journey to the deep Unconscious
Analytical psychology approaches psychotherapy and depth analysis in the tradition established by the Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Gustav Jung.
As originally defined, it is distinguished by focusing on the role of symbolic and spiritual experiences in human life. It rests on Jung’s theory of archetypes and the existence of deep psychic space or collective unconscious. Following Jung’s original work, ongoing research in his tradition incorporated findings from other disciplines and schools of depth psychology, making analytical psychology a vibrant and growing field of inquiry and therapeutic innovation.

The topic of emotion and evolution typically brings to mind Charles Darwin’s classic treatise, Emotions in Man and Animals. He observed that certain emotions are expressed similarly across species, especially closely related species, suggesting that these emotions are phylogenetically conserved.
According to modern evolutionary theory, different emotions evolved at different times: primal emotions, filial emotions and, later on, social emotions. Evolutionary psychologists consider human emotions to be best adapted to our ancestors’ lives in nomadic foraging bands.
