In 1909, while he was still closely associated with Freud, Jung began a series of informal dinner conversations in Zurich with a new friend, Albert Einstein.

At the time, Einstein was a professor of theoretical physics at the local university, and was already deeply involved in his own disruptive journey, the creation of the theory of relativity.

Between 1909 and 1913, right in the heart of Einstein’s unraveling of the universe, he and Carl Jung regularly met over dinner to discuss their individual studies and share their thoughts. Unfortunately, none of these conversations were ever recorded in detail.

In this video, presenter Frederick Tamagi explores how Jung was influenced by Einstein.
