This site is dedicated to the work founded by Carl Gustav Jung.

The intention of the website is to provide a bridge between the anglophone and francophone Jungian communities in the world.

JPS contains part of the content of Espace Francophone Jungien that has been translated into English.

In addition, it contains anglophone articles, whose French translations have been published on the Francophone mother site.

Kesswil in Switzerland

Carl Gustav Jung was born in Kesswil on the 26th of July in 1875.

This small village of nearly 1000 inhabitants is situated on the banks of Lake Constance (Bodensee), in the canton of Thurgau in Switzerland. Highway 13 runs through it.

A memorial plaque was placed on the facade of the vicarage, where C.G. Jung was born (see photo below: the plaque is situated at the bottom, to the right of the structure).


In this house was born Carl Gustav Jung, defined as:
« explorer of the human soul and its hidden depths ».

Typical houses in Kesswil, with town hall (above).

A street was named after C.G. Jung: it’s a dead-end street that runs alongside the rail tracks and serves a new neighborhood.
