Alfonsas Savickas: Symbol

The Concept of Symbol in the Psychology of C. G. Jung

All symbols, religious inclusive, are handled by JUNG in light of the individuation process in which the archetypes are activated, the climax crystalizing in symbols of the self archetype. In a computerized climate JUNG attempted to fathom irrational influencing factors. In his pioneer work he said to have reached a copernician revolution. His contribution towards a reestimation and regard for the symbol is undertaken especially with respect to Christian orthodoxy and orthopraxis.
