Carl Jung ( 1875 – 1961)
Jung was a Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology.
Jung developed the concepts of the extraverted and the introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious.
Individuation is the central concept of analytical psychology. Jung considered individuation, the psychological process of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious while still maintaining their relative autonomy, to be the central process of human development.
Jung created some of the best known psychological concepts, including archetypes, the collective unconsciousness and synchronicity.
Our upcoming book “Why girls want to be Princess… and boys want to be King” is underpinned via Joseph Campbell’s “The Heroes Journey” and the unconscious Archetypes of Carl Jung.
Carl Jung quotes to ponder:
“Meaning makes a great many things endurable – perhaps everything. No science will ever replace myth, and myth cannot be made out of any science. For it is not that “God” is a myth, but that myth is the revelation of a divine life in man.” Memories, Dreams, and Reflections
“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” Memories, Dreams, Reflections
“The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.” Modern Man in Search of a Soul
“All the most powerful ideas in history go back to archetypes.” The Structure of the Psyche
“Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.”
