Quote of the day

Empirical Psychology loved, until recently, to explain the "unconscious" as mere absence of consciousness--the term itself indicates as much--just as shadow is an absence of light. Today, accurate observation of unconscious processes has recognized, with all other ages before us, that the unconscious possesses a creative autonomy such as a mere shadow could never be endowed with.
