From the Back Cover
After joining the staff of the Burgholzli Mental Hospital in 1900, Jung developed and applied the word association tests for studying normal and abnormal psychology. Between 1904 and 1907 he published nine studies on the association experiments, of which six were brought together, with articles by other researchers, in a collection later published in English as Studies In Word-Association (1918). The present volume consists of the original nine studies together with tow lectures on the association method that Jung gave in 1909 when, with Freud, he was invited to Clark University, Worcester, Massachusetts, and three articles on psychophysical researches.

Here are some representative quotations from the book:
"Finally, it may be permissible to point out once more that an overwhelming number of the complexes we have discovered in our subjects are erotic. In view of the great part played by love and sexuality in human life, this is not surprising."
"The art of the method, which is never easy to use, lies in distinguishing the reactions connected with a complex from the irrelevant ones. I have therefore compiled a series of so-called 'complex characteristics.' In principle the complex-characteristics are the same for normal and pathological associations. Furthermore, to lay bare the complex is of far-reaching significance in applying our experiments to the field of criminal psychology."
"Anyone inexperienced in the field of pathological association psychology will probably shake his head at the above suppositions; he will perhaps see in them not just hypotheses but sheer phantasms. The judgment on them will perhaps be the same as on Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams: The Complete and Definitive Text."
"One must get rid of the idea that people with a good education and some insight can always recognize and admit their own complexes. Every human mind contains much that is not admitted..."
