THE 8-POINTED STAR (OCTAGRAM) SYMBOLOGY FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF KARL GUSTAV JUNG

Zahra Shabani, Fataneh Mahmoudi, Gholamreza Hassani

Abstract


Abstract. Certainly, the vast use of Islamic symbols, as well as changes in it by non-Islamic countries, has
transformed these symbols and designs. Many of our old actions and norms are modeled by the West, and have been re-introduced to our communities with the name of their cultural records. An example of the most widely used symbols is star, which has been used in different periods in architecture and in visual arts. This symbolic formulation combines the rotation of a square around itself or in some nations with a number of geometric shapes that can be explored, as well as symbolically broad implications. Identification of the origin of this symbol and its rooting has been carried out based on theological and archaic views of Karl Gustav Yung, a Swiss psychologist. His works have had a great deal of influence on the ideas and thoughts of many scholars and researchers, and his insights into the characteristics of human
personality and the status of symbols in human psychological actions have been fixed in psychology.
This article reviews The 8-Pointed STAR semiology, based on the symbolic and Archetypal theory of Karl
Gustave Jung.
Keywords: Semiology, the 8-Pointed star, Karl G. Jung.
