Brenda Murrow: A Jungian Discussion on Suicide

From antiquity, humans have faced the phenomena of suicide. Throughout history, all the way back to the Romans and Greeks, through the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and up to current age, social beliefs have varied on suicide.  This phenomena then, by definition, must have archetypal roots. 

In this discussion, Jung’s work on death and suicide will be explored. Passive thoughts about death are actually a normal part of adolescence.  Yet, all rates of suicide are on the rise nationally.  The ways in which Jung’s thoughts might apply to these trying times will also be considered.
