Teaching Jung

Jeremy Taylor

Oxford University Press

This chapter reflects on his efforts to educate students about the psychospiritual insights of Jungian psychology and discuss with them the criticism against Jung. In recent years, Taylor has done more teaching in Korea, China, and other Asian settings, enabling him to offer particularly salient observations about the challenges and rewards of translating Jungian ideas in non-Western contexts. The chapter emphasizes the cross-cultural relevance of archetypal theory, not in a naïve or simplistic way but rather as the ultimate psychological basis on which humans recognize and relate to each other. The chapter's argument highlights the strong theological implications of Jung's theory of the collective unconscious, implications that Jung as a psychologist did not feel qualified to pursue but that strongly resonate today with many liberal Christians.

Keywords:   Korea, China, Non-Western, archetypal theory, psychospiritual, Jung
