The long awaited publication of the correspondence between C.G. Jung and Erich Neumann promises to be a landmark event in the history of analytical psychology. The Jung-Neumann Letters, edited by Martin Liebscher, is due to be published by Princeton University Press spring 2015. To mark this important event, an international conference will be held, jointly sponsored by The Foundation for the Works of C.G. Jung, the Neumann Estate, The Philemon Foundation, The International Association of Analytical Psychology, and The Israel Institute of Jungian Psychology.
This collection of more than one hundred letters between the two men spans nearly three decades, from 1934 on the eve of Neumann’s arrival in Tel Aviv until his premature death in 1960. The letters reveal an intense and intimate encounter between two brilliant minds. Respectfully, yet in a most straightforward way, Jung — the founder, pioneer and wise elder — and Neumann — the courageous and bold younger thinker — reflect upon a broad spectrum of theoretical, clinical and cultural issues, including Jewish and Biblical themes, as well as anti-Semitism and Nazism.
