Abstract

This paper uses the concept of apophasis as a lens to investigate certain features of analytical psychology. It makes six assertions: The role of negation is a neglected aspect of the disagreement between Freud and Jung; Freud and Jung are equally, but differently, negative; negation is the way forward for analytical psychology; where transference was, imagination shall be; ignorance is a key learning outcome in psychotherapy training; the aim of analysis is ecstacy.
