But are the archetypes real?

Check out my new post at Dreaming the Myth Forward: “But are the archetypes real?”  This is a question that haunts any discussion of the archetypes, especially discussions of the gods as archetypes.  I have made the argument here and here that the polytheistic experience of deities can be explained in Jungian terms as archetypes.  But the question of the ontological nature of the archetypes remained unanswered.  In this post, I try to answer it.
