Overall I think the article is good although I think it could be fleshed out more, and that last section with the diagram needs references. I'm aware that James Hillman has written about the daimon and the daimonic, although I haven't yet read his work. Is there anyone who has who can add to the article?
I do not support the article merging. I think this is a big enough topic to necessitate having its own article. It can be linked to the demon/demonic articles, but should not be merged since they are different topics. --126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:13, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
I agree, specifically in that a daimonion is a spiritual force, not a Judeo-Christian "demon" of sorts. To elaborate, a daimonion can be a source of inspiration, as it was to Socrates throughout his life. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:56, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
I agree with the previous posters. These are VERY different topics. Speaking from a psychological perspective, Rollo May has consistently used the term daimonic as a concept designed to rival those of "devil" and "demonic". As May says, the term devil "is unsatisfactory because it projects the power outside the self and opens the way for all kinds of psychological projection." See the book "Meeting the Shadow" for further explication. --1000Faces (talk) 00:01, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
That this article would exist is more fitting in a dictionary than an encyclopedia. Since there is already an entry on Dæmon (which references this article's title when explaining the Greek etymology of the Latin spelling "dæmon"), I propose that those parts of the article which refer to Greek mythology be merged into the Dæmon article, while the other meanings can be moved to their appropriate pre-existing pages, merged into other pages where appropriate, or given their own subject pages (for example "Daimonic (psychology)"). If it turns out that there are a number of uses of the term "Daimonic" which warrant separate pages, then this article itself should be converted into a disambiguation page. --Kalle Clemens (talk) 17:05, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
