News What We Are Reading Today: ‘Psychiatric Studies’

Translated by R. F. C. Hull

“Psychiatric Studies” gathers writings on descriptive and experimental psychiatry that Jung published between 1902 and 1905, early in his career as a psychiatrist.

The book opens with a study that foreshadows much of his later work and is indispensable to all serious students of his psychiatric career.

This is his medical-degree dissertation, “On the Psychology and Pathology of So-called Occult Phenomena,” a detailed analysis of the case of an adolescent girl who professed to be a medium.
