Creation Myths: Man’s Introduction to the World

By: David Maclagan

$21.00

Every culture, no matter how simple, has left us some framework designed to account for the origin and nature of the world’s life-structures. Myths are not as unlike our sciences as they seem– they too have to account, not only for the ‘laws of nature, ‘ but for the laws and customs of men.

Description

Every culture, no matter how simple, has left us some framework designed to account for the origin and nature of the world’s life-structures. Myths are not as unlike our sciences as they seem– they too have to account, not only for the ‘laws of nature, ‘ but for the laws and customs of men.

They describe the cosmos in human and man in cosmic terms. In fact, they point back to the moment before such distinctions existed: through words and images they point to a ‘past’ which is always present, a creative process which is life itself.
