|Carl G. Jung|
I have posted a few articles where I have been using the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung to discuss the transgender psyche.
Only one post remains, but before I publish that one, I would like to take a look at to what extent Jung discussed transgender conditions.
Here are all the posts in the transgender psychology series:
1: The Role of the Unconscious
2: The Ego and the Complexes
3: The Shadow
4: The Animus and the Anima
5: The Other Side of your Transgender Soul - from Dostoyevski to Buffy the Vampire Slayer
6: Transgender and the mind and body conundrum
7: Spellbound transgender
8: Ponyo for Crossdreamers
9: Falling in love with your own anima

Jung ignored the transgender
Did Carl Gustav Jung himself say anything about crossdreamers, crossdressers or transvestites?
As far as I can see, he did not.
That is a bit peculiar, really, as there had already been published some interesting research on trasvestites in Berlin, which might have given him some input on his discussion on the crossgender nature of the collective unconscious (Magnus Hirschfield: Die Transvestiten 1910)
