Chapter 1: Working with cultural phantoms through cultural complexes

cover image for Intergenerational Complexes in Analytical Psychology

This chapter on Working with cultural phantoms through cultural complexes from Intergenerational Complexes in Analytical Psychology by Samuel L. Kimbles explores the author’s discovery of and interest in the idea of “cultural phantoms” and how they express intergenerational conflicts that have not been processed psychologically.

Kimbles shows the value of taking each representation as a bid to continue to what is still unresolved because it is unworked through. It shows how often this is a question of grief over violence that first occurred in a prior historical and cultural context and that still has the power to create dynamics that bid for attention to the original trauma.
