“My Former Attitude:
‘Psychology’ is something dark, a foreign territory that was dangerous to tread, with ‘the Unconscious’ as something working on us by itself without our knowing it.
I lost the feeling of helpless awe towards what is called ‘the Unconscious’. Earlier I thought of dark forces which were playing all kinds of tricks on me, never approachable, something I ought to be ashamed of possessing, not daring to look it into the face.
But the Unconscious is not something to be wholesomely afraid of. To a large extend, it is a friend and helper.”
[Thus began Jupp’s talk “On Psychology” in 1941. These are his notes, slightly modified for better readability.]
