Gurevich, P. S., Spirova, E. M. Death as a Guarantee of Love (Talking About Sabina Spielrein’s and Carl Gustav Jung’s Relationship)

Published in journal "Psychology and Psychotechnics", 2014-10 in rubric "Continent of the unconscious", pages 1071-1083.

Resume: The article is based on documentary materials and scientific texts and describes the love relations between Sabina Spielrein and Carl Gustav Jung. Their love lasted for several decades, had a certain influence on their theories and resulted in discovered made by them both individually and together. Sabina Spielrein was one of the distinguished representatives of psychoanalytical theory. Her scientific work still needs to be studied. Her difficult life circumstances did not allow her to become famous. The authors of the present article are trying to repair the injustice. The main research method used by the author is historicism. The authors analyze the bases of psychoanalytical theory researched by Sabina Spielrein and describe her contribution to the development of psychoanalysis. The authors have also used philosophical and anthropological approaches allowing to reveal specific features of human nature. The novelty of the article is in the authors’ attempt to analyze Sabina Spielrein’s achievements and prove her leading role in creation of the basic ideas of psychoanalysis. In particular, Sigmund Freud himself recognized her contribution to the development of the concept of Thanatos. In addition, the authors of the article describe the kind of love experienced by Spielrein and Jung and reflected in their research work.

Keywords: psychoanalysis, love, death, hysterical character, Spielrein, Eros, Thanatos, projection, symbols, identity.
