Karen Armstrong. A Short History of Myth
Карън Армстронг. ​Кратка история на мита
Category: Anthropology/Cultural studies

Language: Bulgarian


   “Human beings have always been mythmakers.” So begins a Karen Armstrong’s investigation into myth: what it is, how it has evolved, and why we still so desperately need it. The author takes us from the Paleolithic period and the myths of the hunters right up to the “Great Western Transformation” of the last five hundred years and the discrediting of myth by science. The history of myth is the history of humanity, our stories and beliefs, our curiosity and attempts to understand the world, which link us to our ancestors and each other. Heralding a major series of retellings of international myths by authors from around the world, Armstrong’s book serves as a thought-provoking introduction to myth in the broadest sense.
