In this episode we discuss Carl Jung; his contributions to the field of psychology and his theory of the archetypes and the collective unconscious.
As we delve into Jung’s theories, we also explore his archetypes in the media, the ones we identify with and how our quickly changing society may or may not be affected by the collective unconscious. New research suggests that we may inherit psychological and psychic attributes from our ancestors. How does this affect our understanding of ourselves and society? Have our stories been written for us or do we have the ability to transcend the roles we have inherited or adopted from the collective unconscious?
We may have discovered more questions than answers but one thing’s for certain; Michael Scott from The Office is an archetype unto himself – all of them.
