Pauli, on the other hand, became increasingly sensitive to the philosophical aspects concerning the unconscious. Jung and Pauli were convinced that synchronistic events reveal an underlying unity of mind and matter, subjective synchronicith objective realities. The connection between the woman telling the dream and the appearance of the actual beetle is non-causal — the inner dream experience did not cause the beetle to appear, and yet there is a connection through meaning for the woman.

This article is about the philosophical concept. Jung and Pauli’s common reflections went far beyond psychology and physics, entering into the realm where the two areas meet in the philosophy of nature.

They began working together in a collaboration that lasted for several decades, though mostly behind closed doors: Mind, Matter and Quantum Mechanics. Even at Jung’s presentation of his work on synchronicity in at an Eranos lecture, his ideas on synchronicity were evolving.


Two or more events seemingly accidental, but not necessarily simultaneously, are called synchronistic if the following conditions are met: It was necessary to recognize that the rational scientific approach was only a way to see and interpret the world; another approach — complementary to the previous — implied that subsequent research on the reality could no longer be conducted by separating matter and psyche, but that both sides were to enter into a process of joint research.

Synchronicity: the encounter between the psychoanalyst Jung and the physicist Pauli

Jung — Lettera a Pauli del 4 maggio — in: A mysterious event that did not seem at first to be connected with Pauli’s presence once occurred in Professor J. Jung believed life was not a series of random events but rather an expression of a deeper order, which he and Pauli referred to as Unus mundus.

That an archetypal force is at work, and not just an inspired guess, was suggested to Jung by the feeling of exhilaration occasioned by the discovery. How are we synchrohicity recognize acausal combinations of events, since it is obviously impossible to examine all chance happenings for their causality? The definition of synchronicity, as developed by Jung in agreement with the comments and the positions of Pauli, is the following:.


Beyond synchronicity: the worldview of Carl Gustav Jung and Wolfgang Pauli.

Pauli had already done work foundational for the new field of quantum mechanics, developed the Exclusion Principle for which he would be awarded the Nobel Prize inbecome the youngest person ever to hold the Chair of Theoretical Physics at Zurich, and postulated the existence of the neutrino which was not demonstrated experimentally until by the time of this meeting. Jung pursued this question in an odd relationship of his own, with one of the great physicists of the 20th century, Wolfgang Pauli.

Who ever studies this mature and grandly composed word would not believe that the author is a man of twenty-one. During five months of analysis with Rosenbaum, Pauli recorded hundreds of dreams.

Pauli and to my thesis of psychic synchronicity. More than 30 years later the stimulus led to my relation with the physicist professor W.
