What a fucking embarrassment. How can anyone take psychosoup babel from people like jung (freud or peterson [the giants]) seriously? They must have brain damage or be very insecure

Surely this red one was the devil, but my devil. That is, he was my joy, the joy of the serious person, who keeps watch alone on the high tower—his red-colored, red-scented, warm bright red joy. Not the secret joy in his thoughts and in his looking, but that strange joy of the world that comes unsuspected like a warm southerly wind with swelling fragrant blossoms and the ease of living. You know it from your poets, this seriousness, when they expectantly look toward what happens in the depths, sought out first of all by the devil because of their springlike joy. It picks up men like a wave and drives them forth. Whoever tastes this joy forgets himself. And there is nothing sweeter than forgetting oneself. And not a few have forgotten what they are. But even more have taken root so firmly that not even the rosy wave is able to uproot them. They are petrified and too heavy, while the others are too light.

Jung, The Red Book, p. 260)

So was Jung an actual gnostic?

Yes, he was gnostic. Archetypes are Platonic perfect forms

Gnosticism is a mix of Platonism and Judaism. Jung wasn’t a strict platonist, he also believed in Jewish concepts like Satan, angels and demons etc

Christianity as a whole is a mix of platonism and judaism.

No, it isn’t. It is different from Platonism and it is different from Gnosticism

Jung is a mix of interesting ideas and magical thinking hoaxshit.

I can see why artists like him because he absolutely does get at something with the archetypes and symbols acting on the unconcious mind.

The unconcious has been relegated to the "reptile brain" in modern thinking, with just vauge definitions like stress. This isn't correct. Only about 50 bits of information make it to conciousness, while the brain is running at 38 petroflops. However, the parts of your brain that deal with complex literature of mathematics don't go dark when you focus on bowling or Vidya or sex. They are still running.

Hence you have Einstein having a breakthrough on special relativity while watching painters and day dreaming. Indeed, many mathematical break throughs come when people are NOT focusing on problems. The recursive system of perception we have access too massively cuts down on data.

So he is right there, but he also puts in all sorts of falsifiable junk.

As flawed as Dennett's Conciousness Explained and Pinker's How the Mind Works are, something like these should be ready before Jung so people know where modern neuroscience has proved him laughably wrong.

Where I have found Jung useful is my personal life. Jungian literary analysis, like Robert A. Johnson's He have helped me make sense of life through myths and with self reflection.

He also got me interested in Gnosticism which inspired me to read a lot of philosophy. Whole I ultimately grew to reject Gnosticism for Boehme's creation as God coming to know itself, and Hegel's meaning through negation, I never would have made it there without Jung.

In what sense?

The fact that Jung may have been treating his functional form of schizophrenia, and at the very least used it as a form of self existential therapy makes the book alone a masterpiece. It's not so much what the words or messages written are, but the book's tone, structure, and path it follows through Jung's subconscious that makes it amazing.

But I'm a practicing therapist, so stuff like that is relevant to my field of interests. It's not a book authored with the intent of mass marketing or identifying with the stories.
