CARL GUSTAV JUNG
PSYCHOLOGIST,PSYCHIATRIST, INVENTOR, JOURNALIST (1875–1961)
Carl Jung established analytical psychology. He advanced the idea of introvert and extrovert personalities and the power of the unconscious.
He is best known for his studies on the human psyche, dream analysis, collective unconscious and archetypes.
Carl Jung was born on July 26, 1875, in Kesswil, Switzerland. Jung believed in the “complex” or emotionally charged associations. He collaborated with Sigmund Freud, but disagreed with him about the sexual basis of neuroses. Jung founded analytical psychology, advancing the idea of introvert and extrovert personalities, archetypes and the power of the unconscious. He published numerous works during his lifetime, and his ideas have had reverberations going beyond the field of psychiatry, extending into art, literature and religion as well. He died in 1961.
Jung’s childhood was influenced by the complexities of his parents. His father, Paul, developed a failing belief in the power of religion as he grew older. Jung’s mother, Emilie, was haunted by mental illness and, when her boy was just three, left the family to live temporarily in a psychiatric hospital.
Jung graduated from the University of Basel in 1900 and received his M.D. degree two years later from the University of Zurich.
In his early career, Jung observed how different words elicited emotional responses from patients, which he believed represented subconscious associations around immoral or sexual content. These observations led the way for Jung to develop the term “complex” to describe the conditions.
Jung’s growing reputation as a psychologist and his work dealing with the subconscious eventually led him to the ideas of Sigmund Freud and, later, to the man himself.
Jung published Psychology of the Unconscious on 1912. In this work, Jung examined the unconscious mind and tried to understand the symbolic meaning of its contents. In the process, the work also took head-on a number of Freud’s theories.
During 1914’s, he also allowed himself to explore his own mind, eventually proposing the idea that there was not only a personal unconscious but also a collective unconscious from which certain universal symbols and patterns have arisen throughout history. At the heart of analytical psychology is the interplay of these with the ego, a process he labeled individuation, by which a person develops into his or her own “true self.”
Jung’s ideas continue to resonate today, in fields as varied as archaeology, religion, literature and even pop culture.
Jung married Emma Rauschenbach in 1903. The couple had five children and remained together until Emma’s death in 1955.
