PSYC 101 3/31/11 Neo-Freudians continued Carl Jung- contemporary and influenced by Feud Departed from Freud in many areas, most importantly felt that unconsciousness could be divided into two broad areas- the personal unconscious- this is experiences and memories that are not available to us and are influenced by genetics and early interactions with parents and then also the collective unconscious The collective unconscious was that level of unconsciousness that we all share- that we get from our inherited past, our ancestors. Images or memories derived from our universal experience or from our ancestors This means that he was struck by the fact that there were certain recurring images throughout history that we see such as in art throughout cultures not related, a store house of knowledge that we tap into that relates to anyone who’s human Uses archetypes- emotionally charged image or form that has some kind of universal meaning. We see this in different cultures that don’t necessarily communicate with one another. One that is talked about a lot- mandalas Also characters throughout history- images of shadows, the devil, or the wise old man. If we see these repeatedly, doesn’t it mean there’s something within us that produces that? Personal consciousness- similar to Freud Advantages and disadvantages of this psychodynamic theory Advantages: took a development approach, how people changes over time as they grew up. Hard to get a theory of psychology without looking how people change, one of the first theories that talked about the unconscious, spawned interest in “talking” therapies where you discuss things on your mind with therapist, has a lot of heuristic value- influenced a lot of people Limitation/Disadvantages: sexist (more focused on men then women), very sexual
