Em princípio, complexo e símbolo, segundo Jung, coincidem em muitos aspectos, pois ambos se enraízam num núcleo de significado arquetípico e no inconsciente coletivo. Por isto, arquétipo, complexo e símbolo podem, com certa razão, ser usados como "conceitos" intercambiáveis ??em seu significado intrínseco, como fez Jung.

Man and His Symbols
Author: C. G. Jung
Man and His Symbols owes its existence to one of Jung's own dreams. The great psychologist dreamed that his work was understood by a wide public, rather than just by psychiatrists, and therefore he agreed to write and edit this fascinating book. Here, Jung examines the full world of the unconscious, whose language he believed to be the symbols constantly revealed in dreams. Convinced that dreams offer practical advice, sent from the unconscious to the conscious self, Jung felt that self-understanding would lead to a full and productive life. Thus, the reader will gain new insights into himself from this thoughtful volume, which also illustrates symbols throughout history. Completed just before his death by Jung and his associates, it is clearly addressed to the general reader. Praise for Man and His Symbols “This book, which was the last piece of work undertaken by Jung before his death in 1961, provides a unique opportunity to assess his contribution to the life and thought of our time, for it was also his firsat attempt to present his life-work in psychology to a non-technical public. . . . What emerges with great clarity from the book is that Jung has done immense service both to psychology as a science and to our general understanding of man in society, by insisting that imaginative life must be taken seriously in its own right, as the most distinctive characteristic of human beings.”—Guardian “Straighforward to read and rich in suggestion.”—John Barkham, Saturday Review Syndicate “This book will be a resounding success for those who read it.”—Galveston News-Tribune “A magnificent achievement.”—Main Currents “Factual and revealing.”—Atlanta Times
Masks of the Soul

Esta obra traz uma pesquisa desenvolvida pela autora em termos ensaístico e documental. Os assuntos são tratados dentro de um prisma muito amplo, tanto do ponto de vista espacial - pois abrange os fenômenos das máscaras, do teatro de bonecos e do teatro de formas animadas tanto no Ocidente quanto no Oriente - como do ponto de vista temporal, pois abarca fenômenos diversamente situados quanto ao desenvolvimento histórico. Boa parte desse trabalho se dedica a correntes modernas na arte das formas animadas, de Alfred Jarry e Tadeusz Kantor.

Also available in an open-access, full-text edition at http://oaktrust.library.tamu.edu/handle/1969.1/88024 In 1952 C. G. Jung published a paradoxical hypothesis on synchronicity that marked an attempt to expand the western world’s conception of the relationship between nature and the psyche. Jung’s hypothesis sought to break down the polarizing cause-effect assessment of the world and psyche, suggesting that everything is interconnected. Thus, synchronicity is both "a meaningful event" and "an acausal connecting principle." Evaluating the world in this manner opened the door to "exploring the possibility of meaning in chance or random events, deciphering if and when meaning might be present even if outside conscious awareness." Now, after contextualizing Jung’s work in relation to contemporary scientific advancements such as relativity and quantum theories, Joseph Cambray explores in this book how Jung’s theories, practices, and clinical methods influenced the current field of complexity theory, which works with a paradox similar to Jung’s synchronicity: the importance of symmetry as well as the need to break that symmetry for "emergence" to occur. Finally, Cambray provides his unique contribution to the field by attempting to trace "cultural synchronicities," a reconsideration of historical events in terms of their synchronistic aspects. For example, he examines the emergence of democracy in ancient Greece in order "to find a model of group decision making based on emergentist principles with a synchronistic core."

According to Carl Jung, the goal of human life is self realization; we have to strive to become whole. Deep down, we are all creative beings, and we have to make use of our creativity to become what we really are. Kast explores Jung's concept of the human being and describes the path to wholeness which, since Jung, is known as the individuation process. It becomes clear that wholeness is only possible through the interplay between conscious and unconscious. However, the two have different languages: consciousness uses word-logic, whereas the unconscious uses dream-logic. Both languages would be forever foreign to each other, were it not for symbols, which mediate between the two: our unconscious encodes its knowledge in symbols, which we then have to translate into the language of our consciousness. Thus symbols are focal points of psychic development, and it is through them that we can become whole human beings. Jung taught us the techniques with which we can make the creative core of the unconscious available to consciousness. Kast explains them by using numerous examples from her daily work as a therapist. She shows us how psychological problems can be overcome by working on the symbols in which they express themselves. In a language that can be readily grasped by the general reader, Kast goes on to explain the basic thought of Jungian psychotherapy, covering the correlation between symbols and complexes, with a special emphasis on the ego-complex; the healing function of the archetypes and how they appear in, and interact with, symbols; and symbols in transference and countertransference, powerful tools in psychotherapy. Kast also discusses the interplay of psychosomatic diseases and symbols. The Dynamics of Symbols is not only of immediate interest to all psychologists and their patients. It is of direct concern to everyone who has the desire to become a whole human being.
Comprehensive guide to an understanding of dreams in light of the basic principles of analytical psychology. Particular attention to common motifs, the role of complexes, and the goal and purpose of dreams.
A psicanalista junguiana Helen I. Bachmann descreve com clareza, nesta obra, diversos animais - entre eles o cão, o gato, o cavalo, a abelha, o urso, a vaca, o porco - e o seu significado para o ser humano. Com base nos mitos, contos de fadas e sonhos ela demonstra que os símbolos de animais não apenas marcaram a história da humanidade, mas também podem determinar os processos de desenvolvimento psíquicos do indivíduo.

Publisher: Grupo Editorial Summus
Anorexia nervosa e bulimia nervosa estão cada vez mais presentes na nossa sociedade. As pacientes com tais distúrbios têm trazido questões novas que permitem enriquecer a compreensão das suas causas e processos. A autora examina quanto essas causas estão vinculadas a fatores culturais. Neste sentido, a propaganda desempenha um papel fundamental na criação e manutenção dos modelos que se fixam no inconsciente. O livro analisa diversos casos clínicos, bem como anúncios em revistas femininas que exemplificam essa concepção.
Nunca será demais acentuar a importância das contribuições de Carl Jung ao nosso entendimento da psique humana. Os conceitos por ele desenvolvidos, de inconsciente coletivo, padrões arquétipos de personalidade, extroversão e introversão; sua análise das f
With a text revised and corrected by the author, this definitive edition of Individuation in Fairy Tales is rich with insights from religion, literature, and myth. Dr. von Franz focuses on the symbolism of the bird motif in six fairy tales of Europe and Asia: "The White Parrot" (Spain), "The Bath Bagerd" (Persia), "Princess Hassan Pasha" (Turkestan), "The Bid Flower Triller" (Iran), "The Nightingale Giser" (Balkans), and "The Bird Wehmus" (Austria). She explores the themes of psychological and spiritual transformation in the varied images of birds, such as the phoenix, the parrot, and the griffin. Special attention is given to the connection between fairy tales and alchemy and to the guidance that fairy tales give to therapeutic work.
