Carl Jung (1887-1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist who founded the school of analytic psychology. A student who broke with Sigmund Freud, he was a early proponent (along with Alfred Adler) of a well-balanced, individual, holistic view.
His famous theories of the collective unconscious and synchronicity draw on Eastern philosophy. He emphasized spiritual awakening in the second half of life, the value of dreams and archetypes.
His theories are the foundation of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and influenced the method actor training in performing arts.
Using his analytical psychology approach, he had people do life reviews, and even examined Bill Wilson, co-founder of 12-step programs, in an effort to explore human consciousness.
