Jung's Struggle with Freud
A Metabiological Study
As Hogenson writes in chapter 1: "Jung's memory of the ocean passage (from Jung's memoirs recording a voyage to America with Freud) focuses our attention on the central problem of this essay: What does it mean to lay claim to personal authority in a world where biography and autobiography have become thematic for an entire cultural discourse? How are we to comprehend authority in psychoanalysis?" So begins his exploration into the relationship between Carl Gustav Jung and Sigmund Freud, a broken friendship that profoundly affected twentieth-century thought.
