Jung Family Makes Biographer’s Life Hell

From the Herald Trib:

The family’s list of disputed facts spans almost 12 pages, from the red sail of a boat to the architectural style of a bridge over the Rhine. More substantively, some of Jung’s relatives question the reliability of patient diaries that hint at sexual liaisons with Jung. They also scoff at a description of Jung’s wife, Emma, that says her children “believed that she had warm feelings, but never showed them.” But most of all they resent Bair for not seeking their approval for statements they made during interviews with her.

The bio excites me. But I want to read Memories, Dreams, Reflections first.

  1. Jung was a badass!

    He influenced dozens of fields outside of psychoanalysis- like art, medicine, literature- with his work, and i think his dream/romantic love/symbol stuff is really cool.

    also, i have a psychology fetish.
