Isis Unveiled meets Campbell's The Hero With A Thousand Faces in an all encompassing guide to the mythological world.
Mythology Unveiled examines mythology through the eyes of such greats as Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, Plato, and Euhemerus. Combining the ideas and philosophies of both classical and modern scholars, Jones reveals what he calls the ‘mythic truth’ that exists in virtually all stories.
” A must read for all lovers of mythology and ancient history.”
– T.D. Hill (The Age Of Myths & Legends)
Though written in an easy manner, Mythology Unveiled is filled with an exceptional amount of detail. By running through the myths as translated from their original authors, Jones is able to explain the universality of mythology through comparison.
Discovering the links from prehistory to mythology to religion, the human condition is explored and extrapolated onto the theories of archetypes and the monomyth. The evolution of these stories is continued into modern times, and mythology is then examined in the books, movies, and music that we are all familiar with reiterating the notion that the mythic world is still alive.
This astonishing book exposes how the themes and symbols of ancient mythology continue to bring meaning to life, death, love, and war. From stories of the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece and Rome to the traditions of The Tarot, traditional astrology and Christianity, a broad array of themes are considered that together identify the universality of the human experience across time and culture.
