Discovering And Discussing ARCHETYPES JUNG In Theories & Practice

By Stacey Burt

Jung is a name familiar to most who have studied the fields of psychology and psychiatry. Working as both a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, views sometimes vary from the mainstream. Though, while others never thought of using archetypes, Jung did, the two most commonly used ARCHETYPES JUNG, were that of the innocent child, and the old man full of wisdom, because you can not have one without the other.

The term archetype, is derived from study related to modern philosophical and psychological theories. It can have one of several meanings. The most popular being associated with literary analysis, or research. A good example in which this type archetype can be useful is in that of solving crimes, or in film and television with relation to to the writers and directors of comedies, dramas, mysteries, suspense thrillers and many other genres.

The basic definition holds an archetype to be a statement, a pattern, or a prototype for a resolution to aid in modifying behavior. Other definitions include the promotion of collective consciousness, patterns of thought and visualization. While these are often positive traits, some have been for evil, take the case of Charles Manson, who created a "collective consciousness, " among his followers who were then brainwashed to do horrid, unconscionable acts of madness.

These elements can vary a great deal when it comes to the research and study projects of Jung and others like Edgar Cayce. Although Jung's archetypes of a an old wise man, and an innocent child can be used in many different applications. Applications whether as treatments, or in discussion can often add metaphorical aspects in which the old wise man, and innocent child could be anything from the world and a planet, to the dream world and reality.

Although collective consciousness also has a place within the definition of an archetype, the term is rarely used. Also, while a collective consciousness can exist among people of like mind, body and spirit, brainwashing can also be mistaken when multiple people are brainwashed at the same time by the same person, group or organization.

A good example of this is that of Charles Manson, a serial killer who brainwashed his followers to do horrid criminal acts, in which he landed a home in what some may call the intentional community of death row, with only one or two of the others having been freed on parole since the crimes were committed in 1969.

While that may be the case, generally collective consciousness and intentional communities are positive. With many providing food to those whom are less fortunate, or creating businesses from self sustaining farms on which the group resides. A great example of one of these intentional sustainable communities is that of Earth Rose Farm in Costa Rica which offers a three week visit, with longer volunteer and homestead options.

Unfortunately, it has yet to be determined if these "intentional communities" will succeed over time. Some have had the same betters for years, while others see individuals come and go on a regular basis. It is no doubt that this may be the case in the beginning of most of these communities as it can often take a great deal of acceptance and tolerance to live with other people as a family, whether by chance or choice.
