Carl Jung - The Wisdom of the Dream

The Wisdom of the Dream is a three-part PBS documentary on the life and work of Carl Gustav Jung, student and one-time heir of Freud and founder of Analytical Psychology. Joseph Campbell and James Hillman are probably two of the best known students of Jung, along with Hillman's student Thomas Moore (Care of Soul).
This film is one of a three-part series of films produced by PBS, on the life and works of the great thinker and psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. Born on July 26, 1875, in Switzerland, Jung became interested in psychiatry during his medical studies. He saw that the minds of mentally deranged persons had similar contents, much of which he recognized from his own interior life, described in his autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections. His lifelong quest to understand the workings of the psyche led him to develop the analytical method of psychiatry. He proceeded by looking at the role in his patients' lives of what he termed the personal and collective unconscious, as expressed through dreams, myths, and outer events.
