Description

The series begins with Karen Armstrong's compelling investigation into myth; what it is, how it has evolved, and why we still so desperately need it. She takes us from the Palaeolithic period and the myths of the hunters right through to the Great Western Transformation of the last 500 years and the discrediting of myth by science. The history of myth is the history of humanity; our stories and beliefs, our curiosity and attempts to understand the world, link us to our ancestors and each other. Myths help us make sense of the universe; if we ignore them, we do so at our peril. Characteristically insightful and eloquent, Armstrong's book is a brilliantly thought-provoking introduction to myth in the broadest sense.
