Audio: Lecture II.3.3 – The Mythic Image
These are the principal archetypes, I would say, in the Jungian psychological opus: the center; the figures representing the functions — sensation, thinking, and so forth; the personae, these are culturally conditioned; the anima/animus, also very strongly culturally conditioned; the ego, the center of consciousness; the shadow, the threat, the Freudian personal unconscious which is a function of your own biography and then the problem of the interaction of these.
— Joseph Campbell
Joseph Campbell delves into the compelling psychology of Carl Jung, including how psychological functions manifest, both consciously and unconsciously, in individual experience.
This lecture was recorded at the Mann Ranch in Ukiah, California in 1972.
