Title
Kierkegaard and Jung on the Self
Abstract

Is it possible for theology and psychology to complement each other in their respective visions of the self? To answer this question some correlations can be drawn between a theology such as Soren Kierkegaard's (with its analyses, for example, of the finite and infinite components of the self, despair, man's becoming in time, and God as an effective Power) and a psychology such as Carl Jung's (with its analyses of the ego and the collective unconscious, neurosis, the process of individuation, and God as an effective Archetype). These correlations will demonstrate that a complementarity is not only possible between theology and psychology, but of mutual benefit to both.
