Carl Jung at Fordham: Looking Back 100 Years Later


In September of 1912, Fordham was the site of a watershed moment in the history of psychoanalysis.

Renowned psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung delivered a series of lectures that set the stage for his future work—including a decisive break from the theories of his friend and colleague, Sigmund Freud.

On Oct. 26, Fordham will mark the 100th anniversary of this milestone in psychoanalysis with a two-day conference at the site of the original lectures.
