(p.1) Introduction Shadows of Enlightenment
Scenes of Projection

Jill H. Casid

University of Minnesota Press

This introductory chapter examines an excerpt of C. G. Jung’s dream of flying instruments of projection in his book Memories, Dreams, Reflections. Metaphors derived from modern philosophical instruments such as telescope, camera obscura, and magic lantern are used as projective apparatuses for the actions of the unconscious part of the mind. The chapter sets out the Scenes of Projection as a structured exercise of narrating the readings from the image projection, and is later used for conducting psychoanalysis. Sigmund Freud had also contributed to the realization of the subject matter.

Keywords:   C. G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, telescope, magic lantern, projective apparatus, unconscious, Scenes of Projection, image projection, psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud
