Jung and India

Nancy Cater, J.D., Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief

Al Collins, Ph.D., and Elaine Molchanov, LCSW, Guest Editors

Carl Jung's interest in India, and specifically in Hinduism and Buddhism, will be obvious to anyone who has even superficially read his work. Nevertheless, its significance is often ignored or minimized. This issue of Spring aims to show just how extensive and fraught Jung's ties to India were and to present attempts from a number of directions to plumb the meaning of the relationship and, in the spirit of active imagination, to "dream it onward" into the present and future.

Jung in India

Jung in India

By Sulagna Sengupta

Based on archival research, Jung in India is an account of Carl Jung's relationship with India spanning several decades of the twentieth century. Jung's India comes alive through the nuances of his journey there in 1937-38 and the encounters he had with India through readings, acquaintances, and correspondence. Chronicling that eventful history, the narrative brings to the surface previously unpublished information about Jung and draws on his psychological notions and religious worldview to reveal how India and Jung influenced each other in the long course of their association.

Dreaming the Myth Onwards

Dreaming the Myth Onwards
C.G. Jung on Christianity and on Hegel

By Wolfgang Giegerich

The fundamental importance of Christianity for Jung is well documented in his writings and letters. For the whole of his long career the great psychologist had wrestled with what he called "…the great snake of the centuries, the burden of the human mind, the problem of Christianity." By comparison, his statements about Hegel are quite scarce. Both topics, nevertheless, have in common that they elicited from Jung radical accusations, accusations not presented in the calm tone of a psychological scholar, but fired by a deep-seated personal affect that propelled Jung to wish "to dream the myth onwards," that is, to move to a new, his own improved and corrected version of Christianity.
