Carl Jung: Who or what is hindering man from living peacefully on this earth?




To Carleton Smith

Dear Mr. President, 12 May 1959

In reply to your letter I should like to suggest a topic that concerns everybody in all ways of his life:

Who or what is hindering man from living peacefully on this earth?

The most disparate names you have mentioned as guests of the symposium are certainly difficult to unite under one capital question, but I think that the question I propose is the one that can go to the heart of every one of them.

Hoping that you and your family are in the best of health,

I remain,

Yours sincerely,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 506
