By C. G. Jung, Erich Neumann, Martin Liebscher, Heather McCartney

C. G. Jung and Erich Neumann first met in 1933, at a seminar Jung used to be engaging in in Berlin. Jung was once fifty-seven years outdated and across the world acclaimed for his personal model of psychotherapy. Neumann, twenty-eight, had simply comprehensive his stories in drugs. the 2 males struck up a correspondence that may proceed till Neumann’s loss of life in 1960. A lifelong Zionist, Neumann fled Nazi Germany along with his relations and settled in Palestine in 1934, the place he could turn into the founder of analytical psychology sooner or later country of Israel.

Presented right here in English for the 1st time are letters that offer an extraordinary examine the improvement of Jung’s mental theories from the Thirties onward in addition to the rising self-confidence of one other towering twentieth-century highbrow who used to be frequently defined as Jung’s such a lot gifted pupil. Neumann was once one of many few correspondence companions of Jung’s who was once in a position to problem him intellectually and in my view. those letters make clear not just Jung’s political angle towards Nazi Germany, his alleged anti-Semitism, and his mental idea of fascism, but in addition his knowing of Jewish psychology and mysticism. They verify Neumann’s value as a number one psychologist of his time and paint a desirable photograph of the mental influence of immigration at the German Jewish intellectuals who settled in Palestine and helped to create the kingdom of Israel.

Featuring Martin Liebscher’s authoritative creation and annotations, this quantity records probably the most vital highbrow relationships within the historical past of analytical psychology.
