VALE, Pablo Rwany Batista Ribeiro do  e  MELO, Walter. Psychology of the number: a junguian analysis about the number and the counting process. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.4, pp. 1-13. ISSN 1809-8908.

In this article, the number is approached as a psychic phenomenon, being analysed from its possibilities and symbolic particularities. Therefore, historical, anthropological, philosophical, mythological, and religious texts on mathematical knowledge were consulted. These texts have been selected in indexed periodicals and well-known scientific books. Then, a movement of understanding was made, based on the theoretical basis of Analytical Psychology by Carl Gustav Jung. As a psychic phenomenon, the number is understood as an archetype that came to consciousness, and as a symbol, that is, as a mystery that has a comprehensible sense. In this context, the number occupies the place of the central psychic image of our interests, around which analogies were made (amplification), a characteristic procedure of the hermeneutic-symbolic method of Analytical Psychology.
