Title
Integrating Psychology and Theology with Bricolage: A Response to Griffin
Abstract

Although the writings of C.G. Jung may very well inspire an adequate integration of psychology and theology, they do not provide it ready-made. This is due to three characteristics of Jung the writer and commentator-€”that he was a bricoleu, and alchemist, and a therapist. This is to say, he put together in handyman fashion (bricoleu) imagistic impressions of his work in the laboratory (alchemist) which was his consulting room (therapist). Because Jung was sensitive to the problem of modernism in his own experience and in that of his patients, his writings amount to a "€œbricolage"€ lying somewhere between the contemporary individual'€™s inchoate longings and the integration of psychology and theology which is yet to be articulated.
