The original pattern or model of a work; or the model from which a thing is made or formed.
A Jungian term referring to an idea, mode of thought, or "god form" that has crystallized from the inherited experiences of the species, from the "collective unconscious."
a recurrent character, setting, or pattern from early literature.
According to Carl Jung, archetypes are characters, images, plot patterns, rituals, and settings that are shared by diverse cultures. Jung believed that archetypes are part of humanity's "collective unconscious" and that they appear in literature, myth, folklore, and rituals from a wide range of cultures. They also manifest themselves in the subconscious thoughts and dreams of people. Literary critic Northrop Frye argued that literary archetypes are recurrent images and symbols in literature.
A psychological pattern or idea that we use in our life journey (katabasis) and in our roleplaying. Common archetypes include the Innocent, Orphan, Warrior, Caregiver, Seeker, Destroyer, Lover, Creator, Ruler, Magician, Sage and Fool. Cultural universals that help us understand ourselves.
(Jung) Basic type for form.
The original pattern or model of which all things of the same type are representations or copies. An inherited idea, concept, or mode of thought, or psychic influence.
A term used by psycho-theorist Carl Jung to describe the essence of concepts and experiences. These can manifest in many different ways, according to the person's culture, family norms, individuality, etc. In astrology, it is helpful to think of the planets, signs and houses as expressing and symbolising different levels of various archetypes in the human psyche. Pronounced: AR-keh-type.
Primordial symbols that, according to C. G. Jung, are the universal contents of the collective unconscious and as such are represented in the myths of the world and in dreams of individuals. Artists in touch with the collective psyche may employ archetypes in works of art, and people respond powerfully because of unconscious identification with universal characters, places, objects, events and themes. Archetypes refer to the generic symbol more than to the specific content of an image, which may be culturally driven. Examples include the Shadow and Persona, the Magna Mater, the Anima and Animus, God and the Devil. For a fuller list of archetypal figures, see Lesson 3.
The original and essential form (or universal type) of a concept or character, to which all succeeding examples are compared and must conform. In Deut 18:15, for example, Moses is presented as the archetype of a prophet from God, as David is similarly the archetype of a divinely supported monarch.
The ideal form of something, the original pattern, model and paragon of any concrete reality is its archetype. Sacred philosophy has understood that the forms of temporal and material reality are patterned according to archetypal realities which transcend their temporal forms. Such patterns exist in a realm of transcendence, but their shadows also manifest in the unconsciousness of human being.

A fundamental original pattern.
A symbol, usually an image, which recurs often enough in literature to be recognizable as an element of one's literary experience as a whole. Carl Jung used the term "archetype" to refer to the generalized patterns of images that form the world of human representations in recurrent motifs, passing through the history of all culture.
The word archetype is commonly used to describe an original pattern or model from which all other things of the same kind are made. This term was introduced to literary criticism from the psychology of Carl Jung. It expresses Jung's theory that behind every person's "unconscious," or repressed memories of the past, lies the "collective unconscious" of the human race: memories of the countless typical experiences of our ancestors. These memories are said to prompt illogical associations that trigger powerful emotions in the reader. Often, the emotional process is primitive, even primordial. Archetypes are the literary image s that grow out of the "collective unconscious." They appear in literature as incidents and plot s that repeat basic patterns of life. They may also appear as stereotyped character Examples of literary archetypes include theme s such as birth and death and characters such as the Earth Mother.
An image, a descriptive detail, a plot pattern, or a character type that occurs frequently in literature, myth, religion, or folklore and is, therefore, believed to evoke profound emotions.
The image or model existing in the collective unconscious for all material manifestations of things of the same type or essence.
plot or character element that recurs in cultural or cross-cultural myths, such as "the quest" or "descent into the underworld" or "scapegoat."
a universal character modeled upon those that have been appearing in stories since the time of our ancient ancestors.
Appears in consciousness as a universal and recurring image, pattern or motif representing a typical human experience. Archetypal images come from the collective unconscious and are the basic content of religions, mythologies, leg ends and art. They also emerge from the collective un conscious in individuals through dreams and visions. The encounter with an archetypal image evokes a strong emotional reaction, conveying a sense of divine or transpersonal power which transcends the ego.
The Jungian word for an arch-symbol, an image whose meanings lie deeply rooted in our racial history, presumably all the way back to the time when our ancestors were immortal amoebas swimming about in the primordial soup. Archetypes are what we all remember, our faces from before we were born. Upon this Jung and his followers base the universal character of symbols, an assertion which falls under all but the most tortured cross-cultural analysis. Some critics dilute the term so that it only stands for an image or type repeated in a body of literature or art over time, such as the Sun in Western European literature.
The archetype in film and literature is a constant character or pattern of action that consistently appears in history and is developed in literature and other forms of artistic expression.
Original model of character; one of the Archetypes.
Symbols or images that represent the emotions or knowledge of the subconscious mind. Images within a tarot card are symbols or messages for a recipient, these images are the archetypes or mirrors of subconscious emotions.

Jung's term for a collective "symbol" that operates spontaneously in each person's "unconscious". Archetypes appear in "dreams" as various kinds of sub-personalities, such as the "anima", "animus", child, father, maiden, mother, "Self", "shadow" and wise old man.
The original pattern or model of which all things of the same type are representations or copies; a perfect example.
An archetype is a generic, idealized model of a person, object or concept from which similar instances are derived, copied, patterned or emulated.

In the field of informatics, an archetype is a a formal re-usable model of a domain concept.
