The IAJS exists to promote and develop Jungian and post-Jungian studies and scholarship on an international basis.
The IAJS is a multidisciplinary association dedicated to the exploration and exchange of views about all aspects of the broader cultural legacy of Jung’s work and the history of analytical psychology. Through the development of Jungian and post-Jungian studies, the IAJS aims to aid the understanding of contemporary cultural trends and the history of psychological and cultural tendencies. For example, the association promotes:
- Scholarship relating analytical psychology to the arts and humanities, social sciences and philosophy as well as clinical, methodological and theoretical research
- The application of the concepts of Jungian and post-Jungian analytical psychology to literature, theatre, film and media studies, religious studies
- Applications in medicine, physics, and the philosophy and history of science
Practice-based research in education, culture, therapy and the arts
