SIGMUND FREUD CHRONOLOGY

Publication of Delusion and Dreams in W. Jensen's 'Gradiva'.
Jung drew his notice to this novella. Freud analyses the dreams and delusions of Jensen's character, a young archaeologist. "Artists are valuable colleagues and their testimony is of great worth," he writes on his relationship with literature, "for they generally know about more things in heaven and earth than are yet dreamt of in our philosophy."
