Abstract

This paper traces the evolution of Jung’s ideas on the collective and Bion’s ideas on groups stemming from their personal experiences during WWI and their respective observational studies. A comparison of their psychoid and proto-mental concepts on the basis of this historical development demonstrates an overlap in their understandings of social phenomena but a divergence in their primary interests and hence in the application of their concepts.
