Jungian Psychology: Unraveling the Unconscious Mind

In this article:

Alongside Sigmund Freud, the Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung (1875–1961) is one of the most important innovators in the field of modern depth psychology.
Jungian psychology, also known as analytical psychology, offers ground-breaking theories of the human psyche that are rooted in theories of the unconscious.
Originally a collaborator of Freud’s, Jung eventually parted ways with the father of psychoanalysis and developed his own psychological theories. Jung is particularly famous for his theory of the collective unconscious and for his research on archetypes, individuation, the shadow, and personality types.
Jung’s research into archetypes and symbols continues to inspire practitioners, researchers, creatives, and spiritual people, as well as those with an interest in cross-cultural psychology.
