The paper discusses Jung's relationship with Sigmund Freud and addresses the debate over whether he was a Nazi sympathizer. The paper then focuses on Jung's psychoanalytical theory and how it divides the human psyche into three basic parts. The goal of Jungian theory, the basic archetypes in his theory and Jung's guiding principles of operation for the human psyche are all identified in the paper. The paper notes that Jung based his theory of personality largely on his own subjective experiences, rather than on data obtained from objective experiments or constructs learned from reading established medical textbooks or journals.

From the Paper:

"The most commonly recognized name associated with modern psychology is Sigmund Freud. As a keen observer, astute record taker, and perceptive clinician and interviewer, Freud was able to build one of the most influential paradigms in modern psychology - the field of psychoanalysis. Freud's work spanned decades and through his teachings and research attracted a large number of students, many of whom became lauded independent theorists and clinicians in their own right, such as Adler, Horney, and Carl Jung. Each founded their basic ideology within the broader confines of psychoanalysis as conceived of by Sigmund Freud, but each overlaid their own unique perspectives on humanity. Perhaps the most pervasive, enlightening, and philosophical of these perspectives is that of Carl Jung, as outlaid in his Analytical Theory (also called Jungian Theory)."
