Myths and Their Meaning w/ Craig H. Bennett
Myths can be found in essentially every human culture, past or present. They are stories that we tell ourselves as individuals, as participants in a culture, and as citizens of a nation. They tell us who we are in the world and how we should live. As we examine the deeper meaning of myth, we’ll look at some archetypes that appear in various myths, how those archetypes provide models for characters in popular entertainment, and how they often appear in our own lives. We’ll also examine some of the myths we tell ourselves and how they affect our individual lives, the life of Western culture, and the life of our nation, the United States of America.
