Example text

Analytical psychology continues to be spoken of in the singular. Descriptively speaking, it would be more accurate today to speak of an archipelago of disparate Jungian psychologies, which basically have little to do with one another, or, for that matter, with Jung. To continue to refer to Jungian psychology today in the singular – even subdivided into schools – has become an anachronism. In the first instance, Jung did not intend to form a particular school of psychotherapy, but, in line with the unitary conceptions of psychology in the late nineteenth century, intended to establish psychology in general.

The attempt to comprehend and locate Jung’s work, commenced in 1981, led me to the view that, at so many critical points, Jung was dealing with broad issues concerning the conditions of possibility of psychology and the human sciences, upon which many figures in other disciplines were also engaged. His psychology was so deeply intertwined with these networks, that it simply cannot be understood in isolation. In turn, in dealing with these issues, it has been helpful to have a point of orientation to provide some minimal delimitation of the subject.

In the present situation, the clamour for a new world-view had been raised, and unsuccessful attempts to establish one in the old style had been made, such as in Theosophy and Anthroposophy. ”34 In Jung’s conception, analytical psychology was a science, and not a world-view. But it had a special role to play in the formation of a new world-view. Its contribution lay in the importance of the recognition of unconscious contents, and in enabling a relativistic conception of a world-view, no longer regarded as an absolute.
