  • "Originology" is a word coined by the psychoanalyst, Erik H. Erikson. He used it in both "Young Man Luther" and "Gandhi's Truth." In "Young Man Luther" he wrote, that originology refers to “reducing every human situation to an analogy with an earlier one, and most of all to that earliest, simplest, and most infantile precursor which is assumed to be its ‘origins.’”
