Example text

Jung had found the primordial images amongst the psychotic patients and he here expanded them to a basis for normal life. He noted how like these were to the experience of mystics and the records of strange and sometimes heretical texts. He had plunged into the study of myths, legends and religious practices. The writings of Miss Miller had proved a focal point round which all his knowledge could gel. The result: a gigantic work using his version of psychoanalysis—offensive to Freud—as a means of interpretation.

That seems to demean the feminine component in Schreber and his feminine identifications. Such thinking stands in the way of valuing adequately the anima and the inner world which is recognized but its significance passed over. Freud’s ‘Attempt at an interpretation’ centres first on the father, and indeed Schreber’s own father was a very considerable personality—a famous physician who developed a practice of education sometimes employing mechanical instruments to ensure good bodily posture. These practices would seem to have been both stupid and cruel, but Freud does not seem to have known of them.

The Psychology of the Unconscious, introducing modifications of psychoanalysis, was written with an emotional drive which made it more difficult to read but more moving than its revision, into which he had injected all his theorizing. References are now made to archetypes, the collective unconscious, the anima, the animus, the wise old man and the self. In this way the book was made more tidy. None the less, the frame of the book remained essentially the same, and I shall be using the revised version, published in the Collected Works, as a basis for my remarks.
