Answer: Carl Jung

He also added the psychological senses of the following: complex, collective unconscious, archetype, animus and anima, and persona.

According to writer/physician Anthony Daniels: "This is not the same as saying, however, that he contributed to human knowledge: for it is perfectly possible to give names to non-existent entities."
