Post The Psychology of Complementation
The Psychology of Complementation - an argument against psychology's focus on integration

Abstract: Complementation is put forward as an enhancement of the ruling paradigm in psychology. It is defined as the flow of libido (psychic energy) back to the unconscious. The one-sided focus on the integration of the unconscious has deleterious consequences, as it implies that libido must flow only in the conscious direction. It becomes an impediment to individuation. Also, notions of 'integration' and 'wholeness' may have destructive consequences for the social situation in society. Carl Jung's book "Answer to Job" is criticized. The theological concept of 'incarnation' corresponds to the psychological concept of 'integration'. But incarnation is counterbalanced by the glorification of God, which is equally essential. The 'sacrifice', in comparative history of religion, is analyzed in terms of providing for the divine sphere. In psychology, there ought to be a corresponding focus on providing for the unconscious.

Keywords: Gnosticism, alchemy, scintilla, sacrifice, disidentification, Neo-Paganism, Man of Sorrows, sexual cult, Answer to Job, Cultural Marxism.
