Man and his Symbols conceived and edited by Carl The first and only work in which C a r l G. Jung, the world-famous Swiss psy- chologist, explains to . Man and his Symbols Carl G. Jung and M.-L von Franz, Joseph L Henderson, Jolande Jacobi, Aniela Jaffe Aldus Books London in association with W. H. Allen . Man and His Symbols owes its existence to one of Jung's own dreams. The great psychologist dreamed that his work was understood by a wide public, rather.

If you want to find some meaning and purpose, then your job is to find, once again, coherence, by first understanding the messages your unconscious sends you through your dreams and then use them as your guiding light.

Jung writes: I have spent more than half a century in investigating natural symbols, and I have come to the conclusion that dreams and their symbols are not stupid and meaningless. On the contrary, dreams provide the most interesting information for those who take the trouble to understand their symbols. The results, it is true, have little to do with such worldly concerns as downloading and selling. Henderson Joseph L. According to him, it is Jung who taught us to not only rediscover our ancient symbolic history but also to think of it in terms of ever-important ever-presence.

For example, we still celebrate Easter, Christmas, Halloween and many other holidays in a way which is profoundly riddled with symbolism; it is a sad affair that we have forgotten to understand its meaning, since, as Jung has discovered, it is still relevant to us.

Because, more or less, these images are as real and as vital to us as, say, our hearts and brains; these images are actually organic. The truth is, he says, that they are collectively-inherited unconscious ideas and patterns which are universally present in individual psyches. Individuation, if successful, is precisely that: the process of integration of the innate elements of our personalities these archetypes into a well-functioning whole.

It is an innate need for self-realization that leads us to explore and, subsequently, integrate these disowned parts; a failure to do so will result in neuroticism, manifested through psychosis, phobias, or depression.

All of these, if we are to believe Jung, are the result of us not being interested enough to get to know with our deeper selves. Our inner core is the Self — and not the Ego; the Ego is merely the bridge between our unconscious and the real world; it makes real what the psyche imagines; so, in a nutshell, it is nothing more than the outer side of our psyche. The Self always has some kind of a purpose; and our Ego, during our lives, has to recognize this purpose and works toward its realization.

Think of this purpose as destiny: as far as Jungians are concerned, you are preprogrammed to become something; self-realization is actually like solving a puzzle: you need to interpret your purpose correctly, and then walk the path toward making it a reality. Only then your Ego will deflate and make room for your purpose; however, individuation is not narcissism, but the opposite of it.

Man and His Symbols by CARL G. JUNG

The Animal Soon afterward, humans moved on to drawing and redrawing another important symbolic motif: the animals; in fact, almost all of the cave paintings you know are animal representations. In other words, early humans realized — of course, not consciously — that they are divided, and that one part of them is still nothing more but a wild animal. Jung himself thought of the Circle as a representation of the Self-archetype; when it is combined with a Circle usually the latter is within the former , Analytic Psychologists tend to think of these images as visual representations of our duality — the circle representing our psyche and the square our body.

Modern Art Ever wondered why modern Western Art is neither realistic nor comprehensible? The more they did this, the more modern art came to reflect the obscure, the ambiguous and the hard-to-decipher unconscious as a counterbalance.

In a way, art is not realistic because we are too realistic. The E-mail message field is required. Please enter the message. Please verify that you are not a robot.
