This is the contradicting of Jung. Jung has analysis himself to experience the unconscious through his dreams and fantasia Jung believe that he was strong enough to make dangerous journey and come back to talk about it. His goal was to understand the unconscious from the purpose viewpoint of scientist. Ellis thoughts are that society is more disturbs and it more inclusive and exact “people disturb themselves by thing that have happen to them. And by the view, feelings, and actions” (p16) Horney’s (1950) also Adler writes that our Emotional reactions and lifestyle are associated with our basic beliefs and are therefore cognitively created.
He has paved many paths in the psychology field of study. Freud explored observable behavior and rather than changing the environment looked for alternate reasons for the behavior. Freud’s theory of psychodynamic perspective stated that all behaviors, both ordinary and unordinary are controlled by the unconscious mind. Freud’s research led him to discover that the unconscious mind controlled his patients’ behavior. Freud was a neurologist by degree but used his background to explore areas in the psychological field.
Describe and explain the main principles of either; a) Sigmund Freud’s Psychoanalytic Theory or b) Carl Jung’s Individual Psychology; with reference to either art, film or literature. “The Ego is not master in its own house.” Sigmund Freud, from A Difficulty in the Path of Psychoanalysis, 1917. In this essay I will attempt to describe and explain the main principles of Sigmund Freud’s Psychoanalytic Theory with reference to Lewis Carroll’s ‘Through the Looking Glass’. I have chosen this particular piece of literature because Freud’s Psychoanalytic Theory was an approach to the analysis and treatment of ‘abnormal’ behaviour. I feel that ‘Through the Looking Glass’ deals with a fair amount of ‘abnormal’ behaviour and think that a lot of it can be explained by this theory.
Psychology- as explored through the eyes of Carl Jung and Abraham Maslow When Carl Jung says, “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves”, he very aptly describes the role that Psychology plays in exploring and examining the processes of the human brain and how that impacts our behaviors and personality. Comparing the theories of Jung and Maslow could take hours since each one had enough to say about what their beliefs were about the human condition. But while Carl Jung focused on how the unconscious affected our personality (Introversion and Extraversion), Abraham Maslow focused on the integration of self (Self-Actualization Theory). Jung believed that there were active centers in the unconscious
His many theories were based on case studies of his patients and from deep self analysis over a period of fifty years. He died in 1937 (Sanders, 2011). According to Chrysalis (2010) his most important contribution to psychology is the concept of the ‘dynamic unconscious’ meaning that the unconscious mind of a human plays a very important role in how they behave. He developed many theories and the practice of psychoanalysis; one of the twentieth century’s most influential schools of psychology. He also made fundamental contributions to philosophy and Lear (2005) names Freud as one of the greatest theorists of human nature, engaging in deep issues and problems such as human sexuality, the unconscious, dreams and theories of transference.
Even being brain dead he is still Matthew. From Plato’s “defense” of existence of the soul, Melinda may use the fact that they should not tamper with Matthew’s soul. Of course, she would be speaking for a metapsychical stand point at the same time worrying about her own soul. Melissa would argue that Matthew is gone meaning there is no soul left. When he was no longer able to function on his own he was then just a shell.
The Psychoanalysis Perspective Abstract. Sigmund Freud, the Father of Personality Psychology, highlights many theories in his writings. Most noted in this paper was the Psychoanalytic Perspective, which gives an in-depth view of determinism, the importance of conflict, early experience, infantile sexuality, and most illustrious the importance of unconscious motivation. This theory assumed that there exist three levels of consciousness in which the human mind functions. People did not come to accept his theory at first, but after much testing it was proven mostly valid and reliable.
It was, therefore, my sense that Talvitie’s work served as something of a bridge between the two paradigms that drew me to it. As is the case with all mental phenomena, the questions as to just how and where the unconscious might be, is associated with the mind-body problem that distinguishes monists and dualists. For monists, mind emerges from brain activity. Dualists hold that mind and brain are separate and cannot be reduced to each other. Dualism has largely fallen out of favour with most neuroscientists and Talvitie (2009) himself is clearly a monist.
After the split, Jung went on to develop his own school of thought called analytical psychology. Jung’s theory differed from Sigmund Freud’s in that his theory held two levels of the unconscious. The first level is the personal unconscious. This level is made up of forgotten and repressed memories. The second level is where the difference between Freud and Jung are really evident and this level is called the collective unconscious.
Journal 1: Personality Theory A personality theory is a theory is an attempt to describe and explain how people are similar, how they are different, and why every individual is unique. (p.445) There are many personality theories but for the most part they are grouped into four basic perspectives: The Psychoanalytic Perspective: Freud’s theory of personality, which emphasizes unconscious determinants of behavior, sexual and aggressive instinctual drives, and the enduring effects of early childhood experiences on later personality development. (p.445) Humanistic Perspective: theoretical viewpoint on personality that generally emphasizes the inherent goodness of people, human potential, self-actualization, the self-concept, and healthy personality development. (p.459) Social Cognitive Perspective: Albert Bandura’s theory of personality, which emphasizes the importance of observational learning, conscious cognitive processes, social experiences, self-efficacy beliefs, and reciprocal determinism. (p.463) Trait Personality: trait theories of personality focus on identifying, describing, and measuring individual differences in behavioral predispositions.
