In brief: Erik Erikson
Erik erikson outlined 8 stages of development, one being identity vs role diffusion that occurs in late adolescence.
This is the period of identity crisis. A later stage is generativity versus stagnation, which is consistent with midlife crisis. Since both are psychodynamic concepts, they are related to freudian and possibly jungian theory as well.
