A short history of myth

Human beings have always been mythmakers. Theologian Armstrong here investigates myth: what it is, how it has evolved, and why we still so desperately need it. She takes us from the Paleolithic period and the myths of the hunters, 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.--From publisher description.

  • "Vingt-cinq éditeurs se sont associés pour demander à des écrivains du monde entier leur vision des grands mythes de l'humantié. En introduction à cette série, K. Armstrong étudie la fonction de ces mythes depuis l'ère paléolithique jusqu'à l'époque contemporaine. Elle offre une réhabilitation au rôle de l'imaginaire, un plaidoyer pour les mythologies grecques, africaines, hindoues ou scandinaves."
