The Love-Hate Relationship between Jung and Modern Art

Published: Jun 10, 2019 by International Journal of Jungian Studies (Brill)
Authors: Roula-Maria Dib

This paper takes Jung’s essay ‘Ulysses’ as a case study in order to elucidate his opinion on the relationship between modern artists and mental insanity. The study seeks to contradict a common misconception that Jung ‘diagnoses’ modern artists such as Pablo Picasso and James Joyce with schizophrenia; instead, the paper sheds light on the cultural (not pathological) connections he makes between modern artists and art.
