Man – powerless to save himself

August 23, 2009

Freud has unfortunately overlooked the fact that man has never
yet been able single‑handed to hold his own against the powers of
darkness — that is, of the unconscious. Man has always stood in need
of the spiritual help which each individual’s own religion held out to
him.

Carl Jung, quoted by Hans Küng

It’s one thing to diagnose the illness – prescribing an effective treatment is another.
