A most dangerous method By John Kerr (1993)

About the Book
Carl Jung’s forgotten lover, a true woman influencer of the early psychoanalyst movement

#CarlJung’s forgotten lover, a true woman influencer of the early psychoanalyst movement
This book is phenomenal by all standards. It should be an essential read for anyone studying psychology but certainly especially for those choosing to be psychodynamic or relational therapists. It is an intellectual history about
(1) a forgotten woman psychoanalyst Sabina Spielrein, a pioneer – who influenced Jungs “anima” work, who worked under Freud, and first-hand influenced Luria, Vygotsky and Piaget. (She was tragically murdered in 1942, along with her two daughters by the SS, Nazi death squad. It is blashphemous that she isn’t mentioned in any of our “Personality” textbooks, nor did she receive the recognition that she deserved.)
(2) It is also a history of the undoing of the Freud-Jung intimacy i.e. how they went from being like son and father to breaking-up.
