#97 – The Freud/Jung Letters


My long-time friend, Dr. Douglas A. Davis, recently retired from full-time teaching at Haverford College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania where he was professor of psychology and for many years department chair. Long time listeners will remember Dr. Davis from Shrink Rap Radio #15 on Islamic Psychology and #42 on Happy Birthday, Dr. Freud. Among his many interests, Doug is a Freud scholar and he’s also one of the most interesting conversationalists it’s ever been my pleasure to know. In this interview, we discuss a book chapter that Doug wrote about the correspondence between Freud and Jung.

    This was a classic shrinkrap. One to listen to again. So many gems per sentence. No objection here on having Dr. Davis on the show again. Also no objection on having shows on Freud and Jung again.
    By the way. I have penned a couple of thoughts in my blog as usual: http://anneisaman.blogspot.com/2007/06/shrinkrapradio-on-freud-and-jung.html

    Synchronicity strikes again, by way of an almost simultaneously released podcast from the radio program “Ideas”, probably the best of the the CBC’s (Canadian Broadcasting Corp) podcast offerings. The June 24th “Ideas” podcast is available at http://www.cbc.ca/ideas/podcast.html where it is described thusly:

    How to Read Freud and Jung

    Two giants of twentieth century psychology, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, mapped the unconscious in ways that still resonate today. IDEAS host Paul Kennedy interviews Josh Cohen and David Tacey, authors of books on Freud and Jung, respectively, in Granta Books’ How to Read guides to influential thinkers.

    Out standing show, that joke about the sweed choosing the door where they talk about paradise as opposed to actually going gave me a nice belly laugh, good thing I was walking late at night when no one could hear me or the guys in the white coats might have rounded me up.
