Erich Neumann was arguably Jung’s most gifted and creative student. The two maintained a friendship until Neumann’s untimely death in 1960. Neumann was born in Berlin, Germany and received his Ph.D. in Philosophy in 1927. He returned to study medicine, but this was cut short by the advent of the Nazis. He and his family emigrated to Israel in 1934 where Neuman was influential in founding the Israel Association of Analytical Psychology. As a Jew, he was influential in correcting Jung’s original perception of the psyche of the Jewish people. He wrote a number of important books including The Origins and History of Consciousness, The Great Mother, The Child, and Amor and Psyche.
