Dream Symbols of the Individuation Process: Notes of C. G. Jung's Seminars on Wolfgang Pauli's Dreams by Suzanne Gieser
Specificity of Jungian psychology is its research of the relation between matter and Psyche. Without Jung’s relation and exchange with physicist Wolfgang Pauli his synchronicity theory might not occur or would not be elaborated well enough. It is not exaggerating to quote that Jungian psychology is far from being Jung’s only but is formed by his fruitful relation with clients and friends. In order to understand analytical psychology it is inevitable to make the research of the groups, institutions or individuals that supported Jung to present his theories. It is not the ideas only that are important to grasp but the way of their spreading will also give us insight on their nature. The seminar of Susanne Gieser covers presenting and promoting Jung’s ideas in USA, his relation with Wolfgang Pauli and partially Pauli’s individuation process. The seminar is concise, inspiring and based on elaborated scientific research. It gives row insight in creative process of Jung and Pauli that preceded theories as well as intellectual and social movements that resonated with Jung’s teachings. Sussanne Gieser gives us human and personal answers on creative relations encouraging us to enjoy them in our own lives and practice.
