Do you have a definition of the 'collective unconscious', or what do you think is the best definition?Quote
That’s a great point Yve. Jung was right to include mythological thinking in our collective unconscious but it also certainly included millenia of pre- linguistic experiences. Mythology implies language to effect stories but our forebears were poking around much longer than that.
It is kind of how a person will put together Christmas presents without reading the instructions. People somehow just know how to do things.
To me it is a meaningless phrase.
