Letters of C. G. Jung: Volume I, 1906-1950 (Vol 1)

[Carl Jung and “I cannot and shall not exclude non-Aryan speakers.”]

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.

I 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. 1, Page 242.
