When Aniela Jaffé showed Hull, the translator of the Collected Works, the Red Book in 1961, Hull thought that the raw material of Jung’s experience was very reminiscent of Schreber’s. He literally said that Jung’s experience “is Schreber’s world all over again”.
The case of the Saxon Court of Appeal Judge Paul Daniel Schreber is one of Freud’s well-known clinical cases and is certainly the case most criticised and written about. He analysed Schreber’s memoirs, having never met the patient. Schreber was discussed by Jung and Freud in their correspondence, and face-to-face, which formed, in part, the clinical basis of their individual thinking and differences.
This paper addresses Hull’s claim and will consider whether there is an overlap of personalities between Jung and Schreber or whether Jung’s individuation was markedly different, perhaps a moment of crisis, but essentially creative.
Hessel Willemsen is a Training Analyst of the SAP. He is interested in the role of trauma in early development as well as the personalities of the pioneering analytic thinkers. He is in private practice in Finsbury Park, London.

CAPS Lecture - Transference and the reality of the message
15 May 2015
Drinks at 6.30pm
Lecture at 7pm
Transference is the reenactment of a psychic reality that was either repressed or rejected. According to Laplanche, transference is provoked by the analyst. Freud, on his part, proposed that patients “must surely be right in some way”; that delusions contain a kernel of historical truth. The author explores these notions with the help of Laplanche’s Theory of Generalized Seduction, where the notion of “message” and its reality really constitute what Freud called “psychic reality”. Clinically, the speaker examines how, in practice and in theory, one can make use of these theoretical reference points when facing the challenge posed by a delusional form of transference.
