Therefore, Jung’s perspective on culture paradoxically resembles both the medieval world-view and certain contemporary perspectives such as postmodernism. This chapter has critically examined from Jung’s perspective some of the dominant images of development, which are often associated with progress, advancement, and betterment; change; and nature and nurture. I have looked at an alternative Jungian perspective on psychological development, which is concerned with continuous processes that do not necessarily entail linear Psychological development 29 progress but can be interpreted in various ways; integration of projections, compensation of opposites, creation of the third, and symbolisation which could all be called individuation; outgrowing, with its spontaneous, cyclical, paradoxical, and symbolic aspects; change and stability, which together form a system of self-regulation that has a self-nurturing or self-cultivating characteristic; and nature and culture, which represent not the inner and outer conditions but the psychical and the spiritual aspects of a human being.

70). 8 However, Jung seems here to use the German word ‘Progression’ with a different implication. Gottfried Heuer drew my attention to the German word ‘Fortschrittsgläubigkeit’. In this word, ‘Fortschritt’ (progress) and ‘Gläubigkeit’ (trustfulness) are combined, but the meaning of the word is quite different from ‘progress’. ‘Fortschrittsgläubigkeit’ means blind belief; for example, that ‘a technical progress is the same as a betterment of humanity’ (Heuer, personal communication, 2000). Jung might have had in mind this kind of excessive belief which should be distinguished from the idea of development: it is merely an illusion or an effect of projections to believe that humanity is progressing.

Moreover, Jung doubts that regressive fantasies are always sexually oriented and cause neurosis. He writes: ‘I do not even seek the reason for regression in primary incestuous or any other sexual desires’ and that ‘a purely sexual aetiology of neurosis seems to me much too narrow’ (1916, para. 565). For Jung, childhood itself cannot be pathological and therefore cannot be the direct determinant of neurosis. For Jung, what distinguishes normal from neurotic is not regressive fantasies, which can be observed in both normal and neurotic cases, but the presence of actual conflict.
