EFTHIMIADIS-KEITH, Helen. The Memory of Original Wholeness and Conscious Differentiation in Genesis 1:1-2:4a. Old testam. essays [online]. 2017, vol.30, n.2, pp.283-299. ISSN 2312-3621.

Sakkie Spangenberg has written a number of articles dealing with Gen 1-3 in terms of its place in traditional Christian dogma and the paradigm shifts he has experienced in his understanding of this text. In this article, I would like to honour Sakkie by providing a Jungian psychoanalytic interpretation of Gen 1:1-2:4a, focusing primarily on the memory of original wholeness and the conscious differentiation that are reflected in this text. I conclude that the psyche that produced this creation story had stalled at the third stage of individuation as a result of a traumatic experience which caused it to long for its erstwhile memory of original wholeness.

Palabras clave : Genesis; paradigm; Jungian psychoanalysis; wholeness; creation.
