This paper examies the use of the word "archaic" in the psychology of Carl. G. Jung. Through the study of the use of this word and various, related words, e.g., "primitive," the reader may begin to appreciate more, fully Jung's perspective on time. Though the paper is primarily descriptive, it does attempt to offer some insight into one particular facet of Jung's use of "archaic" and "primitive," that is, how these words relate to Jung's relationship toward religion. Finally, Jung's positions toward time and toward religion are compared with those of Sigmund Freud, so that a better understanding of both may be gained through contrast.
