Breaking Jungian Psychology out of the ghetto of intellectual containment and into the literary and civilizational mainstream.

A book review of Evan Hanks book A Mid-Life Perspective: Conversations with the Unconscious: A Subjective Study of Science, Religion, and Consciousness

Individuation, the blossoming of individuality, is one of the major themes of Jungian psychology. Jung’s empirical observations of his own and his patients’ interactions with the unconscious contents of the psyche led him to conclude that…

The Dionysian Apollonian Dichotomy

The spirit has at least two significant attributes. It is amaterial. Second, it gives order to chaos/matter. Dionysos represents a part of the amaterial aspect of the spirit. Apollo  represents some part of that aspect of spirit which enters the material realm and gives order to matter/materiality. These are two aspects of the same phenomenon. They are not opposite tendencies at war with each other, as Nietzsche maintained but distinctive and purposive aspects of the Spirit that…

Due to his faith Dostoevsky incorporated a concept of wholeness with his empiricism from the gitgo

"They find me a new and original spirit in that I proceed by analysis and not synthesis,i.e. I plunge into the depths and while analyzing every atom I search out the whole." Dostoevsky[1]

On the other hand Jung had to build his concept of wholeness from his empirical studies. Ergo Dostoevsky was able to place  psychological revelations into a detective story accessible to all. Whereas Jung formulated and built his ideas on wholeness in an intellectual construct which…

"natural individuation is arrested during neurosis"

Max Winther quote from his essay, The Happy Neurotic Island of Modernity and Technology

http://mlwi.magix.net/beastrev.htm

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well this one line from Mats could ultimately launch a thousand books. The power and potential embedded within a mere six words is stunning. This is the future of Jungian Psychology

Jung's Silence in regard to Dostoevsky

Over the years I have often wondered why Jung rarely if ever wrote about Dostoevsky. How could one of the most preeminent psychological thinkers of the 20th Century fail to have recognized the greatest psychological thinker of the 19th Century. Freud was certainly aware of him. Did Jung either consciously or unconsciously elect to omit the mention of Dostoevsky in his writings.  …
