Does an archetype of justice exist? If so, what is its image in the mythologies of different cultures? How this archetype contributed to the development of religious and philosophical visions that are at the basis of human rights? Can C.G. Jung’s theory of psychological types shed a light on the tension existing between law and justice? Does justice have a healing power? The author proposes elements of response to those questions to demonstrate the importance of combining legal action with a Jungian psychotherapeutic approach in the treatment of victims of human rights violations. The article presents the progressive convergence between human rights law and psychology, as well as the similarities between the work of those operating in the field of human rights and in the analytical practice.
