A Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who discovered analytical psychology Carl Gustav Jung was born on July 26, 1975. He developed the notions of extraversion and introversion, and the collective unconscious. Jung?s work was highly influential in psychiatry and religion, philosophy, anthropology, literature and philosophy. He wrote a great many works that were published after he died. Jung advanced the theory that individuation is the dominant process of human growth. His psychological concepts included the archetype, the complex, synchronicity and collective unconscious. A psychometric instrument that is used in psychology was developed from Jung?s theories. He developed dream analysis and symbolization. He was a practicing clinician but spend much of his life exploring Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, sociology as well as astrology. He was highly interested in the occult which lead his client to view him as a mystic. His popular psychology is influential on the New Age movement. Jung married Emma Rauschenbach in 1903 and they had five children. The marriage lasted until Emma died in 1955 but during the marriage Jung carried on with other women. He sent his Studies in Word Association to Sigmund Freud in 1906 and the two men met in 1907. They talked for 13 hours and six months later Freud sent Jung a collection of his latest essays. They had an intense correspondence and collaboration that lasted more than six years. Jung did not feel that the importance of sexual development was essential and focused on the unconscious that contains memories and ideas. He did not believe that libido was responsible for the formation of man?s personality and this caused a fall-out with Freud. Jung induced hallucinations and wrote down his perceptions in a Red Book. This book was kept in a bank vault for many years until Jung? grandson decided to have it published. After publication the book was vilified as an oddity, synched with mystical reality. Jung published books until he died on Jun3 6, 1961. He printed Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies in 1959.This book analyzed the meaning and possible psychological significance of UFOs.
