Jung’s ideas about religion can be helpfully clarified as suggesting that religion can help us integrate the archetypes – provided they are not kept in conflict through projection. There is thus a distinction between practical religion that fulfils this need, and dogmatic religion that instead hijacks that function to maintain projected beliefs as the supposed ‘truths’ of religion.
