1 Jan 27/14 Dr. Day, 2B03, Personality, C02 Lecture 10 • Freud believed depression was anger turned towards the Self Jung and Analytic Psychology • Most influential after Freud • His ideas some differed from Freud, which Freud did not seem to like • Jung was not scientific like Freud • His differences with Freud stand in his nature of libido • He agreed we need to hypothesise a source of psychic energy that powers everything we do but he saw libido as life enhancing source, not as purely sexual and aggressive energy as Freud.
