IN AUTUMN 1935 THE SWISS psychologist C. G. Jung was invited to deliver five lectures on his psychological system by the Institute of Medical Psychology (known as the Tavistock Clinic) in London. His critical audience of some two hundred doctors, including Great Britain's most eminent psychiatrists, contained few who could be called orthodox Jungians. A stenographic transcript was made of the Lectures and discussions; and this record, with Jung's approval, was privately circulated in mimeographed form. Though never published, the Lectures have been widely influential among Jung's followers under the title "Fundamental Psychological Conceptions," and they are now given to the public for the first time.
These Lectures offer a notably succinct and lucid introduction to Jungian psychology. Though addressing a professional audience Jung employs an informal manner, and it is easy to see that his unusual material and surprising fluency in colloquial English won the close interest of his hearers. Though extemporaneous, the Lectures are well organized, but it is in the spontaneous exchange of the discussion periods that Jung comes through most vividly. Describing the structure and contents of the mind, he explains the attitude types, the four functions, the ego, the collective unconscious, and the archetypes. As methods of investigating the unconscious, he expounds the word-association test (which he invented), dream analysis, and active imagination, and in the final lecture, he explores the problem of the transference. Jung continually gives examples of dreams and other case material from his wide experience, some not published elsewhere in his writings.
E. A. Bennet, the distinguished British psychiatrist, and interpreter of Jung, recalls in a foreword the impact of the Lectures as he heard them over thirty years ago.
