Example text

63 Elsewhere Jung wrote that Du BoisReymond was “A professor drowned in mechanistic psychology and nerveand-muscle physics is sowing the poisonous seed that fecundates confused minds . . Gradually the mud is seeping down from the heights of the university. ”64 Anti-Materialism and Anti-Semitism at the Fin de Siècle In this lecture Jung appealed directly to the social prejudices of his audience, proud sons of the Basel patrician class. He hoped to win converts to his antimaterialistic position by clearly linking materialism to one of the period’s major developments, the expansion of an urban working class that sought its identity in the writings of Karl Marx and formed socialist parties to promote its interests.

96 Jung here identified an important shift in taste occurring in late-nineteenthcentury German-speaking Europe. The younger generation was enthusiastically taking up the call of Zarathustra to live life to the fullest. This meant treating life as a total work of art and led to the call for a Gesamtkunstwerk (“total artwork”) that included not just the fine arts but such applied arts as interior decoration and furniture. ” Nietzsche invited each of them to treat personality as a work of art. The very passions that upset Burckhardt about Nietzsche were the key to his appeal and dominant influence on the emerging Lebensphilosophie (“life philosophy”) movement.

Even at the time participants were sensitive to the quasi-racial vocabulary being used to describe and usually deride psychoanalysis; it is now widely agreed that Freud’s adoption of Jung as his “crown prince” was part of his plan to insure that psychoanalysis would avoid being labeled “a Jewish national affair” and become an accepted part of mainstream science. Freud’s success in “conquering” the Burghölzli created hurt feelings among his original Viennese followers who resented their loss of status.
