Dr. Carl Jung

Journey Into Unus Mundus

Dr Z's "The Journey into Unus Mundus" (since 1996) has been devoted to introducing readers to a few of the basic concepts behind the ideas of Dr. Carl G. Jung, Depth Psychology, Archetypes & Symbols, Healing of Soul, and Dreams.

As shocking as it is (to me), a lot of folks don't have the slightest clue as to:

  • who in the heck the Swiss psychiatrist, Dr. Carl G. Jung was...
  • or what Jung's particular "school" and/or "branch" of Depth Psychology is all about...

Given half a chance, most anyone interested in the growth, maturation, and healing of Soul will find Jung's ideas and theories of the Unconscious and the Psyche to be fascinating. Heck... they might even (like me) feel as if they've finally "come home"...

And for those of you surfing through that are already well acquainted with Jung and Jungian thought? No promises... but the Journey into Unus Mundus might even manage to have a surprise or two waiting for you.

Hear C. G. Jung speak about whether or not he believes in God.

Part of Fortune What was Jung's astrological Part of Fortune?

Why Jung? After Carl G Jung's death Karl Kerényi wrote: "If I now, looking back upon the phenomenon C.G. Jung, put into words what was most characteristic about him, also on the basis of personal contacts during the last twenty years, then it is taking the soul for real. For no psychologist of our time, the psyche possessed such a concreteness and importance as for him." (K., Wege und Weggenossen, vol. 2, München [Langen Müller] 1988, p. 346, Giegerich transl.)

CG Jung quotes:

“You are a slave of what you need in your soul." The Red Book

"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

"Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other."
On the Psychology of the Unconscious

"All the most powerful ideas in history go back to archetypes." The Structure of the Psyche

Please note: The scattered information and ideas shared on these few pages are meant to be little more than a very small, but delicious taste of Jung's ideas... and it is certainly not meant to be a scholarly treatise and/or final word on any of the concepts briefly shared.
