- This paper discusses the non-frontal conflict of the central character Pak Mantri Pasar (PMP) in the novel Pasar with the Javanese Psychological analysis approach. This psychology is the result of constructing the concept of local psychology in the context of Javanese culture. Javanese psychology, as an indigenous psychology, offers concepts that are not widely known and are expected to make a meaningful contribution to universal psychological knowledge. The central character of PMP who lives in a market environment and even gets the name PMP is able to become a human without characteristics, a fourth dimensional human being who frees his own right ‘notions. The results of the psychological analysis referring to the concept of Javanese Psychology (rasa, “aku”, mawas diri) are summarized as follows. In the rasa element, PMP is able to achieve true feelings, a sense of peace, a sense of freedom, and a sense of eternity. In the “aku” element, PMP is able to free itself from unlimited desires. In the mawas diri (introspection) element, PMP examines itself, understands and is aware of itself, is able to perform self-transformation, transforms itself from good to better.
