Comment on Carl Jung
I enjoy reading Jung but still question the practicality of much of his work. Whilst the concept of the Static and dynamic personalities, and their definitions within the construct of both the masculine and feminine life forces makes sense, his reliance on the power of the mythic image is overplayed. In today’s society especially, with the flood of information that bombard us each minute, I see the mythic image swamped and indeed torpedoed by all else that impinges our mind. Reducing these old archetypes into practically marginalized entities.
