The One Beyond the Many or the Many Beyond the One:
Core Constructs and the Archetypal Quest in
Murdoch’s Nuns and Soldiers

Lucian Blaga University, Sibiu

Given the socio-psychological dimensions of Murdoch’s novel Nuns and Soldiers, I propose Jung’s archetypal-grounded model focused upon the unconscious psychic structure of the individual, and Kelly’s Personal Construct Theory model based on his constructs of guilt, anxiety and aggressiveness. Together, they grant us two significant entry points into the complex minds of Murdoch’s characters and their intensively colored life-experiences.

Murdoch, socio-psychology, Carl Jung, G. A. Kelly, archetype, shadow psychology, individuation, persona, Personal Construct Theory, Aggressiveness (Kellian)
