Lecture: The Unnecessary War: Neurosis and Inner Conflict
Neurosis is a war within the personality, a conflict which distorts the normal functioning of the anima/animus, places undue emphasis on the persona, and maintains an unreal “self”. Although the activity of the Archetypal Self works to repair the neurotic mistake, it requires the consciousness and activity of the ego for success. This discussion will also include suggestions for the self-treatment of neurotic patterns.
