Carl Jung: Projection and your neighbor


Carl Jung:  The unconscious person projects on his neighbor


The blinder love is, more more it is instinctual, and the more it is attended by destructive consequences, for it is a dynamism that needs form and direction.

Therefore a compensatory Logos has been joined to it as a light that shines in the darkness.

A man who is unconscious of himself acts in a blind, instinctive way and is in addition fooled by all the illusions that arise when he sees everything that he is not conscious of in himself coming to meet him from outside as projections upon his neighbour.
