The Asheville Jung Center – A Global Jungian Community
Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), also known as C. G. Jung, is the founder of analytical (“Jungian”) psychology.  He is credited for advancing such concepts as the Shadow, Archetypes, Collective Unconscious, Personality Types and Individuation.   Born on July 26, 1875 to Johann Paul Jung, a Swiss Reformed pastor, and his wife, Emilie, née Preiswerk, in the Swiss village of Kesswil, CG Jung received a classical European education in German speaking Swiss schools. He studied medicine at the University of Basel from 1896 to 1900. Deeply interested in philosophy and religion as well as science, Carl Jung read Kant, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche among others while a student. These philosophers formed the basis of Jung’s thinking and fundamentally influenced him throughout his life. In 1900 C. G. Jung entered a psychiatric residency at the Bürgholzli Klinik in Zürich and studied and worked there under Prof. Eugen Bleuler. In psychiatry, not only Bleuler but also Charcot, Janet, and Flournoy were Jung’s major reference points. Carl Jung’s early publications included a book on schizophrenia and a series of research papers using the Word Association Experiment. In 1903 Carl Jung married Emma Rauschenbach and eventually became the father of five children, four daughters and a son.
