Carl Gustav Jung

CARL GUSTAV JUNG (26/07/1875–06/06/1961), often referred to as C. G. Jung, was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist, who founded ANALYTICAL PSYCHOLOGY.  Jung proposed and developed the concept of EXTRAVERSION and INTROVERSION, archetypes and the collective unconscious.  His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, philosophy, archaeology, anthropology, literature and related fields.  He was a prolific writer, many of whose works were not published until after his death.
Jung created some of the best known psychological concepts, the (MBT) Myers-Briggs Type.  INDICATOR, a popular psychometric instrument, has been developed from Jung’s Theory of psychological types.  He is, also, one of the best known contemporary  ———-contributors to DREAM ANALYSIS & SYMBOLIZATION. —-Jung met Sigmund Freud, in Vienna, in 1960.  He and Freud influenced each other during the intellectually formative years of Jung’s life.  Freud called Jung his ADOPTED ELDEST SON, his CROWN PRINCE & SUCCESSOR.
It was the publication of Jung’s book —–PSYCHOLOGY OF THE UNCONSCIOUS —– in 1912, that led to the break with Freud.  Letters, they exchanged, show Freud’s refusal to consider Jung’s ideas,  This rejection caused, what Jung described, in his autobiography —– MEMORIES, DREAMS, REFLECTIONS —– as a ‘resounding censure’.  Everyone, he knew, dropped away, except for two of his colleagues.  The book was later revised and retitled, ————SYMBOLS OF TRANSFORMATION —- in 1922. 
Jung continued to publish books, until the end of his life, including FLYING SAUCERS : A Modern Myth of things seen in the skies (1959), which analysed the archetypal meaning and possible psychological significance of the reported observation of UFOs.  He, also, enjoyed a friendship with an English Roman Catholic Priest ——Father Victor White —- who corresponded with Jung, after he had published his controversial ANSWER TO JOB.  He died on the 6th of June, 1961, at Kusnacht, after a short illness.
Carl Jung’s Quotes : 
(1) A SCREAM —- is just that — a noise and not music. 
(2) In all CHAOS, there is a COSMOS; in all DISORDER, a SECRET ORDER. 
(3) Often the hands will solve a mystery, that the intellect has struggled with in vain. 
(4) The pendulum of the mind, alternates between —- SENSE & NONSENSE, not between —- RIGHT & WRONG. 
(5) Your vision will become clear, only when you can look INTO YOUR OWN HEART. Who looks OUTSIDE —- DREAMS; who looks INSIDE —- AWAKES.
