Adolf Bastian

Adolf Bastian (1826 – 1905) va ser un antropòleg i etnògraf alemany. La moderna psicologia li deu la teoria sobre Elementargedanke, la qual portà a Carl Jung a desenvolupar la teoria de l'arquetip. Les idees de bastian van influir en l'antropòleg Franz Boas i la mitologia comparada de Joseph Campbell.[1][2]
