Collective Conscious: A New Consideration Between Culture, Psyche, and Religion

Bu makale; kültür, nefs (ruh: psyche), ve din olguları arasındaki ilişkiye ilişkin yeni bir muhasebe sunmaya çalışır. Geçmiş tecrübelerin hem bilinçli hem de bilinç dışı akıl için hayati önem taşımasından ötürü, kolektif bilince karşılık gelen nefs, yalnızca kültürün gizil içeriği olarak değil, dinin de kaynağı olarak tezahür eder. Bu bağlamda kültür de dinin somut görünümünden ibaret olmaktadır. Kısaca, bu makale, sosyal bilimsel din çalışmalarında seçkin akademisyenler Clifford Geertz ve Talcott Parsons’un bakış açılarına özellikle itibar ederek, kolektif bilincin en önemli unsur olduğu yargısına varır.

Collective Conscious: A New Consideration Between Culture, Psyche, and Religion

This essay endeavors to come up with a new consideration regarding the relationship between culture, psyche, and religion. Since previous experiences are crucial to both conscious and unconscious human mind, psyche, which corresponds to collective conscious, not only appears to be the latent content of culture, it also appears to be the source of religion as well. In short, especially leaning upon the perspectives of Clifford Geertz and Talcott Parsons, both eminent scholars in social scientific studies of religion, the essay comes to the conclusion that collective conscious is the most important of all.
