Views from the Self: The Archetype of Personal Identity

An archetype carries recurrent human experience. What is the most common and widespread archetypal experience? Surprisingly, it is “I”. The “I” is the central experience of the Archetypal Self. It is on the “near side” of all our experiences, yet it is the unavoidable instrument of all our perceptions, and therefore of our theories and beliefs. The Archetypal Self constitutes our most mysterious problem. What is personal identity as seen from the Archetypal Self? This program explores Jung’s concept of the Self as the underpinning of personal identity.
