[Carl Jung: “I would not be surprised if one day we saw a far-reaching agreement between the basic formulations of psychology and physics.]

To Oscar Hug 24 May 1938

Dear Colleague,

You have misunderstood my sentence.

I meant that though the methods of modern physics are different from those of psychology their fundamental ideas are not.

I would not be surprised if one day we saw a far-reaching agreement between the basic formulations of psychology and physics.

I am convinced that if the two sciences pursue their goals with the utmost consistency and right into the ultimate depths of man they must hit upon a common formula.

So far as “your psychological way” is concerned I would cautiously add “a psychological way.”

Psychological experience has as we know plenty of other aspects.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Page 246.
