth of the Transformation of Consciousness (click here to see it).  In it I show how the acquisition of the knowledge of good and evil in the Eden story renders that story a myth of humans gaining ego consciousness. Thus, in this aspect (and there are others), the story is about the elevation of humans, not the “fall of man.”
