Primordial Psyche might be useful for any clinical research to the
new approach to psychosis and the ancestral mind.Developing
and expanding a Jungian perspective Diego Pignatelli brings
new
invaluable insights to psychotic phenomena and its ancestral
prototype: the ancestral brain.
Th rough a Jungian framework, Pignatelli discusses borderline
psychoses and schizophrenic phenomena which have their ancestral
roots in a wide range of unconscious and numinous phenomena
originating in the collective unconscious. He examines fascinating
areas such as ethnology, shamanism, transpersonal psychology,
anthropology, tantra,Hinduism,and primitive folk psychologies,
Pignatelli sheds new light on the connection between the
Primal Mind, spiritual and visionary experiences and Jungian
psychology.
