- Archetypes are unlearned
- They function to organise how we experience certain things, often evoking emotions
- Jung viewed our primitive past as forming the basis of the human psyche, directing and influencing present behaviour
- Jung noted that symbols and images from different cultures are often very similar because they have emerged from the archetypes shared by whole human race
- Archetypes are not accessible…
