Among the central concepts of analytical psychology is individuation—the lifelong psychological process of differentiation of the self out of each individual’s conscious and unconscious elements. Jung considered it to be the main task of human development. He created some of the best known psychological concepts, including synchronicity, archetypal phenomena, the collective unconscious, the psychological complex and extraversion and introversion.
In this video, we explore Carl Jung’s concept of the shadow and how to integrate it into our personality to attain wholeness.
Though I have my issues about how Jung handled things and how he should have done better, been more forcefully anti fascist when history needed him to be, he did bring important concepts to psychology. His situation kind of proves though, that having the knowledge of something doesn’t equate to having the strength to follow through on it.
