In 1909, Freud and Jung sailed to the USA to lecture at Clark University, at the invitation of G. Stanley Hall, the founder of the American Psychology Association. These lectures attracted many famous intellectual figures of the time, including William James. During the trip, Freud, Jung and James all stayed at Hall's house. This book provides a remarkably intimate inside look at these personalities, their ideas and their interaction, and their broader influence on the times. Sources not hitherto available have been utilized, such as Freud's travel diary, on deposit in the restricted portion of the Library of Congress. Similar sources have been used for the contributions of Jung, Hall and James. By examining the impact of Freud on James, an unrecognized romantic friendship during the last 15 years of James's life has been disclosed.
