Jungian archetypes. Archetypes are universal archaic patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious According to Jungian approach of psychology, some highly developed elements of the collective unconscious are called "archetypes".

Jungian archetypes

Carl Jung developed an understanding of archetypes as universal, archaic patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious and are the psychic counterpart of instinct [1] They are autonomous and hidden forms which are transformed once they enter consciousness and are given particular expression by individuals and their cultures. Being unconscious, the existence of archetypes can only be deduced indirectly by examining behavior, images, art, myths, religions, or dreams. They are inherited potentials which are actualized when they enter consciousness as images or manifest in behavior on interaction with the outside world.[2] Introduction[edit] Base de données des masters réalisée par UBO.

The Hero's Quest

The Romance of Dreams. Ever since Freud there has been a popular notion that dreams often contain and conceal unexpressed sexual and romantic wishes.

The Romance of Dreams

Although a century of controlled studies on dreams has failed to support the specifics of Freud’s contentions concerning repressed erotic wishes in dreams, Freud’s general idea that sexual and romantic libido is activated and ‘processed’ in dreams has started to gain significant empirical support. Recast in modern terminology and the more rigorous analytic framework of attachment theory it seems dreams can and do function to process attachment-related affect and representations. Beginning in the 1980s and 1990s REM sleep biologists began to notice that the brain and neurochemical systems activated in REM sleep (where vivid dreams occur) overlap to a considerable extent with systems that support maternal-infant attachment and bonding in animals.

These results suggest that dreams do in fact process attachment related affective and mental content. Transcript Verlag. Transcript Verlag. Web Images News Videos Shopping Maps Recipes Web Images News Videos Shopping Maps Recipes.

Existentialism - Literature Periods & Movements

Though reduced now to the level of cliché, Rene Descartes’ famous maxim sums up perfectly the philosophical underpinnings of existentialist thought. Existentialism has its roots in the writings of several nineteenth and twentieth century philosophers, among them Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger, and Søren Kierkegaard. A SCHLUMP FOR OUR TIME. Daniel Clowes is something of a connoisseur of schlumps.


From his early "Lloyd Llewellyn" comics to his later "David Boring" and "Ghost World" series, his cartoon men tend to be losers of a sort—empathetic, but also a bit creepy. In "Wilson", his latest book (and his first original graphic novel), the titular schlump is a proper anti-hero, with an ill father (stage-four lymphoma), an estranged ex-wife and a daughter they put up for adoption when she was an infant. When Wilson spots his ex-wife waitressing at a diner, the two reconnect. Existentialism - Literature Periods & Movements. Utopian innocent dreams in Postmodern history.

S. Eliot, "The Hollow Men" The hollow men speaking in the epigraph are not much different from Eliot's famous Prufrock, the inadequate modern man whose introspection, self deprecation, and hesitation are all emblematic of a new heroism.
