Mathematics, like myth and the poetics of dreams, is a language of the Unus Mundus.
Mathematics may seem to have little connection to psychology, but as a product of the mind, and as a bridge to a unified world of psyche and matter, it is uniquely relevant. Its objects are both invented and discovered. They are not fixed, but undergo a kind of alchemy, so it is not surprising there has been a connection to analytical psychology from the beginning.

In 1916, C. G. Jung compared his psychological transcendent function to a mathematical function of the same name; his later exchange of ideas with the mathematical physicist Wolfgang Pauli linked complexes, complex numbers and the formalism used to describe atoms. The word ‘analysis’ applies to a direction in psychology starting around 1900, and to the most important branch of
mathematics from the 17th century on.

In this course, we will look at developments in the history of mathematics from the Pythagoreans to Cantor’s sets and gauge transformations in quantum field theories, exploring ideas to do with infinities and symmetries, aspects of the transcendent and the Unus Mundus shared with Jung’s new science.
 
 
PETER HOLLAND, MD, is a psychiatrist in private practice in Aptos, CA, and an analyst member of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. Mathematics has been a pastime and a habit for many years, dating back to a previous career in theoretical physics. He is known to relax by working out a mathematical proof on the back of an envelope.
