The Method of Introspective Analysis
Founded on the rigorous theory developped by Diel, the introspective method allows each of us an objective discovery of his own psychism, thanks to an analysis guided by the knowledge of laws governing escapes and false justifications.
The analytical method therefore consists in little by little becoming acquainted with escapes and false justifications, detectable through their stereotyped manifestations. To the latter, it objects counter-valorizations, thoughts opposed to the natural inclination of vanity and its metamorphosis. The subject is thereore invited to harmonize his desires according to the demand of his individual impulse of surpassment. The psychic energy, once spread across inner conflicts, may then be positively invested into the necessities of daily life, therefore releasing the subject from thre burden of his torments and leading him towards a better deployment of his capacities.
- A psychology of depths, it aims at cleaning up psychism. The role of the analyst is hence to guide the subject along his own introspective research. Beyond the analysis of thoughts, feelings and actions, the method allows to translate into conceptual language the symbolic content of dreams.
- A psychology of the present, it liberates the subject from the effect of passed traumas thanks to an introspective work which does not emphasize on the retrospective recollection of events.
- A psychology of responsibility, it is based on the idea that man is always responsible of his reactions in response to what happens to him.
An analytical and therapeutic method, it opens up on the ethical dimension of existence, the meaning of life being defined as the search of harmony (deep understanding) between the different levels of satisfaction (material, sexual and spiritual). Its basis is biological, for the quest of satisfaction has been the driving force of evolution for millenaries. The inner well-being is therefore morally established and the method allows oneself to progressively relieve from the internal conflict between moralism and amoralism, exalted spriritualism and excessive materialism,. It replaces the human being at the center of his limitation and of the mystery of life.
Through the generality of its approach, it concerns all kinds of deviations of thought, feelings, and acts.
The translation of dreams
A continuation of the diurnal deliberation, our dreams express the conflict between subconscious desires, repressed as long as they are irrealizable or insane, and the call of the impulse to surpass oneself (the superconscious). The dream appears like a language to decipher. The method of translation of dreams developed by Diel consist in tranposing in clear language the psychological content of dream symbols. These universal symbols appear in myths of every culture and are found again in dreams of all human beings. The greek myths translated by Diel are the expression, alike every myth, of the hero’s fight against monsters, symbols of his perverse temptations. He is helped in this fight by divinities, symbols of his own superconscious strengths.
