ANIMA   A Feminine Lens

Jung’s anima and animus are gendered concepts, and so are Eros and Logos, gendered principles and personifications of the anima and animus as embodied soul and disembodied mind. While Jung said that the “soul of the man is more inclined to Logos than to Eros, which is more characteristic of the essence of the woman,” the gendered nature is held within all men and women.

 

“Wherever Logos rules, there is order” like the “allegory of paradise where there is no struggle and therefore no development is fitting here,” (p. 566). In this mythic narrative, Adam and Eve needed to open their eyes and experientially know the opposition of good and evil, eventually returning to Eden in their reconciliation in the tree of life.

 “The projection-forming factor is the anima. Wherever she appears in dreams, phantasies or visions, she appears personified, thereby demonstrating that basically she possesses all the outstanding characteristics of a female persona."

"The realities subsumed under the concept of 'anima' form an extremely dramatic content of the unconscious. It is possible to describe this concept in rational, scientific language, but in this way one entirely fails to express its living character." C. G. Jung
