SAUTCHUK, Eduardo Arruda  and  FILLUS, Michel Alexandre. Synchronicity: relations between the Jungian work and new theoretical propositions. Junguiana [online]. 2020, vol.38, n.2, pp. 103-120. ISSN 2595-1297.

Synchronicity is one of the most complex and important concepts of analytical psychology. The present article is a literature review that seeks to present the concept within the classical Jungian view, as an alternative to the causality paradigm, and then to present new contributions from contemporary authors about the theme. Possible dialogues between synchronicity and other areas of knowledge were investigated. It has been verified that there is a current line of thought based on the theory of Complex Adaptive Systems (CASs) that conveys an important change of perspective about the synchronistic phenomenon. In addition, contributions about the notion of time within the synchronicity and the philosophical basis of Jungian hypothesis are presented as complementary points to the discussion. Synchronicity, in conclusion, is beyond an improbable coincidence: it can represent an important dynamic factor in the self-organization propriety of psyche. ■
