Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Habitat

Carl Gustav JungImage via Wikipedia
Habitat: noun - natural environment occupied by a particular organism; area distinguished by the organisms occupying it; such areas collectively; dwelling place, usual surroundings, habitation.

‘Many of the world’s rarest creatures are facing extinction due to the disappearance of their habitat, often due to the encroachment of man and his activity.’

6 June 1961 – Carl Jung died
Carl Gustav Jung (26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961), Swiss psychiatrist and founder of Analytical Psychology, is thought by some to be the first modern psychologist to state that the human psyche is, by nature, religious. He’s also one of the best known pioneers of dream analysis. He considered himself a natural scientist, not a theoretical psychologist, like Freud. Jung used deep observation followed by categorization instead of the opposite process of imagining what categories might exist and then looking for proof of these and deciding which was always correct. He was a practicing clinician, but involved himself in philosophy, sociology, astrology, literature, the arts and even alchemy.
