C. G. Jung: “Man has a soul and there is a buried treasure in the field.”



Letter of Eugene Rolfe: The Treasure in the Field


I had to understand that I was unable to make the people see what I am after.

I am practically alone.  

There are a few who understand this and that, but almost nobody sees the whole. .. 

I have failed in my foremost task,  to open people’s eyes  to the fact  that man  has a soul and there is a buried treasure in the field,  and that our religion and philosophy are in a lamentable state.

Letter to Eugene Rolfe, 1960   (seven months before Jung’s death)
