The collected works of C. G. Jung Volume 18 – The Symbolic Life

I would like to point out to my critic that I have in my time been regarded not only as a Gnostic and its opposite, but also as a theist and an atheist, a mystic and a materialist.

In this concert of contending opinions I do not wish to lay too much stress on what I consider myself to be, but will quote a judgment from a leading article in the British Medical Journal (9 February 1952), a source that would seem to be above suspicion.

“Facts first and theories later is the keynote of Jung’s work. He is an empiricist first and last.”

This view meets with my approval. ~Carl Jung, CW 18, Page 664
