Summary

Myth is truly boundlessly interdisciplinary. There is no field of myth studies itself. Rather, many disciplines have contributed theories of myth. In addition to theories from anthropology and sociology, theories of myth have come mainly from psychology, folklore, philosophy, religious studies, and – not least – literature. All are represented in this new four-volume Major Work from Routledge, which draws together scholarship on myth that ranges from the late nineteenth century down to the present. In addition to surveys of approaches to myth, the topics covered are: myth and history, myth and nationalism, myth and ideology, myth and psychology, myth and ritual, myth and literature, myth and anthropology/strcturalism, myth and philosophy, myth and religion. and myth and science/science in myth.

With an introduction by the editor, an index and a chronological table of articles, Myth will be welcomed by researchers as an indispensable reference resource.
