Polly Young-Eisendrath and Terrence Dawson’s text offers remarkable information about Jungian concepts. One of the students in my spring quarter, 2011, Advanced Theories: Jungian course quoted the following in his final synthesis paper:
Jung enters the conversation of opposites, lets each side have its say, endures the struggle between the opposing point of view, suffers the anguish of being strung out between them, greets the resolving symbol with gratitude. The psyche, says Jung, arrives at a third point of view that includes the essence of each conflicting perspective while at the same time combining them into a new symbol. We must enter this process and cooperate with it if we are to be fully—and ethically—engaged in living. (Ulanov, as cited in Young-Eisendrath & Dawson, 2009, p. 328)
