Jung's work has been influential in the fields of psychiatry , anthropology, archaeology, literature, philosophy and religious studies. During this time, he came to the attention of Sigmund Freud , the founder of psychoanalysis. The two men conducted a lengthy correspondence and collaborated, for a while, on a joint vision of human psychology. Freud saw the younger Jung as the heir he had been seeking to take forward his "new science" of psychoanalysis and to this end secured his appointment as President of his newly founded International Psychoanalytical Association. Jung's research and personal vision, however, made it impossible for him to follow his older colleague's doctrine and a schism became inevitable. This division was personally painful for Jung and resulted in the establishment of Jung's analytical psychology as a comprehensive system separate from psychoanalysis.
The collective unconscious is a concept originally defined by psychoanalyst Carl Jung. Sometimes referred to as the "objective psyche," it refers to the idea that a segment of the deepest unconscious mind is genetically inherited and is not shaped by personal experience. According to Jung's teachings, the collective unconscious is common to all human beings and is responsible for a number of deep-seated beliefs and instincts, such as spirituality, sexual behavior, and life and death instincts. Born in Switzerland in , Carl Jung founded the school of analytical psychology. He is responsible for proposing and developing the psychological concepts of collective unconscious and archetypes, along with introverted and extroverted personality. Jung worked with Sigmund Freud, another prominent early psychologist.
Jung and Literary Theory pp Cite as. The wide-ranging discipline of literary studies has neglected the potential of Jung for literary theory. Such neglect becomes acute in an age when meta-narratives such as those of Freud and Marx are tested, reconfigured and reinscribed for a postmodern era. Could a powerful contemporary critique such as feminism detect a textual hysteria in Jungian theory? Could such a project as this offer a contribution to still pertinent debates about psyche, gender, power, history and discourse? The aim, as always, is twofold: to employ techniques such as post-structuralism, postmodernism, feminism and in later chapters new historicism, reader theory and postcolonialism to critique the humanist Jung, while at the same time exploring the potential for Jungian ideas to contribute to these modern literary discourses in a productive and non-hierarchical manner.

Analytical psychology German : Analytische Psychologie , sometimes translated as analytic psychology and referred to as Jungian analysis is a term coined by Carl Jung , a Swiss psychiatrist , to describe research into his new "empirical science" of the psyche. It was designed to distinguish it from Freud's psychoanalytic theories as their seven-year collaboration on psychoanalysis was drawing to an end between and The history of analytical psychology is intimately linked with the biography of Jung. It was initially a theory concerning psychological complexes until Jung, upon breaking with Sigmund Freud , turned it into a generalised method of investigating archetypes and the unconscious , as well as into a specialised psychotherapy. Analytical psychology, or "complex psychology", from the German : Komplexe Psychologie , is the foundation of many developments in the study and practice of Psychology as of other disciplines.
