Carl Gustav Jung was the son of a philologist and pastor. He received an M.D. in 1902 from the University of Zurich. He began work as an Assistant Staff Physician at the Burgholzli Mental Clinic in Zurich in 1902. Later, he served as a Lecturer in Psychiatry at the University of Zurich and worked closely with Sigmund Freud until their break in 1913. He became one of the most influential psychiatrists of the 20th century. His groundbreaking work introduced the concepts of introversion; extroversion; Anima and Animus; the collective unconscious; and among others into our culture. He is buried in a family grave at the Protestant Church Graveyard in Kusnacht. The gravestone is rectangular, about five feet in height, bearing the arms of the Jung family, and beneath this, the names of his father, mother, sister Gertrud, wife Emma Jung-Rauschenbach, and C.G. Jung. The top and bottom borders repeat, in Latin, the motto he choose for his house "Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit" (Called or not called, God will be present). The right and left sides contain a passage in Latin from St. Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians (1 Cor. 15:47): "Primus homo de terra terrenus. Secundus homo de caelo caelestis." (The first man is of the earth and is earthly. The second man is of heaven and is heavenly).
