Christian Gaillard, president of IAAP, saidin his opening address: “China, especially,our relationship and our exchanges with China, with the Chinese culture, aredear to our heart since the very inception of the IAAP – and even, I would say, since the very beginningof the Jungian psychology and analysis. Thus I am sure we deepen ourselves inopening our organisation and our minds to East. And I do think that the themeof this congress, “Eastand West. Ethics and Wisdom”,is the right theme for the encounters of these days.”


Prof. Wang Guojian,the president of theSouth China Normal University, said in his opening address: “There is a profoundconnection between Jung’s analytical psychology and Chinese culture.When Professor Jung assimilates the spirit of Chinese Culture to develop histheory of analytical psychology, he is also transmitting Chinese culture to theentire world.” He said: “Mr. Jung had built a bridge of communicationon psychology between east culture and western culture. Today, Jungian analystsfrom all over the world and psychologists and scholars on Chinese cultures fromall over China is meeting again on the bridge crossing east and west.”


Embassy of Switzerland to China sent theirgreeting to the conference: “Carl Gustav Jung, the Swiss psychologistwhose ideas lie at the basis of analytical psychology, was a pioneer inbuilding an active cultural exchange and comprehension between East and West.Jung’s encounter with Richard Wilhelm, the German sinologistwas decisive in building a bridge between Western thinking and Chinesetradition. Jung recognized that Eastern philosophy and religion could greatlyenrich western psychology. He thereby initiated a real dialogue between Eastand West, based on open-mindedness, multicultural understanding and mutualrespect.”
