75 H. SPIEGELBERG ON THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF C. G. JUNG john L. Carafides In his recent volume, Phenomenology in Psychology and Psychiatry, Herbert Spiegelberg devotes a page and a half to an appraisal of Jung's phenomenology. 1 His conclusions are that while Jung came close to a phenomenological attitude he had no real link with phenomenological philosophy or its mem- bers.' Jung's phenomenology was, he says, merely a communi- 76 cative device used in response to its growing popularity. In support of this contention he cites changes in some of Jung's titles and subtitles to include the word phenomenology.3 3 Spiegelberg is doubtless correct in his general estimate of Jung's relationship to phenomenology, but until a more detailed investigation of Jung's unpublished papers is conducted a defini- tive statement is still lacking. What I would like to indicate here although not in any detailed way are some features of Jung's thought which Spiegelberg did not mention in his overview. I would, however, like to be explicit in that I am making no claim that Jung was a phenomenologist in the strict sense of the term.
