A teoria dos complexos culturais: uma perspectiva junguiana do social

Cauan Esplugues Silva, Carlos Augusto Serbena

Resumo


Este artigo realiza uma análise conceitual da teoria dos Complexos Culturais, nas obras de Samuel Kimbles e Thomas Singer. A teoria dos Complexos Culturais pode ser utilizada como uma forma de análise de conflitos intergrupais, é essencialmente a descrição de uma sociologia interna. Esta revisão tem como objetivo apresentar uma síntese atual e crítica do conceito. Temas como integração, telos, e a presença dos Complexos Culturais na prática clínica e algumas críticas ao conceito são apresentados. Percebe-se a presença de conceitos complementares que buscam dar suporte a esta teoria. Por fim, observa-se a manutenção de uma estrutura base deste conceito, ainda que contribuições tenham sido constatadas ao longo das obras analisadas, principalmente na utilização de conceitos que buscam complementar a descrição da dinâmica dos Complexos Culturais.


Palavras-chave
