Title: L'altro. Uno studio sull'individuazione femminile.
Abstract: The female psychology dominates this third and final year of research, with a particular focus on the development of the female awareness through time. The topic has been critically analysed starting from Jung’s studies and postulating its alterity from the western culture. Highly relevant in the research the analysis of Neumann’s works. The evolution of the male/patriarchal awareness leads to a complete perception of the western culture and, consequently, to set the link with its opposite: the East and the female. The dissertation aims at affirming the relevance of the identification of that part of the human psyche which was buried in the deep unconscious with no rational reason. Jung laid the foundations for the subject. Based on his own theories, the research focuses on the female perspective by comparing it with the male one and highlighting analogies and discrepancies. Moving on, psychology originates from the human need to balance its unconscious, along with the exacerbation of the rational perspective during the 19th century. Moreover today’s lack of emotional involvement in the Christian symbolism produced a sense of uncertainty typical of the weakening of the sacred world. The goal is to recover spirituality by revaluing the visceral dimension, inherent to both the East and the female, of the human existence. And to set it, an examination of psychology and a series of learnings widely tagged as obscure and obsolete is required: mythology, alchemy, shamanism and tantric-yoga. Revaluating the psyche as human’s entirety links the scientific method and the irrational which characterized the archaic rituals and plays a crucial role in human’s self and social balance. The research does not result in a finish line. It rather discloses an alternative perspective on the psychological analysis of the modern society, which can help in postulating the female future evolution. To sum up, a change in perspective seems essential to unlock classical issues.
