Jung´s Notion of Psyche and the Limits of Experience

(Original title: Jungov pojem psyché a hranice skúsenosti)
Filozofia, 55 (2000), 4, 307-315.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The paper examines Jung's conception of psyché as one of the explanations of human being denying the autonomy of the conciousness and trying to grasp man´s original and natural relationship to himself, to his world and to God. The author (she) is concerned to show, that Jung's notion of psyché embodying the consciousness as well as the individual and collective unconsciousness, tries to postulate the essential unity of man and world, seeing the distinction between the subject and the object as unjustified. It thus questions the idea of an essential difference between matter and spirit. The contribution indicates the heuristic possibilities of the phenomenological interpretation od Jung's conception.
