Experience and meaning in Carl Gustav Jung’s thought: Readings of the red book
Keywords:Carl Gustav Jung, Red Book, Psychic Experience, Sense, Sinn
The attempt to comprehend the psychic experience is a constancy in Jung’s work, the basis according to which his clinical practice and theoretical constructs were developed. The inner experience thus acquires both the status of cause and aim of the psychic fact. Within this context, The Red Book represents an important source for research, because of its biographical character and by what it presents as indications of important theoretical concepts. In this essay, we will address Jung’s approaches to the question of sense (Sinn) and meaning (Bedeutung) in The Red Book and how these themes intertwine in the psychic experience.
