Psychology as a human science is a broad field in which there are several traditions, most notably psychoanalysis, phenomenology and hermeneutics, feminist and other critical, deconstructive approaches. Most Jungian publications now reflect these influences as well.
Both Duquesne University and Jungian psychology have been pioneers in the development of psychology as an indigenously human science, in the traditions known as the Geisteswissenschaften. Both are concerned primarily with questions of meaning in symptoms and psychological phenomena, the nature of psychological evidence for descriptive and interpretative methods, self-reflection on our own foundations, our embeddedness in history, culture, and language, what it means to be a person, embodied, gendered, and conscious.
