Zusatztext "In its way, Analytical Psychology in Exile serves as a contribution to the challenge of creating tolerance and understanding for otherness and difference in our own time, and it makes one impatient for additional volumes in the Philemon Series to appear." ---Paul Bishop, Isis Informationen zum Autor Martin Liebscher is senior research fellow in German and honorary senior lecturer in psychology at University College London.

Zusammenfassung Two giants of twentieth-century psychology in dialogue C. G. Jung and Erich Neumann first met in 1933, at a seminar Jung was conducting in Berlin. Jung was fifty-seven years old and internationally acclaimed for his own brand of psychotherapy. Neumann, twenty-eight, had just finished his studies in medicine. The two men struck up a correspondence that would continue until Neumann's death in 1960. A lifelong Zionist, Neumann fled Nazi Germany with his family and settled in Palestine in 1934, where he would become the founding father of analytical psychology in the future state of Israel.

They affirm Neumann’s importance as a leading psychologist of his time and paint a fascinating picture of the psychological impact of immigration on the German Jewish intellectuals who settled in Palestine and helped to create the state of Israel.
