Sabina Spielrein: The Woman and the Myth

Long stigmatized as Carl Jung´s hysterical mistress, Sabina Spielrein (1885-1942) was in fact a key figure in the history of psychoanalytic thought. Born into a Russian Jewish family, she was institutionalized at nineteen in Zurich and became Jung´s patient. Spielrein went on to earn a doctorate in psychiatry, practiced for over thirty years, and published numerous papers, until her untimely death in the Holocaust. She developed innovative theories of female sexuality, child development, mythic archetypes in the human unconscious, and the death instinct. In Sabina Spielrein, Angela M. Sells examines Spielrein´s life and work from a feminist and mytho-poetic perspective. Drawing on newly translated diaries, papers, and correspondence with Jung and Sigmund Freud, Sells challenges the suppression of Spielrein´s ideas and shows her to be a significant thinker in her own right.

Angela M. Sells received her PhD in Mythology from the Pacifica Graduate Institute.
