Clinical epistemology: A discussion and proposal for the application of Jungian concepts to the problem of assessment

26 July 1991


It is argued that scientific method prevents the formation of an adequate psychology, in that the human experience it seeks to represent is in some ways not amenable to reduction. It is suggested that the epistemological basis of psychology be expanded to include aesthetic and mythic ways of thinking, as well as scientific. Jungian psychology is discussed as the prototype for such an expansion, and a method for the interpretation of Rorschach responses is introduced as an example of its potential application.
