Michael Fordham

The first issue of this Journal is dedicated to Professor C. G. Jung. It formed part of a specially bound volume presented to him as a gift by the members of the Society of Analytical Psychology in London, carrying with it their good wishes and congratulations on his 80th birthday. They believe it to be a meaningful coincidence that in this year the Society is also celebrating its own tenth anniversary.

The occasion is one to revive memories of Dr. H. G. Baynes who for many years pioneered virtually alone in this country. We owe him much: his publications, particularly The Mythology of the Soul, recently reprinted, continue to have their influence, but further he played the leading part in forming the first professional body of analysts in Britain. Soon after his death this group, composed largely of colleagues from Germany, to whom special gratitude is also due, formed themselves into the Society of Analytical Psychology Ltd.

Since those times, largely through the efforts of the Society, the influence of analytical psychology in Great Britain has increased progressively, particularly in the sphere of psychiatry which previously had paid almost no attention—and still pays insufficient attention—to Jung's discoveries. This growth is especially striking since it comes at a period in which physical methods of treatment seem to threaten the psychological approach to mental disorder.
