Abstract: 'I want to offer the reader a psychoanalytic explanation of synchronicity, an explanation to which he can turn as an alternative to the Jungian view. I say "explanation" and "alternative" becayse synchronistic occurrences as Jung intends them are neither provable nor disprovable in the hard, rigorous sense we traditionally associate with the natural sciences, and with mathematics....It will suffice to say that Jung's notion of synchronicity (and this applies to his followers) is associated inextricably with his notion of archetypes, those elusive, quasi-instinctual entities which Jung employs to explain just about everything that has to do with the dynamics of human psychology.
