To Olga Frobe-Kapteyn

Dear Frau Frobe, 16 August 1947

The dissolution of the transference often consists in ceasing to describe the nature of one’s relationship as “transference.”

This designation degrades the relationship to a mere projection, which it is not.

“Transference” consists in the illusion of its uniqueness, when seen from the collective and conventional standpoint.

“Uniqueness” lies simply and solely in the relationship between individuated persons, who have no other relationships at all except individual, i.e., unique ones.

Of course it is all right with me if the lectures begin at 9:30.

Kindest regards,

Ever sincerely,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Page 475
