By C. G. Jung, John Beebe
The concept that of masculinity was once an important not just to Jung's innovative theories of the human psyche, but additionally to his personal own improvement. If, as Jung believed, "modern guy is already so darkened that not anything past the sunshine of his personal mind illuminates his world," then it truly is necessary to express each guy the boundaries of his knowing and the way to beat them. In Aspects of the Masculine Jung does this via revealing his most vital insights in regards to the nature and motivations of masculinity, either unsleeping and subconscious, and explaining how this impacts the improvement of the character. delivering a different standpoint at the masculine, established upon either his own and medical studies, Jung asks questions that stay as insistent as ever. He bargains solutions that--whether they shock, surprise or edify--challenge us to reconsider our modern knowing of masculinity.

I must refrain from going into this question more deeply at present, as I would prefer to discuss the incest problem at the end of this book. Here I would only point out that the incest motif is bound to arise, because when the regressing libido is introverted for internal or external reasons it always reactivates the parental imagos and thus apparently re-establishes the infantile relationship. 66 It is this sexual character that now gives rise to the incest symbolism. Since incest must be avoided at all costs, the result is either the death of the son-lover or his self-castration as punishment for the incest he has committed, or else the sacrifice of instinctuality, and especially of sexuality, as a means of preventing or expiating the incestuous longing.
That Mercurius was for Jung the archetype of the unconscious tells us finally how masculine Jung’s approach to the unconscious was. Despite his androgyny, Mercurius is a quintessentially masculine god, although not every masculinity will be grounded in this mythologem. So, not even this penetrating essay can be the last word on the masculine. Mercurius is, however, the archetype through which Jung came to understand his own psychological style. This piece stands among Jung’s other writings like an ancient herm, an erect phallus placed by the Greeks at the gateways to new territories in honor of Hermes, who became the Roman Mercurius and the patron saint of alchemy.
450 This is a primitive way of describing the libido’s entry into the interior world of the psyche, the unconscious. There, through its introversion and regression, contents are constellated which till now were latent. These are the primordial images, the archetypes, which have been so enriched with individual memories through the introversion of libido as to become perceptible to the conscious mind, in much the same way as the crystalline structure latent in the saturated solution takes visible shape from the aggregation of molecules.
