Presentation at 2012 ORI Annual Conference, Voyages Into the Internal World: Archetypes, Internal Objects, and Internal Saboteurs:

THE ARCHETYPE OF THE SABOTEUR: SELF-SABOTAGE FROM A JUNGIAN PERSPECTIVE - Dr. Michael Adams

Are “objects” and “archetypes” just different names for the same thing?  To answer this question, Jungian psychoanalyst Michael Vannoy Adams will analyze the function of sabotage in the psyche.  He will define what object relations psychologists mean by the “internal saboteur,” discuss the saboteur as a “bad object,” and then interpret, from a Jungian perspective, a dream that explicitly features the archetype of the saboteur.        

“There is no entry for “saboteur” in the index to the Collected Works of Jung (or, for that matter, in the index to the Standard Edition of Freud).  I know of no occasion when Jung so much as mentions the saboteur.  Sabotage is, however, a typical situation in life, and, in that respect, the saboteur is what Jung means by an archetype.   

…There are important similarities between object relations psychoanalysis and Jungian psychoanalysis, and there are important differences.  Some differences are theoretical and practical, while other differences are terminological.  Object relations psychoanalysis emphasizes objects, while Jungian psychoanalysis emphasizes images.  In a sense, what object relations psychoanalysis calls “objects,” Jungian psychoanalysis calls “images” – among them, “archetypal images.”
