The psychology behind Star Wars




Via Myths-Dreams-Symbols: "People say that commercial narrative films aren’t worth analysing from a Jungian perspective. That you instead should look to more psychological films. But Jung was interested in the collectivesub-consious. If a film then is consciously Jungian then it isn’t subcunsious content that was being portrayd, but consciously Jungian content. So I say, that if you want to look for subconscious archetypes or proof for Jungs theories, you need to look at the commersial narrative film, which is not made for psychological self-realization, but to earn money. It is there the real proof for that Jung’s subconscious archetypes really exists.

"If you take the time to analyse Star Wars you will se, as Gorge Lucas “A great classic hero saga, dealing with the classical questions about religion and history based on a psychological theme, played out in the futuristic setting of space”1

"I will try to show a little of the main psychology in the film, and also point out the main archetypal characters." Read the article: The psychology behind Star Wars by Miners Brunn
