The daimon captures the irresistible attraction and danger of the unconscious. When the daimon calls, we are faced with a choice: to work with it or to refuse its call. Either way, the decision is ours, and so is our responsibility for whatever ensues. In this paper, I discuss the moral dimensions of a daimonic encounter and the implications it has for conscious behaviour. In particular, I contend that the paradoxical qualities of the daimon, and its profound effects on our existence, support the moral imperative of honest psychological work.
