Jungian analyst Helen Phillips presents us with an understanding of envy from a powerful perspective, diving deep into the creative as well as destructive possibilities of envy. Drawing on a Jungian conceptualisation of the development of consciousness toward individuation, we encounter the constellation of a new archetype, coined by Brazilian psychoanalyst Carlos Byington. This Alterity Archetype seeks to open a dialogue between consciousness and the Shadow, both our own Shadow and the Shadow as experienced in others. Helen asks us to consider the ways in which envy, once relegated to the Shadow, can inform what lies at the heart of our unlived Self.
