Jung and Intuition

Jung and Intuition examines for the first time the twelve categories of intuition described in both the works of C. G. Jung and the post-Jungians. Nowhere, other than in Jung's own work, has intuition been more fully treated. Each form of intuition is critically explained in the historical context of its appearance and located in one of the four spheres of Jung's psychology: the unconscious, the subconscious (Unterbewusste, consciousness, and Jungian and post-Jungian practice. This work brings Jung's entire psychology in all its depth from 1896 to its contemporary use into greater clarity for both professionals and lay readers.Natalie Pilard persuasively shows that intuition is at the heart of Jung's psychology. It is central to his concept of the archetypes as well as to his understanding of the subconscious and the active imagination. It also involves both clinical and philosophical approaches, as powerfully demonstrated by his pioneering work at the Burgholzli Klinik in Zurich.

Introduction

ePub

Intuition, Eingebung, Einfall, Einfälle, Vorahnung, clairvoyance, Anschauung, Analogie, intellektual Intuition, and Visionen are ten of the more than two dozen terms used by Jung to describe the multiplicity and the complexity of the epiphanies of the notion of intuition in his writing. In my previous study, I used intuition as a method through which to approach Jung’s introduction to Richard Wilhelm’s translation of the Book of Changes, or I Ching (see Pilard, 2010). Now I wish to move from the specific to the general, asking myself whether intuition had a single meaning for Jung. Single became multiple, and five years later the compilation started to take shape.

This polymorphic aspect of intuition is more than a preliminary issue to be addressed before reaching the heart of the topic. It is the teething issue itself. I invite the reader to examine Jung’s definition of intuition in Part I and to read it again having reached the end of the book. As is too often the case with Jung’s three-dimensional writing, a first reading of his work is bound to be flat. Jung writes from somewhere that he rarely depicts. The Jung of The Red Book, unmistakeably deep, is the Jung of his entire work. Yet there, the task of finding the third dimension, depth, is left to the reader and to the hermeneut. Hence, this work, and the work of other academics who try to elevate Jung’s words and restore their shadow.1
