Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies

by C.G. Jung, R.F.C. Hull (Translator)

While Jung is known mainly for his theories on the nature of the unconscious mind, he did have an interest in the paranormal. In this essay, Jung applies his analytical skills to the UFO phenomenon. Rather than assuming that the modern prevalence of UFO sightings are due to extraterrestrial craft, Jung reserves judgment on their origin & connects UFOs with archetypal imagery, concluding that they have become a “living myth.” This essay is intriguing in its methodology & implications as to the nature of UFOs & their relation to the human psyche.
