C. G. Jung and Adolf Keller: A Conversation between Psychology and Theology
Following the publication of The Jung-White Letters in the Philemon Series, in which Jung engaged with dialogue with a Catholic theologian, The Jung-Keller Letters presents Jung in dialogue with a Protestant theologian. Adolf Keller, a Swiss Protestant theologian, was one of the first pastors to become interested in psychoanalysis, and came into contact with Jung in 1909. He sided with Jung after the latter’s separation from the psychoanalytic movement and played an active role in the ‘Zurich school’ and in the Psychological Club.
At the same time, his wife, Tina Keller had analysis with Jung and Toni Wolff and went on to become a psychotherapist and key representative of analytical psychology in Geneva for many years. Keller was a key figure in the development of the ecumenical movement. Towards the end of their lives, Jung and Keller took up an intense discussion of psychological and theological issues in correspondence, which is published here for the first time.
