Jung who left Freud to individuate on his own created a path…

Diego,

I am curious about your statement that Jung Americans “have shaped their own cultural complexes onto the Swiss Psychiatrist and that they bring a shadow of cultural dissociation that brought them into a folie a deux.”

In my understanding, Jung who left Freud to individuate on his own created a path for each analyst to be his own person.  He didn’t want people to become Jungians, as their was only one Jungian, Carl Jung.

As he wrote in a letter, ““I can only hope, and wish, that no one becomes ‘Jungian’” ( Letters, Vol. 1, 1973, p. 405).”

It is my understanding that he set us free to be ourselves and follow other theorists and make up our own way to be a “Jungian” analyst. We each figure out how to help each individual patient and as Jung advised,
treat the theory lightly.

Best,
