How big a heart do you have to swallow and stomach the immensity of this seminal work How big a mind can you stretch to reimagine the size of the Jung s thorough and vast reach of lateral anthropological knowledge Finally how strong a faith do you have in your socio cultural and cognitive structure to sustain the challenges that will hammer on your inherited systems once Jung connects it with the communal subconsciousEven the Koran was not spared For me it fortified my faith Because I ve always thought that if my faith in my particular religion has a smidge of credibility then it would have to be connected with other cultures and societies That the Khidir character can be connected with the nymphs of the Pacific ocean the gods of Atlantis and the demons in South America makes him real and closer to heartThat the world s mythological languages and systems connect with each other makes it even important to stop fussing what is ours and theirs and celebrate instead what is common amongst man across the generations and bibles

FREE READ Î Zwei Schriften Über Analytische Psychologie Über die Psychologie des Unbewusten In this his most famous and influential work Carl Jung made a dramatic break from the psychoanalytic tradition established by his mentor Sigmund Freud Rather than focusing on psychopathology and its symptoms the Swiss psychiatrist studied dreams mythology and literature to define the universal patterns of the psycheIn Psychology of the Unconscious Jung seeks a symbolic meaning and purpo. I ve been reading Jung since I was a teenager I was very early on taken by subjects like synchronicity archetypes and the collective unconscious In my view the facticity of the preceding is evident for anyone who has studied mythology and dream symbolism I ve been aware of the mythologicalreligious content of my own dreams for as long as I can remember It s in the elucidation of the language of the subconscious where Jung was a pioneer I m not always in agreement with him about everything I ll mention some of the cases of disagreement below but even my disagreements do not detract from how formative and pioneering Jung s thought was for not just psychology but for philosophy and for understanding the human subconscious in generalI wanted to start reading Jung again because after going through Schelling it is apparent to me that Schelling s stance on mythology was probably influential for psychology in general and for Jung in particular Jung does in fact cite Schelling s Philosophy of Mythology once in this book I found that interesting This work actually marked the schism between Freud and Jung Freud increasingly saw the libido as a sexual drive whereas Jung saw the libido as contextual Jung variously described the libido as energy drive passion motivation etc Jung saw the sex drive as only one of a number of possible applications of the libido This difference with Freud ultimately drove a wedge between them This book pretty much sealed the separation of the Freudian and Jungian schools of psychology Obviously I m way Jungian than Freudian I give credit to Freud but he became too dogmatic in his views Jung was open to letting his experience as a psychologist mold his thinking That doesn t mean Jung wasn t prone to some of the ignorance and prejudice that was ubiuitous at the time Jung s belief that there are lower races should be seen in the Jungian context though He saw certain peoples as functioning in a primal ie lower state of human development These peoples are analogous to the time of adolescence of a specific human being I m not sure he saw these so called lower races as inherently inferior because he also saw rightly that it is in these cultures that mythology and symbolism is often the richest The communal collective unconscious of certain peoples may contain some of the richest mythology because of how recent the connection is to a primitive civilization Indeed one of the major epiphanies of Jung was when a non white patient attempted to show him the phallus of the sun At the time Jung thought that it was simply the ravings of a disturbed man until he was reading up on Mithraism and the same mythological descriptions of the sun occurred in a text published later Jung mentioned in this book and in a number of other places how important this revelation of subconscious archetypes was for him I concur that the odds of the same mythological description occurring in the Mithraic text and in the ravings of this man is almost nil if one appeals to coincidence If Jung didn t see all humanity as interconnected he would not have found this insight so universally applicable I do not want to seem as if I am excusing Jung s prejudices only clarifying the context that they occurred in One should also note that this book is a very early work He almost certainly did change his views on certain things One example I can cite is that here Jung euates introversion almost exclusively with psychosis He sees introversion as incest inversion a desire to return to the mother Later on Jung didn t see introversion as ipso facto a sign of a psychological complex I m an extreme introvert so I take exception to the idea that my introversion is necessarily a mental illness Not that I am not eccentric and slightly neurotic in my own way but my introversion isn t an illness There is a lot to suggest that Jung later changed his views on introversion One can hope that he also changed some of his prejudicial views on peopleJung seemed to have been consumed with the visions of a certain Miss Frank Miller for pretty much the entirety of this book Apparently she was a poet given to visions and mania Jung spends pretty much the whole of this book on her poetry and visions He sees evidence of a psychosis in her visions and in her poetry He notes the mythological and archetypal components in both but he definitely saw evidence of a complex in both as well I ve being studying mysticism and religion for years so I am not inclined to trivialize someone s visions and poetic imagination as the ravings of a disturbed mind necessarily Jung s breakdown of the mythological aspects of Miss Miller s visions and poetry is interesting even though I think he has a tendency to trivialize something that could ve been spiritually significant for this woman Not surprisingly Jung also sees religion and Christianity specifically as containing unconscious projections of the libido Once again I ve been studying religion too long to trivialize it as simply a matter of human psychological projection Jung may have changed his views on the preceding later but I know that his euating the shadow self with an evil that needed to be integrated is something I have always taken issue with It s not that I deny the existence of the shadow Indeed Christianity never denied there was such a thing I simply deny that it can be integrated as an evil Evil can t function as a unity so integrating it is a contradiction in terms This is one thing I ve always opposed Jung onThere s some sections in here I consider interesting and I d like to uote those Thankfully this book is in the public domain so it won t be as difficult The following is interesting because while it still contains negative appraisals of Christianity it also has some positive onesThe people of this age had grown ripe for identification with the Logos word become flesh for the founding of a new fellowship united by one idea in the name of which people could love each other and call each other brothers The meaning of those cults I speak of Christianity and Mithracism is clear it is a moral restraint of animal impulses The dynamic appearance of both religions betrays something of that enormous feeling of redemption which animated the first disciples and which we today scarcely know how to appreciate for these old truths are empty to us Most certainly we should still understand it had our customs even a breath of ancient brutality for we can hardly realize in this day the whirlwinds of the unchained libido which roared through the ancient Rome of the Caesars The civilized man of the present day seems very far removed from that He has become merely neurotic So for us the necessities which brought forth Christianity have actually been lost since we no longer understand their meaning We do not know against what it had to protect us For enlightened people the so called religiousness has already approached very close to a neurosis In the past two thousand years Christianity has done its work and has erected barriers of repression which protect us from the sight of our own sinfulness The elementary emotions of the libido have come to be unknown to us for they are carried on in the unconscious therefore the belief which combats them has become hollow and empty Let whoever does not believe that a mask covers our religion obtain an impression for himself from the appearance of our modern churches from which style and art have long since fled It s interesting that Jung notes poetry as containing inherently unconscious archetypal imagery I would add that lyrics to songs also ualify in the same regard While mining Miss Miller s poetry and visions for unconscious symbolism and signs of psychoses Jung cited her recounting of one of her visions After an evening of care and anxiety I lay down to sleep at about half past eleven I felt excited and unable to sleep although I was very tired There was no light in the room I closed my eyes and then I had the feeling that something was about to happen The sensation of a general relaxation came over me and I remained as passive as possible Lines appeared before my eyes sparks and shining spirals followed by a kaleidoscopic review of recent trivial occurrences I found the details of the above vision fascinating because it reminds me of the lyrics of a song by New Order After the suicide of Joy Division s frontman Ian Curtis the rest of the members of Joy Division went on to form New Order Their first abum Movement was haunted by the death Ian Curtis There are lyrics in the song The Him that remind me of the above visionSmall boy kneels humble in a great hall He pays penance to the air above him White circles black lines surround meReborn so plain my eyes seeThis is the reason that I came hereTo be so near to such a personI m so tired I m so tiredI always found the part about white circles and black lines interesting The song obviously has a lot to do with Ian Curtis I find it interesting that a similar vision was had by this woman spirals lines and the reference to being tired is also interesting It s entirely possible that Bernard Sumner or whoever wrote the lyrics had read this book and was influenced by it unconsciously but I think it s doubtful This was a very interesting early work of Jung s I certainly recommend it This contains many of the elements that we associate with Jung and the theories he would continue to develop the rest of his life I give it around 4 stars Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious is a superior work but this is still very good A New Leash on Love just psychology but for philosophy and for understanding the human subconscious in generalI wanted to start reading Jung again because after going through Schelling it is
