This paper discusses "The Theory of Psychoanalysis," which Carl Jung wrote in critique of Sigmund Freud's theories. The writer explains that by criticizing and offering explanations for the holes in Freud's theory, Jung attempted to make his version of psychoanalytical technique more palatable to critics of the psychoanalytical community. The writer then points out the strengths and flaws in Jung's work, and concludes that even if his ideas do not meet modern standards of empirical evidence, they still have merit based on a philosophical perspective.
