Length: 57 minutes

“If our western civilization has a possibility of survival, it would be by accepting the alchemical myth which is a continuation and a richer completion of the Christian myth.” 

One of the most profound writers to follow Jung in the field of Analytical Psychology, Marie-Louise von Franz was born in Munich in 1915 and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Zurich. She began analysis with Jung at eighteen, and worked with him on research until his death in 1961. Her first major publication, Aurora Consurgens, is the companion volume to Jung’s last major work, Mysterium Coniunctionis. Among her other publications are C. G. Jung, His Myth in Our Time and On Dreams and Death. Here, she describes her first impressions on meeting Jung — their research into alchemy, the nature of projection, the importance of insight and reflection in resolving personal conflicts, and the self-destructive course of modern civilization. Dr. von Franz died in February, 1998. 

This conversation with Suzanne Wagner, Ph.D., a Jungian analyst practicing in Sausalito, California, was filmed in1977 at von Franz’s tower retreat in Bollingen, Switzerland.
