Jung Theories

Most of the Jung's theories regarding the structure and exploration of the psyche are covered on this site through themes and key-concepts (see the summary on the left)

First of all, you should know that Jung's approach of psyche has many sources of inspiration. We list some of them below:

    1. Jung's experience with the psychotics at the Burgholzli hospital under the guidance of Dr. Bleuler, mostly known because of his work on schizophrenia;

    2. Jung's own experiences with the association method;

    3. Jung's cooperation with Freud, and his experience with the Freudian psychoanalysis, including the dream interpretation technique;

    4. Jung's exploration of the unconscious after he left Freud and the psychoanalytic association during his own confrontation with the archetypes and the Self;

    5. The clear insights gained from his studies on alchemical and astrological works, I Ching and the Eastern philosophies as well.

Jung and Dreams cover A great deal of inspiration brought Jung in regard to the dream interpretation method and technique. First of all it is the compensation concept applied to dreams and the prospective feature. On the plane of interpretation it is the amplification method. When we deal with some dreams - stated Jung - we have to collect associations from mythology, folklore, religious stories, habits, and so forth. This way we enlarge the genuine content of the dream with more images and symbols that further help us understand its meaning
