Biology Of The Archetype

by Mark B. Holtkamp

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
This book treats of the biological, more specifically, the neurobiological, underpinnings of the Jungian archetypes. Much has been said over the years regarding Jung’s concept of the archetype. What has been missing from the discussion up to this point, however, has been a critical examination of the archetypes' neurobiology. This book principally addresses the neurobiological bases underlying the archetypes, all of which can be readily explained using nothing more than current-day mainstream neuroscience. It is the first volume of a two volume set. The second volume, which addresses the relationships between the archetypes’ neurobiology and the archetypes' psychology and psychiatry, is forthcoming.
The concept of the archetype - a concept first made famous in the modern era by the medical psychologist Carl Gustav Jung - is, as the term expressly indicates, a predisposed type. The type in question, the predisposing psychological and psychiatric type, as well as its underlying biology, is the subject matter of the present work Biology of the Archetype. While the psychology of the archetype and the many formal considerations attending it were treated by Jung in very considerable detail, the biology of the archetype was treated by him to a much lesser degree, and the situation has not changed appreciably since. Some efforts in the field of evolutionary psychology and psychiatry have proven productive in this regard, having successfully identified much of the evolved behavioral biology underpinning the archetypes; but what has been conspicuously missing, and what this work principally addresses, is the neurobiology of the archetypes. This work represents the first volume of a two volume set. The companion volume, which addresses the relationship of the archetypes' neurobiology to the psychology and psychiatry of the archetypes, as well as the implicated mental disorders, is forthcoming.
