Jungian Psychology Space menu

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.

Tombs of C.G. Jung, B. Hannah, and M.L. von Franz

The graves of C.G. Jung, Barbara Hannah, Marie-Louise von Franz and other members of their family are located in the cemetery in Küsnacht.

An inscription in Latin surrounds the headstone of C.G. Jung’s family grave :

  • Primus Homo de terra terrenus | The first man is from the earth
  • Secundus homo de caelo caelestis | The second man is from heaven
  • Vocatus atque non vocatus Deus aderit | Invoked or not invoked, God is present

Close by there is a second tomb where Barbara Hannah (1891-1986) and Marie-Louise von Franz (1915-1998) are buried. There’s also a lantern in the shape of the square M.L. von Franz Tower in Bollingen.
