The Grandfather

Andreas Jung

The author, grandson of C.G. Jung, architect and historian, resident in the Küsnacht house, offers perspectives on the role of the grandfather. C.G. had a difficult relationship with his father but felt a strong rapport with his grandfather Karl Gustav Jung, even though he died before C.G.'s birth. Andreas notes that there were many parallels in the lives of the two men; C.G.'s memories and the touching personal diary left behind by Karl Gustav will be discussed. Many of Jung's other ancestors will be described from his own personal angle. The paper also encompasses C.G.'s spiritual forerunners and finally the dead, our common nameless ancestors.
