Abstract/Summary

This project explains that archetypes are generic models for specific objects or persons and are naturally irrepresentable but they have effects that enable us to visualize them, through archetypal images (Steven 46). To attain these archetypal images, the ideas have to go through the subjective-objective-subjective process. We must first recognize that archetypes are based from myths , therefore, subjective, derived from our personal and individual experiences (Hall 2). These subjective ideas are then taken in by social institutions, preserved as an imprint, paired with representational codes turning them into objective ideas (Berger 16). Finally, these ideas are passed on, to be perceived uniquely by each individual, allowing the new generation to create subjective ideas, once again, about reality and the world , giving birth to the archetypal images (Stevens 39).
