About the Author
Jung studied medicine at Basel, and worked at the Burgholzli mental health clinic in Zurich (1900-1909). He met Freud in 1907, and became his leading collaborator. He became critical of Freud's approach in 1913, which caused a break between them.

Born in 1875, C. G. Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and innovative thinker whose most influential ideas include the concept of psychological archetypes, the collective unconscious, and synchronicity. He is the author of numerous works, including Memories, Dreams, Reflections and Man and His Symbols. He died in 1961.

Fordham was an international figure in the history of analysis.
