Géza Roheim (Sept 12 ,1891 –June 7 1953) was a Hungarian psychoanalyst and anthropologist. Having trained as a Freudian analyst, he left Europe and his practice to do anthropological field work in Australia. He later settled in the United States. One of his descendants is Regina.[citation needed]

It is important to note that Roheim criticised Carl Gustav Jung's theory involving archetypes and is a valued contributor to modern theology for doing so.
