Key Facts & Information
- Carl Gustav Jung was born on 26 July 1875 in Kesswil, Switzerland.
- As Jung was the only son of a Protestant Clergyman, Paul Jung, he grew up as a quiet, observant child.
- Jung was often alone, carrying his single-child status.
- Since Jung was often alone, his time of isolation enabled him to observe how adults around him behaved, which helped shape his later career and work.
- Jung’s parents became more and more complex as he grew up. Paul, his father, gradually lost his faith regarding the power of religion as he grew older.
- Emilie, Jung’s mother, suffered from mental illness. Jung was only three when Emilie left the family to live temporarily in a psychiatric hospital.
- Jung was expected to be a Clergyman, too, as his father and many other male relatives were. However, Jung began reading philosophy in his teens. As a result, he chose a path away from his family’s tradition. Jung then attended the University of Basel.
- At the University of Basel, Jung was exposed to several fields of study, such as biology, paleontology, religion, and archaeology.
- Finally, Jung chose to study medicine. Jung graduated from the University of Basel in 1900.
- Two years later, Jung obtained his M.D. from the University of Zurich.
- Jung worked on the staff at Burgholzli Asylum while attending the University of Zurich.
- Under Eugen Bleuler, another prominent psychiatrist, Jung worked as a research scientist at the renowned Burghölzli hospital, a psychiatric hospital located in the University of Zurich. During this time, Carl Jung corresponded with Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis.
- He worked in the Asylum under the guidance of Eugen Bleuler, who was at that time a pioneering psychologist who studied and formed the groundwork for what is now considered to be the classical studies of mental illness.
- Jung observed regularly as he worked at the asylum. He specifically noticed how different words resulted in different emotional responses from his patients.
- Because of such responses, Jung believed that these represented subconscious associations around immoral or sexual content.
- Jung derived the term “complex” to describe the conditions he observed.
CORRESPONDENCE WITH SIGMUND FREUD
- Since Jung’s work dealt with the subconscious human mind, he was often related to Sigmund Freud’s ideas.
- Later on, they formed a correspondence for over five years, beginning in 1907.
- It was widely believed that Jung continued the later work of Freud.
- Different viewpoints and personal problems had ended their collaboration, and eventually, their friendship.
- Jung challenged Freud’s beliefs about sexuality as the foundation of neurosis.
- Jung also disagreed with Freud’s methods, asserting that the elder psychologist’s work was too one-sided.
- Jung took a more advanced approach towards a number of Freud’s theories as he published the Psychology of the Unconscious in 1912, a book that examined the unconscious mind and tried to understand the symbolic meaning of its contents.
FOUNDING ANALYTICAL PSYCHOLOGY
- Jung adopted the term “analytical psychology” in order to distinguish his work from Freud’s.
- In his 1921 work Psychological Types, one of Jung’s important ideas was explained, and it was the conception of introverts and extroverts and the notion that people can be categorized as one of the two, depending on how they show particular functions of consciousness.
- In 1932, Jung was awarded Zurich’s literature prize.
- Six years later, in 1938, he was elected honorary fellow of England’s Royal Society of Medicine.
- In 1944, Jung was named an honorary member of the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences.
- At his home in Zurich, Carl Jung died on June 6, 1961.
