Freud and Jung relax

Freud is a cultural icon, of course, and we have treated him in a purely academic manner in the course. This way of speaking about people sometimes makes it difficult for students to recall that such big name intellectuals were just ordinary people with their own desires, ambitions, jealousies, fears, etc. What was Freud actually like in day-to-day life? I can't answer that question completely, but today I came across some photographs taken of Freud just kind of hanging out with his friend Carl Jung. (Many thanks to Ramin from my tutorial group who got me thinking about Jung this morning in class.) You can see more of the photographs and some interesting comments here about the personal relationship between Freud and Jung as well as about their influence on each others' thinking.
