Furthermore, it is shown that these archetypes can be restored to consciousness by the primitive analogical mode of thinking peculiar to dreams. Abstracts of the Collected Works of C.G. Intellectually the Self is no more than a psychological concept, a construct that serves to express an unknowable essence which we cannot grasp as such, since by definition it transcends our powers of comprehension. The great problems of life — sexuality, of course, among others — are always related to the primordial images of the collective unconscious. 2nd ed., Princeton University Press, 1966. Scanned and formatted by Don Williams, 11. His shyness has vanished, objects have taken on a seductive glamour, and the world wears a new face ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 81, But meanwhile the spirits of the extraverted youth are ebbing lower and lower. It [Dreams] leads straight to the deepest personal secrets, and is, therefore, an invaluable instrument in the hand of the physician and educator of the soul. Just as the reward of a correct interpretation is an uprush of life, so an incorrect one dooms them to deadlock, resistance, doubt, and mutual desiccation ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 189, A very large number of accidents of every description, more than people would ever guess, are of psychic causation, ranging from trivial mishaps like stumbling, banging oneself, burning one’s fingers, etc., to car smashes and catastrophes in the mountains: all these may be psychically caused and may sometimes have been preparing for weeks or even months ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 194, I have examined many cases of this kind, and often I could point to dreams which showed signs of a tendency to self-injury weeks beforehand. If it was no easy task to describe what is meant by the anima, the difficulties become almost insuperable when we set out to describe the psychology of the animus. Everything individual in him goes under, i.e., is doomed to repression. The unconscious is seen as acting in a compensatory fashion, creating the seeds of future conscious thoughts. 2nd ed., Princeton University Press, 1966. He can enjoy the archaism and infantilism of his unconscious fantasies without loss to himself, for all responsibility is laid at the Master’s door ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 263, Through his deification of the Master, the disciple, apparently without noticing it, waxes in stature; moreover, does he not possess the great truth not his own discovery, of course, but received straight from the Master’s hands?
Jung, Carl Gustav Jung Volume 7 of Works, Carl Gustav Jung: Author: Carl Gustav Jung: Translated by: Richard Francis Carrington Hull: Edition: reprint: Publisher: Psychology Press, 1992: ISBN: 0415080282, 9780415080286: Length: 349 pages: Subjects The golden apples drop from the same tree, whether they be gathered by an imbecile locksmith’s apprentice or by a Schopenhauer. It was a delusion: the conscious mind has not become master of the unconscious, and the anima has forfeited her tyrannical power only to the extent that the ego was able to come to terms with the unconscious. 17 Development of Psychology_jp2.zip, Vol. Often, indeed, a false ambition survives, in that an old man wants to be a youth again, or at least feels he must behave like one, although in his heart he can no longer make believe. She was still in her nebulous infantile world and had not yet discovered the real world at all ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 248, This is roughly the way things go in most cases, if the analysis is carried far enough. The urge to freedom beats upon the weakening barriers of morality: we are in a state of temptation, we want and do not want. That is why morality is found at all levels of society ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 30, It is a notorious fact that the morality of a society as a whole is in inverse ratio to its size; for the greater the aggregation of individuals, the more the individual factors are blotted out, and with them morality, which rests entirely on the moral sense of the individual and the freedom necessary for this ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 240, The spirit of these orgies contributed not a little towards the development of the stoic ideal of asceticism in the innumerable sects and philosophical schools of the last century before Christ, which produced from the polytheistic chaos of that epoch the twin ascetic religions of Mithraism and Christianity ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 17, But the most important method of getting at the pathogenic conflicts is, as Freud was the first to show, through the analysis of dreams ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 20, Hence every man is, in a certain sense, unconsciously a worse man when he is in society than when acting alone; for he is carried by society and to that extent relieved of his individual responsibility ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 240, Any large company composed of wholly admirable persons has the morality and intelligence of an unwieldy, stupid, and violent animal. This method is still occasionally employed, but compared with the present technique it is primitive and often unsatisfactory ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 20, This [identification with the collective psyche] amounts to an acceptance of “godlikeness,” but now exalted into a system. 7. Freud’s theory of repression of sexuality as the foundation of neurosis is evaluated and it is concluded that, although it is grounded on a true and factual principle, it is, nevertheless, one-sided and exclusive. The effects of the unconscious upon consciousness. Naturally, the simple soul believes that his parents are as he sees them ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 294, Nevertheless, the feeling that it “belongs” is not at first sufficiently strong for the complex to be sensed as a subjective content of consciousness. 349 p. (p. 227-241). ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 252, The predominance of unconscious influences, together with the associated disintegration of the persona and the deposition of the conscious mind from power, constitute a state of psychic disequilibrium which, in analytical treatment, is artificially induced for the therapeutic purpose of resolving a difficulty that might block further development. 78. 7. Energy necessarily depends on a preexisting polarity, without which there could be no energy. ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 67, It is the duty of one who goes his own way to inform society of what he finds on his voyage of discovery, be it cooling water for the thirsty or the sandy wastes of unfruitful error. The bigger the organization, the more unavoidable is its immorality and blind stupidity ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 240, Society, by automatically stressing all the collective qualities in its individual representatives, puts a premium on mediocrity, on everything that settles down to vegetate in an easy, irresponsible way ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 240, Individuality will inevitably be driven to the wall.
For, at the bottom, Eros is a superhuman power which, like nature herself, allows itself to be conquered and exploited as though it were impotent. In the image above, we see Vishvarupa, as the cosmic Person. Or, I said to myself, was it rather the case that the unconscious was trying to create a god out of the person of the doctor, as it were to free a vision of God from the veils of the personal, so that the transference to the person of the doctor was no more than a misunderstanding on the part of the conscious mind, a stupid trick played by “sound common sense”? This process is such a general reaction that, in Genesis 2 : 17 , eating of the tree of knowledge is represented as a deadly sin. Animus opinions are invariably collective, and they override individuals and individual judgments in exactly the same way as the anima thrusts her emotional anticipations and projections between man and wife ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 334, If the woman happens to be pretty, these animus opinions have for the man something rather touching and childlike about them, which makes him adopt a benevolent, fatherly, professorial manner. The five prefaces introducing this volume indicate that the original work, […] The personal value lies entirely in the philosophical achievement, not in the primary vision. Individuation. The symptom is therefore an indirect expression of unrecognized desires which, when conscious, come into violent conflict with our moral convictions ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 438, This [childish] apprehension shows how little trust we place in the efficacy of our moral principles. Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 18, Unfortunately far too many of us talk about a man only as it would be desirable for him to be, never about the man as he really is.
We should never identify ourselves with reason, for man is not and never will be a creature of reason alone, a fact to be noted by all pedantic culture-mongers. At all events, in our sense of the word it is not transitory; for the same physiological and psychological processes that have been man’s for hundreds of thousands of years still endure, instilling into our inmost hearts this profound intuition of the “eternal” continuity of the living. It is suggested that the traditional method of dream analysis reduction must be followed by synthesis when the symbols originate in the collective unconscious. Sometimes these opinions take the form of so-called sound common sense, sometimes they appear as principles which are like a travesty of education: “People have always done it like this,” or “Everybody says it is like that” ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 332, It goes without saying that the animus is just as often projected as the anima. It is the same with the individual; and just as the idea of a world civilization received a fearful correction at the hands of war, so the individual must often learn in his life that so-called “disposable” energies are not his to dispose. From all this we city-dwellers, we modern machine-minders, are far removed. Similarly, feelings of disorientation, of dizziness and the like, may appear along with symptoms of inflation ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 250, The forces that burst out of the collective psyche has a confusing and blinding effect. This impropriety is the exclusive prerogative of man, whose consciousness and free will can occasionally loose themselves contra naturam from their roots in animal nature. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through […]. The snag about a radical conversion into one’s opposite is that one’s former life suffers repression and thus produces just as unbalanced a state as existed before, when the counterparts of the conscious virtues and values were still repressed and unconscious. If I were to attempt to put in a nutshell the difference between man and woman in this respect, i.e., what it is that characterizes the animus as opposed to the anima, I could only say this: as the anima produces moods, so the animus produces opinions: and as the moods of a man issue from a shadowy background, so the opinions of a woman rest on equally unconscious prior assumptions ~Carl Jung, CW 7, Para 331, Animus opinions very often have the character of solid convictions that are not lightly shaken, or of principles whose validity is seemingly unassailable. 131.
