It is one such image, that of "magician", which is the subject of this thesis. Given this contrast between the archetype as such and the archetypal image in which it finds cultural expression, "the magician" might better be regarded as an archetypal image than as an archetype itself.
Jungian usage is, however, inconsistent on this point and because one so often sees the magician referred to directly as an archetype,10 I have adopted this usage for my thesis.
This seems the simpler and more straight-forward course. What needs to be insisted on, however, it that there is something still deeper behind the image of the magician, something itself unknown, which expresses itself in the psyche as "magician".
One of the archetypes that is almost invariably met with in the projection of unconscious collective contents is the "magic demon" with mysterious powers.
It would be interesting, but beyond the scope of this thesis, to explore Jung's ideas about archetypes in general and perhaps to defend Jung against various misunderstandings. In particular, the common assumption that Jung is a kind of Lamarckian who believes in the inheritance of acquired ideas would be worth refuting since this misinterpretation has interfered with Jung's acceptance in many scientific circles.
But since others have written about this elsewhere14 I propose to leave this issue aside. In addition to the concepts of archetype and archetypal image, the concept of symbol will also be important for this thesis. The word "symbol" is based on the Greek symbolon, from sym, "together," and bolon or ballein, "to throw or fit.
Each half of the object would serve as a reminder of the friend during his or her absence. Then when the friends were reunited the re-fitting together of the two halves would serve as a kind of proof of his or her identity.
One friend could also entrust half of the object to a further friend or relative and thus show to the holder of the original half that this stranger was entitled to recognition or hospitality. Thus, as Verena Kast puts it, " When we interpret, we seek the invisible reality behind the visible and the connections between the two.
They are indistinct, metaphoric and enigmatic portrayals of psychic reality.
Worked upon that is, reflected upon and related tothey can be recognized as aspects of those images that control, order and give meaning to our lives.
Their source, therefore, can be traced to the archetypes themselves which by way of symbols find more full expression So the theme of this thesis could be expressed in a variety of ways: What does the magician symbolize in human life? What are the aspects of the archetypal image of the magician?
A magician is, of course, a person who does "magic. That is, a magician is a person who can make things happen that wouldn't happen under the normal or familiar laws of nature. Something is transformed in a mysterious way, or disappears, or appears.
We know also, if we reflect on our use of the word, that a "magician" could be an entertainer a "conjuror" or "prestidigitator" or a "real" magician something like a "witch doctor," "medicine man," or, perhaps, "sorcerer".
And such transformations take place in a way which is, literally, extra-ordinary.Contextual Essay. Involuntary Commitment and Recovery: An Innovative Mental Health Peer Support Program.
