Abstract

In this project, we offered an examination of the work of Yehuda Halevi and Carl Jung. The thesis for this project is that these two thinkers offer very similar perspectives on a number of ideas, central of which is the dichotomy between the use primacy of the intellect and the imaginative faculty of man. While other researchers in passing with one another frequently mention these two thinkers, a full examination of their works has not been offered before. This project will offer a unique exploration of the works of Jung and Halevi.

While the examination of the dichotomy between the primacy of the intellect and the imaginative faculty plays a central, pivotal position in this examination, other topics will emerge as key ideas in establishing the affiliation between Halevi and Jung. These topics include symbolism and the relative situating of rational thought in each thinkers system of thought.

This project will rely on the Halevi's Kuzari, a number of Jung's writings that compose this Collected Works and a recently published the Red Book. A number of secondary sources presented by other researchers will also be offered as commentary on the primary work of Halevi and Jung.
