(July 26, 1875 - June 6, 1961)

Welcome to the Carl Jung section the All About Psychology website. From here you will be able to access detailed information and resources relating to one of the most influential and enigmatic thinkers of the 20th century. Increasingly disaffected with the central ideas of his old friend and mentor Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung broke away to establish analytical psychology; a school of inquiry designed to explore the deepest recesses of the human mind.

Jung's revolutionary psychoanalytical approach had a profound impact across a range of diverse fields including, psychology, philosophy, mythology, anthropology, theology and the arts and many of his most influential psychological concepts; archetypes, persona, collective unconsciousness, synchronicity, introvert/extrovert personality types etc, continue to be taught and studied throughout the world today.
