MARIE-LOUISE VON FRANZ (1915–1998)
Marie-Louise von Franz was a Jungian psychologist and scholar known for her psychological interpretations of fairy tales and of alchemical manuscripts. She worked with C. G. JUNG, whom she met in 1933, until his death in 1961 and founded the Jung Institute in Zurich. As a psychotherapist, she practiced primarily in Küsnacht, Switzerland. Known as a compassionate and effective analyst who interpreted more than 65,000 dreams, she lectured widely in the United States and elsewhere. Among her many books are The Grail Legend (with EMMA JUNG); Alchemy: An Introduction to the Symbolism and the Psychology; The Interpretation of Fairy Tales; The Problem of the Puer Aeternus; and Alchemical Active Imagination.
Two world-reknowned psychologists give detailed accounts of C. G. Jung’s personality types—the most famous part of his psychology—with examples, anecdotes, and humor.
In her essay, “The Inferior Function,” Marie-Louise von Franz shows the inferior shadow side of each of the eight kinds of typical functioning, while James Hillman differentiates in his essay, “The Feeling Function,” genuine feeling from look-alikes and substitutes.
Both essays are a rich source of ideas for study and an enjoyable guide for self-discovery. Full of psychological insights into personal habits, temperaments, and character.
