JUNG, Carl G

1875 - 1961
Switzerland
SOCIAL SCIENCE

 

Eminent psychiatrist who developed comprehensive theories of the human personality, including different generic types and components and the notion of the collective unconscious. The types were introversion and extroversion, plus the four functioning properties of thinking and feeling (the rational pair) and of sensation and intuition (the irrational pair). He disagreed with Freud regarding the determinative influence of libidinal/sexual drives, instead emphasising the importance of spiritual/meaning energies. Moral and religious maturity is the outcome of the process of individuation wherein a person makes sense of their inherited given-ness in their current living context.
