Taoismen och den analytiska psykologin

by Vesterlund, Per

Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this paper is to study the connection between Taoism and analytical psychology. This is done by descriptive text analysis of post-jungian literature. Often mentioned when searching for the inspirations and influences on analytical psychology we find references to alchemy, Buddhism, Gnosticism, Hinduism and the hermetic tradition. More seldom do we meet any references to Taoism. My aim is to investigate what gravity do the post-jungians attach to the taoism influence on C.G. JungĀ“s analytical psychology. This paper will also argue that Taoism is an underestimated influence in the development of the analytical psychology.Keywords: Analytical psychology, Jungian psychology, Taoism, Tao, Richard Wilhelm, synchronicity, C.G. Jung, analytisk psykologi, jungiansk psykologi
