In his private life however as shown in the biography “Jung the Mystic: The Esoteric Dimensions of Carl Jung’s Life and Teachings” he was a strong believer in that ghosts, visions and premonitions played a critical role in the important mystery of life. This dichotomy can be traced back to his mother claiming to have the ability to communicate with the dead and herself having believed greatly in other such occult myths. Jungs life was also in his eyes plagued by paranormal phenomena like his imaginary homunculus childhood friend that he later used as proof for the collective unconscious. He also attended seances and openly wrote about mediums like his cousin Freud rejected any and all kinds of mysticism out of
If Freud had similar thoughts to Nietzsche then in fact if Nietzsche had been more proactive in Psychology instead of Philosophy he would have made the same great strides and advancements in the field of Psychology as Freud did. Another excerpt from Nietzsche from another of his books Twilight of the Idols, Or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer he shows interest in social
Freud’s Legacy Essay From when he was super young, till his death, Sigmund Freud was definitely a genius that was ahead of his time. He figured out facts that no one knew or even thought about. There has to be a reason why he is called the “father of modern psychology.” It must not have been since he was a father, so the reason has to have been that he was an astounding psychologist.
That made Freud strive to become someone that would leave everyone else in the dust. Although many people didn’t believe in what he believed in there were just as many people that did. He is well known for the ideas of the unconscious, infantile sexuality, and repression. The Psychoanalytic Theory
Sigmund Freud and Michel Foucault are two of the very influential thinkers of early twentieth century. Sigmund Freud a c is mainly renowned as the “Father of psycho analysis”. His works are mainly on the complex-system of mind and the psychoanalysis (Thornton, 2001, p. 1). Foucault says, "the goal of my work during the last twenty years has not been to analyze the phenomena of power, nor to elaborate the foundations of such an analysis. My objective, instead, has been to create a history of the different modes by which, in our culture, human beings are made subjects. "
According to Jung how an individual interacts with the world around them influences the type of attitudes and personality traits that they will incorporate, as is the example with extraverted people (those who are dominant in their social settings) and introverts (those who chose to be less dominant in a social setting) (Hopwood, A, 2014). The personal unconscious of Jung’s theory is, in essence, the same as Freud 's idea of the unconscious mind (Mcleod, S, 2014). It arises from the interactions between the collective unconscious and the individual 's development
Carl G. Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology, comes up with several theories which influenced many fields from psychology to literature and films. Jung focuses on the deep sides of the psyche and he suggests that our unconscious part is also connected to our ancestors and myths in terms of archetypal norms (Jung 261) In Jungian psychology there are various levels of psyche such as persona, anima/animus, shadow, self and many more. Among these levels, shadow plays an important role in the human psyche. Shadow is a concept where less likeable features reside in and it is the opposite of the ego (Caro iv). By being the center of the consciousness, ego is confronted with the shadow in some cases by means
Jung’s opposing view was that behaviour is driven by a life force and that sexuality was only a small aspect of that life force (Boeree 2006: 4). If, for example, one were to dream about long things Freud would have suggested that the things are representative of the phallus which leads to being representative of sex. In contrast, Jung would have had a completely different interpretation even if the dream would have clearly been about a penis. Even with such a dream, Jung would interpret it as having much to do with an unfulfilled need for
Nietzsche’s influence extended beyond philosophy to psychology. Notably, Sigmund Freud, the architect of psychoanalysis and analytic psychology founder, Carl Jung are said to be influenced by Nietzsche’s work (Brians, 1998). Although Nietzsche’s work left impressions on several other twentieth century psychologists, including Alfred Adler, Abraham Maslow and Ayn Rand, for the purpose of this essay the effect on Freud and Jung’s work will be in primary focus. Jung was fascinated by Nietzsche and his work. From Jung’s student days to him being a pioneer in the psychoanalytic movement, Jung read and developed his own thoughts regarding Nietzsche’s ideas and work (Rensma, 2012).
In his book Psychology and Alchemy, he gives a detailed account on psychosynthesis or the unification and the differentiation of psych. Jung believed that the mind started out as a whole and would function in the same way. Jung divided the mind into three levels, the Conscious, the Personal unconscious and the Collective unconscious. In this novel through Melanie there is a clear understanding of the power of the unconsciousness.
Carl Jung thought that some parts in unconscious are much bigger then sexual or aggressive emotions. In his writings about the person he explains that individuals are motivated by some unexplainable forces and forms that comes from the DNA. He believes that genetic code has a soul material that explains people’s aspiration to creative progressiveness and physical perfection.

Sigmund Freud was an Austrian psychodynamic theorist. Freud studied the unconscious mind and believed that how humans behave, their emotions and feelings all originate from the unconscious mind. He believed that the personality consisted of three parts: the id, ego and superego. • The id is the impulsive part of the personality which makes “I want” demands (Thompson & Meggit, 2004)
Jung considers this to become the process of human development. This report will also present further Carl Jung’s theory on personality development as he believes that all individuals are complex beings that possess opposing qualities such as introversion and extraversion, masculinity and femininity as well as rational and irrational drives. Carl Jung claims that an individual to fully mature and developed they must accept and embrace these all these autonomous opposing
