Carl Gustav Jung

In the chapter titled “The Importance of Dreams” in Man and His Symbols, Jung wrote of the “resistance to the idea of an unknown part of the human psyche” and that “the individual’s psyche is far from being safely synthesized; on the contrary, it threatens to fragment only too easily under the onslaught of unchecked emotions…. We too can become dissociated and lose our identity.” However, Jung also characterizes cultures who hold totemic beliefs (as he sees them) as “primitive.”
