This person was a psychologist whose theories of the unconscious locate the source of all struggle not in infant sexual development, but in a collective unconscious.
This character is the archetypal figure of the son who kills his father and sleeps with his mother.
This figure is someone who does not have to repress his urges, but who receives his food from the earth without apparent labor.
This figure is a creature in whom the pleasure-principle is initially dominant, until it is intruded upon by the reality principle, as the child realizes that he (typically) is not in control of the world.
This figure represents the reality principle, and his power to punish the child or deny it love is so powerful that it becomes the basis for all of religion, and even of the cultural super-ego.
