This thesis attempts a hermeneutic, historical-comparative study of the understanding of the person in Jung's psychology and Berdyaev's philosophy. Its focus- although it is not theological in the strict sense of the term- is on the Christian understanding of the person as imago dei, not on the current psychological co~cept of personality. The , person as imago dei is interpreted as corresponding to the Self in Jungian psychology. The thesis identifies in the concept of personality a point of convergence between the psychological and philosophical-anthropological point of view, based on the hypothesis that personality, if it exists, is as much a psychological as a spiritual reality. It sees the inevitable transgression of Jung's psychology into the fields of philosophy and theology (which in Berdyaev's case coalesce into 'theosophy') as a consequence of his attempt to develop a holistic view of psychic process centred in the concept of the person.
