L. M. Ogorodnov. The Valkyrie Psychology: A Role Analysis of the Myth of Brunhilde

The author concentrates on the analysis of the "Valkyrie complex" which he regularly encounters in his consulting practice. The analysis is being made from the position of the role interactions of a woman who faces the necessity of making a choice between femininity and social activity. In order to make the analysis a model is being suggested, which is based on the plot from the Scandinavian "Voellsung Saga".

G. B. Bednenko, S. Shnajdman. Smith Archetype in Akkadian-Sumerian Mythology

The image of the divine Blacksmith is common in many cultures, which are familiar with metallurgy. This is an integrated personality and with its certain features we meet over and over again no matter what location or time is. We speak of him as of a universal archetype. In this article we refer to the image of proto-blacksmith, demiurge, god of Akkadian-Sumerian mythology Enki. Like the rest of archetype blacksmiths till recently, he is thought of as the Lord of the element (here it is still water and not the fire), protector of crafts, town-builder (the one who "erects"). He has the gift of magic curing and ritual absolution of gods and people from sins. He is tightly connected with the time of Golden Age and its destruction. Separately his feud with woman is spoken of. All these features are typical for other gods-blacksmiths too (or mythical figures). In this article the analysis of these features of the archetype is given in the context of Jungian psychology.
