Carl Gustav Jung (born July 26, 1875, Kesswil, Thurgau, Switzerland – died June 6, 1961, Küsnacht, Zürich, Switzerland) was a Swiss psychiatrist and founder of the school of analytical psychology.
Jung created some of the most known psychological concepts, including synchronicity, archetypes, the psychological complex, and the principle of individuation. He also developed the concepts of the extraverted and the introverted personality and the power of the unconscious.
Jung was also prolific writer and many of his works were not published until after his death. Some of his most popular books are Memories, Dreams, Reflections (1962), Modern Man in Search of a Soul (1933), and Man and His Symbols (1964).
His work has been influential not only in psychiatry but also in archaeology, anthropology, literature, religion, and many other related fields.
