VECHI, Luís Gustavo. Unus mundus and world view in analytical psychology. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.3, pp.941-958. ISSN 1677-1168.

This article characterizes the world view of Jungian psychology based on the concept of unus mundus. A sample with articles by Jung, his commentators and authors of Quantum Physics was analyzed using Jungian hermeneutics. The results were organized according to the following analysis categories: "the invisible plane underlying the empirical level of reality as totality and unity", "the invisible plane as the source of creation and movement", "the invisible plane as marked by non-locality" and "the psyche and the invisible plane"” The main conclusion that can be drawn is one of a worldview in which the empirical reality is seen as grounded in an implied/invisible order which is considered to be a source of creation, movement, unity, non-causal connection and unconditioned by time and space. Archetype is considered a "bridge" between the psyche and the invisible order, and synchronicity as evidence of this connection.

Keywords : Analytical psychology; World view; Archetype; Synchronicity.
