archetypes

A term used by the Swiss psychiatrist and mystical thinker Carl Jung (1875–1961) to characterize some of the features of the ‘collective unconscious’ he believed common to all humankind. Archetypes were, he believed, inherent tendencies to experience and symbolize the many different and important human situations in particular ways. Jung pointed out that all the great mythological and religious systems display these archetypes in common.
