Jung wrote, “Where love reigns, there is no will to power; and where the will to power is paramount, love is lacking.” (CW7, par. 22) A simple, verifiable statement, we might say, but what happens when the will to power through several seductive guises such as fashion, social media, and so-called technological superiority threatens the very existence of that “questionable fellow”, Eros. This lecture explores his struggles for survival in a society increasingly addicted to one-upmanship and celebration of sentimentality.
