Karl Jaspers publishes his Critique for psychoanalysis in 1950. This contribution represents the culmination of a journey originated many years before with the publication of General Psychopathology in 1913. In order to better understand the culmination of Jaspers’ journey the Author will take the following points into consideration: the stages that marked the history of Jaspers’ critical thought; the historical context; the tone of his criticism and, finally, its content. The final part of this essay attempts to show how some of Jaspers’ critical observations on psychoanalysis should not be considered as a thing of the past, because they were and still are a fundamental topic of discussion and debate within the Freudian psychoanalytic movement (International Psychoanalytical Association).
