Carl Jung Ancient genealogy suffers from four marked defects
Ancient genealogy suffers from four marked defects:
it can hardly be disentangled from mythology;
it is fragmentary, frequently unreliable and contradictory;
it confuses tribal origins with individual names;
it is artificial in that often its main purpose is to offer a descent that would allow a person to qualify for office, priestly or secular.
The psyche is nothing different from the living being.
It is the psychical aspect of the living being. It is even the psychical aspect of matter. It is a quality. ~Carl Jung; Conversations with Carl Jung and Richard L. Evans
