Obituary Notices

Charles Baudouin

CHARLES BAUDOUIN died suddenly on 25 August 1963. He was less known in Britain than on the Continent, and we publish a tribute from one of his close friends and collaborators, which speaks for the loss which his death means to those who knew him.

He was born in Nancy in 1893 and went to Paris, to the Sorbonne, graduating in 1912. With Pierre Bovet and Edouard Claparéde he founded the Institut Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and in 1924 the Institut International de Psychologie and the revue Action et pensée. Subsequently, he became professor at Geneva.

His relation to Jung was close, and his last publication C. G. Jung pays tribute to Jung's greatness. A short bibliography of Baudouin's main writings is appended.

Charles Baudouin, The Vigilant

“When one is in the grip of emotion it is difficult to speak of a much-loved person who has died. We all knew that Charles Baudouin conceived the idea of his vocation in solitude but, observing closely his work and his extra-ordinary activity in so many fields, we were often nearer to his mind than to his soul. His last statement, the lecture he gave to inaugurate the 18th Rencontres Internationales de Genève, reminded us how essentially the spirit of truth was, for him, inseparable from the spirit of humility. What is the secret of the devotion that the teaching of such a master inspires, and what the source of that peculiar power through which a man becomes a focal point for others and remains one after his death? What lies behind the mystery of the sense of his presence even across great distances? I should like, with the most tender and affectionate loyalty to him, to express my belief that such a miracle is the result of his absolute sincerity towards himself. Baudouin's work and his life were alike, were one and the same; he was no different in his private daily life from what he was as a “public man”.
