Jungian Analysis: Maxson McDowell

Jungian Analysis: Maxson McDowell

I address both Noll’s and Pietikainen’s critiques by arguing that analytical psychology does not depend upon non-rational assumptions. (Medieval, Catalan: “Nativity”)

My second argument, which I interweave with the first, is that relatedness is a central goal of the individuation journey. In brief, to relate is to engage consciously with the other. The other is found both in the outer world and in the inner world of the psyche. To relate in depth one must be open to that part of the other which is mysterious. To relate to the mysterious, I argue, one needs a standpoint in the rational.
