Jung’s psychology also shows its anti-materialistic quality in its notion of the Self. This is conceived as the organizing principle of the psyche, the superordinate force which overlooks it. In fact, the ways in which Jung talks about the Self reminds us of our images of God, and Jung argued that human ideas about God are reflections of the Self. But crucially here Jung has brought into human psychology the idea of transcendence, something which to Freud is anathema, or which can explained by infantile experiences.

Thus Jung was profoundly interested in mythology, mysticism, alchemy, and other collective expressions of inner truths, or in Jung’s terms, expressions of the collective archetypes. So there is a kind of inversion of Freud in Jung. Where Freud saw infantile sexuality as highly determining of later mental structures, Jung saw it as the outcrop of deep symbolic pre-existing structures. The Self Jung’s notion of the Self is one of the most extraordinary ideas developed in human psychology, not least since it connects with many religious and spiritual ideas.
