Seminar: Tuesday 12:00-2:00
Cross-listed with AMES 656. COML 662,RELS605
Theories of myth are the center of modern and post-modern, structural
and post-structural thought. Myth has served as a vehicle and
a metaphor for the formulation of a broad range of modern theories.
In this course we will examine the theoretical foundations of
these approaches to myth focusing on early thinkers such as Vico,
and concluding with modern twentieth century scholars in several
disciplines that make myth the central idea of their studies.
