Psychology: Freud v Jung - Whose side are you on? With Kevin Walker

Ref: C3532643

Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung are arguably two of the most influential figures in modern Psychology. Their ideas are still highly controversial and are regarded by many as highly unscientific. Although originally very close, the story of their alienation from each others ideas exposes widely different ways of thinking about human nature. The person and ideas you feel most drawn to may well say more about you than them. On the basis of a personality test your tutor will try to predict which one you will prefer.
