Tackling Climate Change – Jung’s View

Tackling Climate Change – Insights From C.G. Jung’s Depth Psychology

G. Jung. The article unfolds the emerging field of climate psychology and explores the cognitive dissonance behind public reactions to the phenomenon of climate change before explaining central Jungian concepts and their relevance to addressing the deeper personal, social, and cultural aspects of climate change.
