About Jung and Analytical Psychology
Gustav Jung (1875-1961), a Swiss psychiatrist, was the founder of Analytical Psychology.
Jung incorporated into his work a wide range of interests, such as comparative
religions, mythology, and alchemy, and place special emphasis on the importance
of symbols. Focusing on the analysis of dreams and their symbols as a way to gain
knowledge of the unconscious, he showed that awareness and acceptance of the unconscious
can lead to a healing sense of wholeness.
Jung introduced such terms
as collective unconscious, individuation, complexes, archetype, extrovert and
introvert into both psychological and everyday language. After his death,
Analytical Psychology developed internationally to fit modern needs.
