Toldot Ha-Mitosim = Short History Of Myth

By Armstrong, Karen

Tel Aviv: Yediot Aharonot, 2006 Translated into Hebrew by Derorah Balishah.. "Human beings have always been mythmakers... So begins [this] concise yet compelling investigation into 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 right up to 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 characteristically insightful and eloquent book serves as a brilliant and thought-provoking introduction to myth in the broadest sense, and explains why if we dismiss it, we do so at our peril." 130p. bibliography.

The Hero with a Thousand Faces

By Campbell, Joseph

Princeton, NJ: Princeton Univ Pr, 1973 Bollingen Ser., No. XVII "Joseph Campbell's classic cross-cultural study of the hero's journey has inspired millions and opened up new areas of research and exploration. Originally published in 1949 . the first popular work to combine the spiritual and psychological insights of modern psychoanalysis with the archetypes of world mythology, the book creates a roadmap for navigating the frustrating path of contemporary life. Examining heroic myths in the light of modern psychology, it considers not only the patterns and stages of mythology but also its relevance to our lives today-and to the life of any person seeking a fully realized existence. Myth, according to Campbell, is the projection of a culture's dreams onto a large screen .it provides unparalleled insight into world mythology from diverse cultures. It is a must-have resource for both experienced students of mythology and the explorer just beginning to approach myth as a source of knowledge." 419p. illus., bib. notes, index; Clean crisp copy. 2nd Ed..
