Suetin T.A. Reflections of Psyche

Published in journal "Psychology and Psychotechnics", 2015-9 in rubric "Inner world", pages 891-904.

Resume: The present article is devoted to the essence of human soul and transformations of the images of soul in the human mind, culture and society. The concept of soul and its features is based on the thoughts and ideas of ancient philosophers. In his article Suetin examines the influence of technological and information progress as well as the massive nature of culture on spiritual qualities of human. According to the researcher, the main reason for the impoverishment of spiritual qualities is the prevailing interest in material benefits and man's rationalized assessment of the surrounding world, interpersonal relatinos, art and society. Suetin analyzes the development of the concept of human soul and perception of images of human soul in ancient, existential, social and religious philosophies and classical psychoanalysis as well as medical evidences of the out-of-body experience. The scientific novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the researcher views feelings and emotions of human in their true form as they are attributable to the spiritual system. In addition, Suetin also analyzes the process of materialization of the sensual world in accordance with the social development trends. The blindfold aspiration for material benefits and technologies is viewed as the main cause of the reification of the human spiritual system which new image acquires the material property of temporary existence. The unconscious is viewed as a natural feature of the spiritual system, the wealth of knowledge and experience of earthly existence.

Keywords: human, soul, philosophy, society, religion, unconscious, massive nature, culture, emotions and feelings, existence
