Carl Jung: Memories Dreams and Reflections is not an Autobiography




To Walther Niehus-Jung

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.
