Psychologist and psychotherapist who wrote on parapsychology in the context of Jungian psychology. Jacobi was born on March 25, 1890, at Budapest, Hungary, and later studied at the University of Vienna (Ph.D. psychology, 1938). She trained as a psychotherapist with C. G. Jung from 1938 to 1943. In 1947 she joined the staff as a lecturer for the Institute for Applied Psychology, University of Zürich, and the C. G. Jung Institute. She published a number of articles on depth psychology, Jungian psychology, and parapsychology, and she lectured on such topics throughout Europe. She also contributed a chapter, "Dream of the Oracle," to the volume honoring Jung's eightieth birthday.
