Margaret Boone Rappaport, Ph.D. and Christopher J. Corbally, SJ, Ph.D.

Margaret Boone Rappaport, Ph.D., is a cultural anthropologist and Co-Founder of The Human Sentience Project. She works as a futurist, lecturer, and science fiction novelist in Tucson, Arizona. As President, Policy Research Methods, Incorporated, Falls Church, Virginia, she was contractor to federal and state agencies for over twenty years. She lectured in Sociology and Anthropology at Georgetown and George Washington Universities. She earned her doctorate at the Ohio State University in 1977. Her dissertation was on the adjustment of Cuban refugee women and families. Dr. Rappaport is a past Chair of the Ethics of the American Anthropological Association.

Christopher J. Corbally, SJ, Ph.D., is a Jesuit priest and an astronomer with the Vatican Observatory Research Group, for which he has served as Vice Director, and liaison to its headquarters at Castel Gandolfo, Italy. He is an Adjunct Associate Astronomer at the Department of Astronomy, University of Arizona and ministers to a wide variety of Catholics, including Native Americans, in Tucson, Arizona. He earned his doctorate in Astronomy at the University of Toronto in 1983 and continues investigating stars via their spectra. Dr. Corbally is a past president of the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science.

While there has been substantial discussion of Jungian archetypes over the years, there was always the possibility that these early observations had anthropological merit. In this presentation, anthropologist and student of psychological anthropologist Erika Bourguignon, Margaret Boone Rappaport and theologian/astronomer Christopher Corbally explore their newly developed hypothesis of “Matrix Thinking,” which is in some ways analogous to the notion of archetypes. Matrix Thinking is based on the most recent archaeological evidence of early humans in Africa. Remains show the first indications of scientific, religious, and artistic thinking from sites as distant as 200,000 years ago. Interestingly, the concept of “Matrix Thinking” – while it usually employs linguistic symbols because they are so easy for humans to manipulate - can also be traced to the pre-linguistic symbols found everywhere in primary process thinking, including dreams. Discussion will include some history of the relationship between Jungian models and psychological anthropology.
