The Golden Compass

Since Pullman's daemons are almost always of different gender from their possessors, I think they are probably based on the Jungian anima/animus concept. They are consistent with Jaynes' work, though, inasmuch as Jaynes' bicameral mind can be thought of as the neural substrate to Jung's archetype.
