RESENDE, Pedro Henrique Costa de  e  MELO, Walter. William James and Carl Gustav Jung in the conference at Clark: theoretical repercussions. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.3, pp. 875-898. ISSN 1677-1168.

The work of Carl Gustav Jung is still poorly researched in the academic context. Due to the lack of studies on the author’s theoretical foundation, many consider his work as influenced only by Freudian psychoanalysis. However, Jung himself, along his collected works, points the figure of William James as the author who most encouraged him in his researches. In 1909, still inserted in the psychoanalytic movement, the Swiss author travels to America, where he presents, in the Clark University Conference, his well-known study of word associations. In this conference, Jung meets William James. From that historic meeting the references to the American thinker intensify. The aim of this study is to highlight the main themes of Jamesian theory that impact significantly on the C. G. Jung’s psychology, especially his psychiatric studies, review of pragmatism, his theory of the unconscious, theory of emotions and religious experience.

Palavras-chave : Carl Gustav Jung; William James; Analytical Psychology.
