Jung and Catholicism by Clayton S Meyer The dissertation "Jung and Catholicism: A Study of Selected Presuppositions Within a Psychological and a Theological System" brings to the forefront Five Presuppositions: The Psychological and Theological Prelude, Human Knowledge About God, Religious Experience, Soul and Psyche, The Structure and Behavior of the Human Person. These presuppositions will be utilized to compare and contrast The Jungian View and The Catholic View. Carl Gustav Jung, (born July 26, 1875, died June 6, 1961) lived to be 85. C.J. Jung was a Swiss Psychiatrist and a Psychologist who founded the branch called analytical psychology. Jung was a student of Sigmund Freud. Freud once called Jung "his adopted eldest son, his crown prince and successor." Although Jung was not a Theologian or a religious person, he was drawn to examine Catholic Doctrine or Dogma from a psychological point of view. The concepts of God, Christ-Figure, Trinity, Soul, Faith, Psyche, Angels, Creed, Morals, Magisterium, Religious Experience, Rites and Symbols, Consciousness and Unconsciousness; are explored within both views as part of my research for this dissertation and hopefully to add a small, infinitesimal part of my understanding in the dialogue between the two, as I do appreciate and value the vast knowledge of the human person that has been shared to all of humanity by C.G. Jung and the Roman Catholic Church. Clayton S. Meyershow more
