The editor applauds and encourages the recent inclusion of psychoanalytic theory in mainstream settings

By Kristi Pikiewicz

Jung's time has come! Psychoanalytic thought is being talked about in mainstream settings. For example, Eugene Sadler-Smith, professor of organizational behavior at the University of Surrey, U.K., who studies intuition in business and managerial settings said in a recent interview, "As a social psychologist, I've avoided the collective unconscious in many ways. Having said that, I think there's a lot in Jung's take on intuition that has yet to be exploited and understood. I don't know the answer, but my intuition tells me there's a lot more in Jung's work and that maybe his time has come."

He also said, "If your body keeps telling you, if it's an intuitive feeling that won't let go, tapping you on the shoulder - you can put it to one side, you can discount it and ignore it - I think that when it won't let go, the body is usually telling you something worth listening to."

Let's continue the push these dialogs into the mainstream setting, for example on our Psychology Today blog, which has had over 15,000 readers in the past two months. As Jung said, let's, "kindle a light in the darkness of mere being."
