Posted on YouTube on June 21, 2012 ‘Face to Face’ interviews Carl Gustav Jung, October 22, BBC 1959. In English, subtitles in Castilian.
Interview by John Freeman with Carl Jung in 1959. The founder of analytical psychology talks about his childhood, his ideas on death and God, about life after death and some aspects of his theory. (For English viewers, skip the few first minutes as it contains a curious introduction in Spanish. The actual interview follows swiftly).
Fascinating document that gives us the opportunity to 0bserve the excitement in the words and expression of Jung talking about his passion. Interesting to note the importance that he gives to imagination as a powerful form of energy in a similar way in which we understand it in the field of hypnosis. Likewise with the subconscious and with intuition, considered determining factors in our behavior and development, also very important tools in hypnotherapy. Fascinating to recognize how our understanding of the human mind has increased over the last 50 years, and how our perceptions of specific topics such as sexuality, or the treatment of gender, have evolved during this half century.
“The world hangs on a thread. And that is the psyche of man” Carl G. Jung (47 ‘)
Please note that, as our reader “lewislafontaine” explains below (comments section), Jung himself stopped using hypnosis in his work:
