DESCRIPTION

As a result of the experiences which form the basisof his Red Book, Liber Novus, Jung carefully re-defined his use of the term “symbol”, clearly differentiating it from a Freudian semiotic context. In this seminar I will compare Jung’s writing on the symbol in Chapter 20 of Liber Secundus with his more conceptually-framed definition published seven years later in Psychological Types. My aim will be to suggest how the symbol, in Jung’s sense, may inform and guide the practice of psychotherapy.
