Sample text

1833–4. Krug was the author of the General Dictionary of the Philosophical Sciences (1820s/1830s) used by Jung. The language is almost biblical in its emphasis: when He revealed himself to Moses in the burning bush, God named Himself as ‘i am who i am’. Now Jung could forget about the manikin in the pencil-case in the loft, and begin to get on with being who he was. 52 Jung’s Philosophical Education Jung’s discovery of his own identity – of how he embarked on the path, in Nietzschean terms, of becoming who he was – took place, as all self-discovery must, in a specific historical, geographical and cultural context: in his case, in late nineteenth-century bourgeois Switzerland.

46 Like the image of the Copernican revolution, this passage has caused a good deal of controversy, but it may provide a context for the moment when Jung, in his famous interview with John Freeman in 1959, replied, 55 in response to a question about whether he believed in God: ‘I know. I don’t need to believe. ’47 It is common, and by no means entirely wrong, to read postKantian philosophy as a series of attempts to evade the restrictions Kant had placed on the knowledge of the noumenon. 48 One of the most sustained attempts to work within the Kantian paradigm, yet nevertheless radically to alter its conclusions, can be found in the thought of Schopenhauer, who argued that we can know what the noumenon is.

Using his father’s library as a starting-point, Jung began to read the novels of Friedrich Gerstäcker (1816–1872), the author of numerous bestsellers informed by his global travels. He read (in translation) the great English novels, and despite the best efforts (then as now) of 53 the education system to spoil them, the classics of German literature. Jung had a voracious bibliographical appetite: he read drama, poetry, history, science. Of the philosophical tradition in a stricter sense, Jung felt himself attracted to the thought of the Presocratic philosophers: to Pythagoras (known as the ‘first philosopher’), to Heraclitus, to Empedocles.
