The Seven Myths of the Soul - Tim Addey
Tim Addey's The Seven Myths of the Soul is an introduction - for the nonspecialist reader - to the philosophical interpretation of myth. Beginning with the premise that the ancient myths of all races both reveal and conceal the deepest truths of human existence, the author reveals, through the stories of Persephone, Dionysus, Prometheus, Heracles, Apollo, Athene and Demeter the trials, initiations and ultimate destiny of the the human soul. This book is a useful introduction to Platonic philosophy and its enduring relevance to the modern age.
