The Upward and Downward Paths of the Spirit

Abstract: Psychology has a focus on the integration of the
unconscious--the process is regarded essential to the individuation,
development, and emancipation of personality. The article argues that
this view is one-sided. In order to achieve a balanced view of the Self
it is necessary to restore the traditional view of spiritual
development, representing the path "upwards" toward divine union
(henosis). Projections of the unconscious archetype do not only serve
the purpose of psychological integration--in terms of Neoplatonism they
may also serve as vehicles for spiritual ascent.

Keywords: projection, Neoplatonism, Trinity, archetype, individuation,
Dionysus, Cusanus, Iamblichus, coincidentia oppositorum, C.G. Jung.
