MERCADO, Javier. Rodolfo Kusch and Carl Gustav Jung: contributions for a symbolic understanding of andean worldview. Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2017, n.52, pp.13-26. ISSN 1668-8104.

We intend to investigate the relationship between the work of Carl Gustav Jung and the thought of the Argentinian philosopher Rodolfo Kusch. This study is based on the explicit references repeatedly made by Kusch in different texts of the Swiss psychiatrist. There is an effective and verifiable link we can understand through the category of “reception” (in the sense of Gadamer-Jauss). This reception of Jung’s work becomes a dialogue rather than an uncritical reproduction. Kusch’s work suspends the search of academical originality; above all it aims to articulate concepts of Western tradition (from the fields of philosophy, anthropology and psychology mainly) to understand the cultural horizon which has forged the thought of the amautas. This global objective invites to consolidate, modify and engulf the Jungian approach to build a creative dialogue but not a mere application. To accomplish this task, we’ll focus with special emphasis on the notions of “symbol”, “opposite” and “balance”; and also we’ll try to see if the idea of “geoculture” -a main category of Kusch’s thought- has some background in Jung’s work
