Abstract:

The discovery of a cache of documents in a Swiss basement prompted psychologist Kerr to reexamine the relationship between Freud and Jung at the beginnings of the practice of psychoanalysis. Sabina Spielrein, a young Jewish woman, came to Jung for counseling and then became his student, colleague and lover. When Jung broke off the relationship from fear of scandal, she turned to Freud and unwittingly revealed to him some of Jung's private thoughts about him and the new science, leading to confrontations, recriminations, and ultimately the well-known break between the two founders.
