Freud liked to think of big, burly Gustav as a son: certainly he chose him as his successor. But Jung disagreed with the father's theory more and more, as time went on. So the divorce had to happen. Freud limped on without him. He still had Jones and Rank. Then Rank disagreed, and left. Freud still had Anna Freud. I don't mean anything dirty by that ' had.' She went on to write some advanced Freudian theory, and nursed him through his terminal illness as WW2 started around them. Reading this book may help you understand why so many of Freud's followers ended up disagreeing with so much of his theory. It's difficult, but you can do it. I know that you can. " Although the discoveries of Breuer and Freud are undoubtedly correct, in point of fact, as can easily be proved by any case of hysteria, several objections can be raised against the trauma theory." " An extreme theory about predisposition will be just as wrong as an extreme theory about environment." " Freud's brilliant empiricism...." " One patient told me, ' Je l'ai mis de cote.'" " My psychology is not monistic but, if anything, dualistic, being based on the principle of opposites, and possibly pluralistic, since it recognizes a multiplicity of relatively autonomous psychic complexes." " Freud depreciates the unconscious and seeks safety in the discriminating power of consciousness." " ' A contribution to the psychology of rumour,' ' On the Significance of Number Dreams,' ' Some Crucial Points in Psychoanalysis: a Correspondence between Dr. Jung and Dr. Loy,' ' The significance of the father in the destiny of the individual,' 'Freud and Jung: Contrasts' "
