Sigmund Freud

This visit played a particular role in the growing estrangement between Freud and Jung. Jung was not at all pleased with Freud that he did not take the opportunity of being in Kreuzlingen to visit him also (cf. Jung's letter of 8 June 1912 to Freud; Freud 1974a, p. 509) and later described Freud's behaviour as the ‘Kreuzlingen gesture’ (see 71F). Freud and Jung discussed the incident at a conference of presidents of psychoanalytic societies in Munich on 24 November 1912 (cf. 81F and its note 2) during a two-hour walk before lunch and they became reconciled. Jung had to admit that he had not been in Zurich at all on the weekend of the visit and therefore Freud's announcement of the visit (on a postcard which was not delivered; see Freud 1974a, p. 509, note 3) had not arrived in time (cf. detailed report in Freud's letter of 26 November 1912 to Ferenczi, Freud 1992g, Vol. 1, pp. 433-5). The visit to Kreuzlingen was particularly important to Freud because he feared for Binswanger's life.

Binswanger made no notes about this visit. He reported on it for the first time, from memory, in his Reminiscences; the text is in the Appendix, p. 235. Also given in the Appendix is a passage from a letter in which Freud tells Ferenczi about the visit (p. 236).
