In this article, the writer discusses the collective unconscious and comunally shared ideas and looks at how this relates to myths. The writer compares the various beliefs of Freud and Jung in this regard. The writer notes that unlike the personal ideas of the area of the unconscious that are specific to the individual, the idea of the collective unconscious suggests that the human community shares certain specific, particular concepts or stories known as myths. Further, the writer points out that although these ideas are not articulated upon the surface, they are made evident in the myths and stories produced by the community.
