Medical / Psychoanalysis
English term or phrase: imago
"What huge imago made
A psychopathic god"
It is from the poem of W.H.Auden
"1 September 1939".
The term has a Latin origin and was coined by C.Yung, I think. I have found the Greek term "μορφοείδωλο". Could anyone propose something else even periphrastic?

Explanation:
τις εξηγήσεις τις έχεις ήδη δώσει, αλλά σου στέλνω και ό, τι δίνει το μεγάλο της Οξφόρδης:
mago (________). Pl. imagines (___________) and imagos.
[A modern application of L. imago image, representation, natural shape, etc. (First used by Linnæus, Syst. Nat. ed. 12 (1767) I. ii. 535.)]
1. a. Entom. The final and perfect stage or form of an insect after it has undergone all its metamorphoses; the _perfect insect'.
1797 Encycl. Brit., Imago, in Natural History, is a name given by Linnæus to the third state of insects, when they appear in their proper shape and colours.
1816 Kirby & Sp. Entomol. I. iii. 67 The states through which insects pass are four: the egg, the larva, the pupa, and the imago.
Ibid. 71 This Linné termed the imago state_because_it is now become a true representative or image of its species.
1847 Selby in Proc. Berw. Nat. Club II. No. 5. 208 Species, whose imagos only appear_at uncertain_intervals.
1881 Anderson in Science Gossip No. 202. 223 In the year following, the larvæ of Vanessa polychloros swarmed on the elms_[but] neither caterpillars nor imagines have since been noticed.
b. transf. The perfect stage of other animals that undergo a metamorphosis.
1854 Owen Skel. & Teeth in Circ. Sc., Organ. Nat. I. 189 The conversion of the cartilaginous skull of the larva to the ossified one of the imago, or perfect frog.
c. fig.
1921 19th Cent. Feb. 214 Since 1914 every constituent element that has been supposed to go to the making of great men---spacious times, tension, supreme effort, turmoil, battle, revolution---has abounded, but the imago has not emerged.
2. Psychoanalysis. A subjective image of someone (esp. a parent) which a person has subconsciously formed and which continues to influence his attitudes and behaviour. So father-imago, mother-imago.
1916 B. M. Hinkle tr. Jung's Psychol. of Unconscious (1918) 492 Here I purposely give preference to the term _Imago' rather than to the expression _Complex', in order_to invest this psychological condition, which I include under _Imago', with living independence in the psychical hierarchy._ _Imago' has a significance similar on the one hand to the psychologically conceived creation in Spitteler's novel_and on the other hand to the ancient religious conception of _imagines et lares'.
1919 M. K. Bradby Psycho-Anal. 59 That web of ideas and emotions which is woven in the course of the child's life round the image of the parent or _parent imago'.
1924 J. Riviere et al tr. Freud's Coll. Papers II. xxviii. 313 If the physician should be specially connected in this way with the father-imago (as Jung has happily named it) it is quite in accordance with his actual relationship to the patient.
1927 W. E. Collinson Contemp. Eng. 107 Most educated people will by now have heard of the Oedipus complex and will have a nodding acquaintance with libido and imago and may have, with distressing results, tried on themselves the method of free-association.
1948 M. Klein in S. Lorand Psycho-Analysis Today 65 The super-ego of the child does not coincide with the picture presented by its real parents, but is created out of imaginary pictures or imagos of them which it has taken up into itself.
1956 R. F. C. Hull tr. Jung's Coll. Wks. V. iv. 57 In most of the existing religions it seems that the formative factor_is the father-imago, while in the older religions it was the mother-imago.
1967 Brussel & Cantzlaar Chambers's Dict. Psychiatry 121 Imago, in Jung's analytical psychology, a conception of another person that one acquires in infancy or childhood and carries through to adulthood in the unconscious.
