Abstract

As far as possible, Štulhofer's demands ori depth psychology (DI
3, 10-11) are satisfied. The author quotes observations (as made
elsewhere) the results of which may be taken to demonstrate the
collective unconscious. Štulhofer's demands are excessive when
he requires the hypothesis of the collective unconscious to be
verified in a way appropriate to a neurophysiological theory. The
apo ria of the subconscious (its irrationalitiy vs. its functionality)
disappears if the concepts proposed before (DI 3, 9) are applied.
Modernization doesn't always result in an equalization of different
collectives in the sense of permitting them to attain full rationality,
as Štulhofer apparently believes. The USSR may be taken as a
case in which the opposite prevailed.
