To Eric Benjamin Strauss

Dear Dr. Strauss, 26 March 1938

Thank you for your letter.

I shall answer it more fully when I have Professor Goring’s reply.

As you know pars. 2, 3, and 4 of our regulations allows the participation of everyone, quite apart from his political or religious convictions.

The question of race is not mentioned at all.

I should be much obliged if you could give me the list of those names which have aroused the discussion.

1 cannot and shall not exclude non-Aryan speakers.

The only condition on which I insist is that everybody, Aryan or non-Aryan, refrains from making remarks apt to arouse the political psychosis of our days.

If a speaker should trespass this limit, I should stop him right away.

A scientific Congress is not the place to indulge in political follies.

Sincerely yours,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Page 243
