In this lecture, I am going to begin by presenting classical understandings of Active Imagination and the Transcendent Function. I then go on to present a different perspective on the Transcendent Function based on my analytical practice. To illustrate my thinking about this material I will review ideas about Jungian Analysis and the Transcendent Function as evidenced in online or Skype-based analyses. The technology that permits an online analysis also presents, for the first time in Analytical Psychology, a clear demonstration of the Transcendent Function to both the analyst and the analysand.
