Jung Theories

Most of the Jung's theories regarding the structure and exploration of the psyche are covered in this site through themes and key-concepts (see the summary at the bottom of this page).

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 insight 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. First of all it is the compensation concept and the prospective feature he developed when dealing with dreams.

On the plane of interpretation it is the amplification method. When we deal with some dreams - stated Jung - we have to collect associations from other sources, such as 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 

We provide more about his method of interpretation, the archetypes as they appear in dreams and the I Ching usage in analysis through our email course designed for beginners. Click here to learn more.
