Archetypes & Strange Attractors
John R. Van Eenwyk
Chaos is far healthier than previously imagined. Title #75 in the series Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts. Examines the correspondence between the theories of C. G. Jung and chaos research in physics and mathematics. Carl Jung believed that our psychological development proceeds according to the influence of symbols in our lives. In stripping away the old points of view so that growth can occur, symbols invariably feel chaotic. That is Jung's theory. Now, with the advent of chaos theory, there is new support for his perspective.There-fore we must revise our basic no-tions about mental health.
