  Carl Gustav Jung
Jung was probably unaware of the Friesian background of Otto's term "numinosity" when he began to use it for his Archetypes, but it is unlikely that he would object to the way in which Otto's theory, through Fries, fits into Kantian epistemology and metaphysics.
Jung was often at pains not to complicate his theory of the Archetypes by committing himself to a metaphysical theory -- he wanted the theory to work whether he was talking about the brain or about the Transcendent -- but that was merely a concession to the materialistic bias of contemporary science.
Jung's Kantianism enables him to avoid the materialism and reductionism of Freud ("all of civilization is a substitute for incest") and, with a great breadth of learning, employs principles from Kant, Schopenhauer, and Otto that are easily conformable to the Kant-Friesian tradition.

 Carl Gustav Jung
Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) was the son of a Swiss pastor.
Jung was Freud's favourite disciple, and his defection, over his agreements in many areas - especially Freud's over-emphasis on sexuality (which can be seen in perspective as a response to and interpretation of the puritanical Victorian attitude of the time), and his rejection of spirituality, occultism, and religion - was a great loss for Freud.
Today, Jung's significance in the field of clinical psychology, relative to Freud and to the behavourist B. Skinner, is minimal; but his influence - especially his idea of the "Collective Unconscious" - in New Paradigm and New Age thought, as well as the popular mythology of the day, is truely tremendous.

However, a formal break with Freud came with the publication of Jung’s revolutionary work The Psychology of the Unconscious (1912), which disagreed with the Freudian emphasis on sexual trauma as the basis for all neurosis and with the literal interpretation of the Oedipus complex.
While Jung’s work is of little importance in contemporary psychoanalytic practice, it remains widely influential in such fields as religious studies and literary criticism.
Additionally, he was the first person to introduce into the language such terms and concepts as “anima”; and “New Age.” For Jung the most important and lifelong task imposed upon any person is fulfillment through the process of individuation, the achievement of harmony of conscious and unconscious, which makes a person one and whole.
