“I will raise no objection any more against the title THE FORGOTTEN SELF. I see that it may strike the American mind.”

Carl Gustav Jung, 1875-1961.  Swiss psychiatrist; founder of Analytical Psychology.  Typed Letter Signed, C. G. Jung, ” x 5¾”, one page, with holograph emendations, on personal stationery, Küsnacht-Zürich, [Switzerland], October 4, 1957.

Jung, a prolific author, writes to Peter Davison of The Atlantic Monthly Press, relenting on the title to a work.  In full he writes, “thank you very much for your persuasive letter.  I appreciate your argument and I will raise no objection any more against the title THE FORGOTTEN SELF. I see that it may strike the American mind.”

Jung was one of the most influential psychiatrists of the 20th Century.  He pioneered many psychological concepts, including the Archetype, the Collective Unconscious, and the Complex, and he is considered to be the first modern analyst to hold that the human psyche is “by nature religious” and to explore it in depth.  His collected writings comprise 19 volumes.  His best known works are Psychology of the Unconscious (1912) and Psychological Types (1921). 

Jung has added the word “more” by hand and has signed the letter with a bold, blue fountain pen signature.  The letter has one vertical mailing fold, not touching the signature, and staple holes in a blank area at the upper left.  Overall the letter is in fine to very fine condition.

Unframed.
