SIGNIFICANCE OF JUNG IN TODAY'S WORLD
Validity & Location
Psychoanalysis and analytic psychology have always stood on the edge of contemporary culture. As a Jew in an increasingly Anti-Semitic world, (Freud) might well have needed to understate the collective dimension. Jung … found … a place for the mystical and for the collective. This would never be an easy place, but living through the turbulent times that included two world wars and the times that led up to them, his willingness to engage was a willingness to look at territory that is deeply disturbing. In hindsight, Jung’s claim to have seen the rise of Nazism foreshadowed in dream work [Jung 1947] sounds brilliant and prescient. At the time, it must have been terrifying; topical too in today’s world.
