Man cannot stand a meaningless life – Carl Jung

Here’s a 1959, BBC interview with Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung. The great man died just 18 months later.

He talks about his early years and the evolution of his thinking.

It’s a fascinating 40 minutes for your Weekend Watch.

It’s also on the BBC iPlayer, here.

As a bonus, here are a couple of extracts on Jung from a 1984 BBC series called Sea of Faith:
