IT was more a difference of opinion, a different theory. Jung saw the possibility that the Universe itself played a part in the existence in each individual's life. That great forces of nature, the same ones that played a role in other places and at other times, were at work in peoples' lives everywhere and at all times. Freud came to his intellectual maturity at a time and place where individuality was primary and sacred. To him, thinking that some indefinable Universal force was at work was simply incomprehensible. Whatever affected a person had to be, naturally, local and individual, taking place here and now. Other than that, they were basically in agreement about...everything. Freud also was a great listener, you know, and a great believer in adapting what happened to people to other circumstances rather than turning to cut-and-dried diagnoses. He gets a bad rap--in some cases perhaps deservedly--because of all his emphasis on sex.
