|C. G. Jung|
Jung and Binswanger
Inner Circle Seminar No. 110
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
100 years ago the Swiss psychiatrists Carl Gustav Jung and Ludwig Binswanger visited Sigmund Freud in his home at Vienna, Berggasse 19. Jung later reported that Freud had apologised to him for having nothing at home but ‘an elderly wife’. In fact, Freud’s wife’s sister, Minna Bernays, also lived with the Freuds. Jung said she had confided in him that she and Freud had a sexual relationship. Jung became Freud’s ‘son’ and ‘crown prince’, the ‘Aryan’ front-man Freud wanted for his ‘Jewish science’ of ‘psychoanalysis’. But Jung rebelled, and founded his own school of ‘analytical psychology’. Binswanger, no less independent, founded ‘existential analysis’. But he told Freud that he wrote his severe criticisms ‘with love’. He and Freud remained friends despite radical disagreement.
What was going on between these three men? What are the points of convergence and divergence, in theory and practice, between the three schools of psychotherapy they founded?
