Psychology and Alchemy by C. G. Jung

Psychology and Alchemy by C. G. Jung (Collected Works of C.G. Jung Vol.12)

Carl Gustav Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist who co-founded analytical psychology.

In his early career, he was best known for his collaboration with Sigmund Freud. Over time their differences in methodology and theory became irreconcilable, dividing psychology into two major camps: Freudian psychoanalysis and subsequent schools of psychotherapy, which adhere to Freud’s theories; and object relations theory, self-psychology, archetypal psychology, cognitive analytic therapy and neuropsychology, which together comprise modern day analytical psychology.

In 1912, he began what became an extensive collaboration with Freud that lasted six years until 1914 when they parted ways for good over fundamental differences in theory.
