C. G. Jung: the Man and His Work, Then and Now.
Alexander, Irving E.
This paper discusses the life of Carl Jung, analyzing the relationship to his work of selected events in his life. Biographical elements of Jung's life such as his family and childhood experiences are described, and specific incidents that Jung reported to have had a great impact on his emotional health are highlighted. Jung's professional development is described, with special attention to the early word association studies, the study of psychotic imagery, the postulation of universal realms of unconscious processes, his elaboration of a descriptive language for the study of personality, and finally his search for the universal structure or form of mental life, its unfolding and its goal. Emphasis is placed on the period between 1909 and 1922 which includes the break in his relationship with Freud, and its consequences. Jung's publications and his impact on psychology and in the larger world are discussed. (LLL)
