INDIVIDUATION AND DEATH in DEAD MAN

Rick Overman, Psy.D., Jungian Analyst

 

"The experience of the self is always a defeat for the ego." -- Jung, (CW14, 778)

"If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise." -- Wm. Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

In order for psychological individuation to occur, the ego must face the reality of its own death. Jim Jarmusch’s highly acclaimed but relatively unknown film Dead Man offers us a starkly grim, darkly humorous and deeply symbolic vision of one man’s journey into the endless night. Johnny Depp plays the ironically named William Blake, a vapid young accountant who has no idea he has the name of a great visionary poet or that he is dying. Having lost his heart and his imagination, his death is impending. Reflecting our culture’s mechanical soullessness, Blake experiences his demise as a journey into a hell of meaningless destruction and heartless violence. He is guided by a poetry-loving Tricksterish Native American with the Zen-like name of "Nobody." Nobody offers Blake many possibilities for his transformation in this liminal passage through a strange and beautiful landscape, the mythical West, to "the place where all the spirits came from and all the spirits return."

Recommended Reading: Blake, Jung and the Collective Unconscious by June Singer.

Learning Objectives: Following the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand why, in Jungian psychology, the second half of life holds such importance;

  2. Define individuation and understand this Jungian goal in relationship to death; and

  3. Describe how imagination and how the Trickster can guide individuation both in one’s own life and, in the case of clinicians, in the lives of clients.

Rick L. Overman, Psy.D., is a licensed psychologist and Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice in Ft. Lauderdale and Boca Raton. Dr. Overman is a senior training analyst for the Florida Association of Jungian Analysts and a former President of the CJSSF.
