Both Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung were so influential that they have become adjectives. But their story begins with Freud. Young Sigmund was the first one to push the idea of the unconscious on the masses. Freud thought that the best window into the unconscious was the dream, and he fixated on sexual development and the libido. It’s no wonder, then, that Freud believed that a lot of humanity’s problems came from repressed libidos. As for Carl Jung, Freud’s slightly younger contemporary, he fathered analytic psychology. This was based on the idea that the conscious and unconscious minds need to be in harmony with each other. If not, you get neuroses, like depression or phobias. Early in his career, Jung befriended Freud, but Jung quickly moved away from his predecessor’s theories, emphasizing the role of myth, art, and religion in informing the unconscious. Despite their differences, Freud and Jung once went to Coney Island together in 1909. Our guess is that Jung found the Loop the Loop to be the archetypal roller coaster, while Freud probably found the whole place phallic and hysteria inducing.
