Exactly one hundred years ago, Jung coined the term ‘Analytical Psychology’ to differentiate his theories about the nature and dynamics of the human psyche from those of his compatriot, Freud, and Freudian ‘Psychoanalysis’. Although regarded as a body of thought and therapeutic practice in its own right, Analytical Psychology has continued to encourage and incite dialogue and debate with many other academic traditions and fields of study, beyond its psychological and psychiatric disciplinary origins. Academic research into Analytical Psychology is subsequently found in a wide variety of fields and areas of study—including but not limited to, philosophy, political thought, literature, religious studies, education, sociology, film and media, fine art and art history, neuroscience, quantum physics, environmental studies. Its widespread appeal demonstrates its usefulness in clarifying the nature of our human behaviours and interactions, and for establishing important links between otherwise disparate disciplines.
This special issue will show case a range of different applications of Jungian thought and practice, and to that end, we welcome submissions from any disciplinary perspective, and also any academic approach (theoretical, empirical, historical, cultural, or otherwise). Papers are especially welcome that employ interdisciplinary perspectives or reveal the impact of Analytical Psychology on other disciplines or fields of study.
