  • Alexandra Walker
Chapter

Abstract

According to analytical psychology, individual and collective selves are subject to the following organising principles: the individuation process, synchronicity, homeostasis, and the transcendent function. This chapter provides an overview of these principles that will later be applied in the case study of this book.
