Title Details

Audio Original


These lectures discuss various theories that address the origin, structure, and meaning of mythology. The theories of Frazer, Harrison, Malinowski, Eliade, Freud, Jung, Levi?Strauss, Campbell, and others are explored and applied through an intensive study of Greek mythology. Other mythologies in close geographic proximity with Greece, such as Mesopotamia, Babylon, Syria, Egypt, and Rome are investigated. In addition other mythologies, such as Norse, Japanese, Mayan, Aztec, Hindu, sections of Africa, and Navajo and other southwestern Pueblo cultures are visited. Through analysis of the divine narratives and legends of these cultures, the following archetypes are addressed: Creation, Flood/Cosmic Disaster, Origin of Humans, Mother Goddess, Dying & Resurrection, Afterlife, Trickster, and Hero. The Archetype Lectures were adapted from Georgia Nugent's lectures in Mythology for the Teaching Company.
