To Markus Fierz
Dear Professor Fierz, 22 June 1949
I have read your great paper in the Eranos-Jahrbuch with avid interest.
1 I find it extraordinarily stimulating.
However, I am turning to you in another matter, namely the enclosed manuscript which Pauli has prompted me to write.
It is a putting together of my thoughts on the concept of synchronicity.
Since physicists are the only people nowadays who would be able to deal with such a concept successfully, it is from a physicist that I hope to meet with critical understanding although, as you will see, the empirical basis seems to lie wholly in the realm of psychic phenomena.
I should be extraordinarily grateful if you would be kind enough to go over my thinking critically, and grateful too for any criticism you may offer.
Unfortunately I am moving in very difficult and obscure territory where reason can easily go astray.
But as the problem seems to me of first-class importance, I would not like to neglect anything that might help the discussion.
I hope I am not making too heavy demands on your valuable time.
With best thanks in advance,
C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 529-530
