The Place of Myth in Modern Life

Myth takes us deep into the psychic reservoirs of humanity.  Whatever our cultural and religious background or personal psychology, a greater intimacy with myth provides a vital linkage with meaning, the absence of which is so often behind the private and collective neuroses of our time.  In short, the study of myth is the search for that which connects us most deeply with our own nature and our place in the cosmos.

Just as today's anthropologists seek to reconstruct the sensibility of previous cultures, so future generations will seek to understand the kind of world we have made for ourselves.  They will ask the same questions of us that we ask of the past, and we can ill afford to be less conscious of our values than those who one day will sift through our bones.

Tracking the Gods illustrates how myths reflect the archetypal roots of our personal psychology, and explains how ancient drives influence and often dominate our behavior.
