Jung and analytical psychology Jung seems to inhabit a different universe from Freud, so much so that it is surprising, not that these two giants became estranged from each other, but that they were able to co-exist for a number of years. Whereas Freud looks back to the history of a neurosis, Jung looks forward to its possible meaning in the future; where Freud takes a quite materialistic view of the psyche, seen as containing various quasi-biological drives, Jung’s psychology is much more concerned with images and symbols as things in themselves.

Such people tend to get disappointed and fed up when problems are not being solved, and when obvious cognitive working out is not taking place. It is worth asking them whether the present moment has any value for them, for one will often find that it has little, since their mind is already focused on the next goal or the next problem to be solved. This is particularly true of men who spend their working lives engaged in this kind of mental activity, and are often very good at it. For such people, the present moment may seem of little or no value, or may seem quite empty, unless it is filled with mental work.

I think it is, since then one no longer feels bizarre and freakish, say for example, if one is grappling with ferocious guilt. People may ask why they are being subjected to such attacks of guilt, but one answer to that is that the culture has demanded it. Jung used similar reasoning to explain the rise of Nazism and Communism, and it is clear that the human propensity to war and the barbarism that is found in war cannot simply be explained in terms of individual psychology. There are mass psychological movements and forces, which in fact are difficult to deal with for individuals, precisely because they are collective phenomenon, so that some people feel swept away by them.
