From Physical World to Human World

The Course of Modern Theorising about Myth

HS 47, Universitätshauptgebäude
Universitätsring 1, 1010 Wien


In the nineteenth century myth was assumed to have done for ancients and “primitives” what science does for moderns: explain events in the world around us. In the twentieth century myth was assumed to be anything but the outdated counterpart to science. It was no longer about the physical world, or else it no longer served to explain that world. Can myth in the present century bring us back to the physical world, but without conflicting with science?
