The book [Memories Dreams and Reflections] should appear under her [Jaffe’s] name and not under mine, since it does not represent an autobiography that I myself have composed. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 550.

His “autobiography” he came to reluctantly; it was “the one thing I am not going to write” he had said in 1948.

Strictly speaking, it is not an autobiography.

He always spoke and wrote of it as “Aniela Jaffe’s project,” with contributions made by him in the form of childhood, travel, and closing chapters. ~Claire Dunne, Wounded Healer of the Soul, Page 194.

I want to thank you for your efforts on behalf of my so-called “Autobiography” and to reaffirm that I do not regard this book as my undertaking but expressly as a book which Frau A. Jaffe has written. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 550.

I have always vowed I would never write an autobiography and in this case have only wetted my feet a little; it is rather Frau Jaffe who is writing a biography to which I have made a few contributions. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 531

Dear Walther, 5 April 1960

I want to thank you for your efforts on behalf of my so-called “Autobiography” and to reaffirm that I do not regard this book as my undertaking but expressly as a book which Frau A. Jaffe has written.

The chapters in it that are written by me I regard as a contribution to Frau Jaffe’s work.

The book should appear under her name and not under mine, since it does not represent an autobiography that I myself have composed.

With cordial regards,

Your father-in-law,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 550.
