Watch: Carl Jung – The Wisdom of The Dream

 

A three-part series of films produced by PBS, on the life and works of the great thinker and psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. Part one provides an overview of the major contributions made by Jung in his long career. Born on July 26, 1875, in Switzerland, Jung became interested in psychiatry during his medical studies.

He saw that the minds of mentally deranged persons had similar contents, much of which he recognized from his own interior life, described in his autobiography “Memories, Dreams, Reflections.” His lifelong quest to understand the workings of the psyche led him to develop the analytical method of psychiatry.

He proceeded by looking at the role in his patients’ lives of what he termed the personal and collective unconscious, as expressed through dreams, myths, and outer events. With film clips, photographs, and interviews with some of his colleagues, as well as with Jung himself, the story of one of the most important figures of the 20th century is told.
