Logo of Psikohumaniora

The Psikohumaniora logo* is derived from the psychological symbol "Ψ" as known as a trident or "trishul" (in Sanskrit), which is the 23rd Greek alphabet called "psi". The symbol is then duplicated and rotated 5 (five) times to make a 6 (six). The numbers 5 and 6 are important numbers in Islam, and they constitute the main core of science in UIN Walisongo where Psikohumaniora is part of it. The numbers 5 and 6 symbolize Rukun Islam (the five pillars of Islam), and Rukun Imam (the six pillars of faith).

Trident is a prominent psychological symbol; its three prongs carry multiple interpretations:

  1. Three elements of the human psyche in Freudian psychoanalysis: id, ego, and superego (Lapsley & Stey, 2012).
  2. Trilogy of the concept of belief in Islam: Islam, Iman, and Ihsan (Safri, 2011).
  3. Three stages of the process of purifying the human soul (tazkiyat al-nafs) in Sufism: takhalli, tahalli, and tajalli (Ismail, 2012; Syukur, 2014).
