This work offers a detailed analysis of the intellectual and historical contexts of Carl Gustav Jung's (1875-1961) psychology. Jung, a paradigmatic figure in the twentieth-century psychology, appears in this study as a modern myth-maker devoted to finding a therapeutic cure against the symbolic impoverishment of Western culture. The author examines how Jung conceived his ideas within the framework of various cultural and symbolic forms and produced a new kind of depth psychology that was based on the mythification of man´s "inner nature".
