Definitions for "Jungian"
of or pertaining to Carl Jung, Swiss psychiatrist.
of or relating to Carl Jung or his psychological theories
Relating to the theories on human behaviour put forward by the Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung. He perceived a duality in many aspects of the human mind. His most significant theory was that of a collective unconscious, which contains all of the “racial memories” each person is born with. Because some myths, such as a “great flood”, seem to appear in all cultures, he determined that some past memories become part of our genetic code, as archetypes (symbolic representations of memories).
