Freud vs Jung

4 Extra Debut. Lisa Appignanesi explores the intense relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, pioneers of psychoanalysis. From January 2012.

Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung's names may be linked in the public imagination but the two men were friends and collaborators for only a few short years. In 1912 they had a final, catastrophic split and never worked together again. Lisa Appignanesi tells the story of the titanic struggle which shaped our map of the unconscious. Did the bisected science fail to fulfil its promise and how much can be laid at the door of the primal argument between its dominant father and rebellious son?
