Carl Jung on “Primitive.” Lexicon





Primitive:

Descriptive of the original, or undifferentiated, human psyche. (See also archaic.)

I use the term “primitive” in the sense of “primordial,” and . . . do not imply any kind of value judgment.

Also, when I speak of a “vestige” of a primitive state, I do not necessarily mean that this state will sooner or later come to an end.

On the contrary, I see no reason why it should not endure as long as humanity lasts.["A Review of the Complex Theory," CW 8, par. 218.]
