How helpful is Jung
in today’s religious and cultural environment?

Firey Cross

Jungian Depth Psychology has had a significant impact on popular thinking, coining terms such as the collective unconscious and the archetype. It has also been a key means of generating interest in ‘comparative religion.’ Most importantly its conjoining of religion and psychotherapy is widely accepted as a legitimate means of healing troubled souls. After considering its applications and value, I will also examine the limits and possible adverse effects of this approach for our understanding of religion and the psyche in today’s religious and cultural environment.
