What is Mythosophy?

Myths are popularly treated as deceptions best exposed and dismissed.  The statement “His version of the incident was a myth” means that a mistaken or misleading story has been proffered.

What, really, are myths?

This blog will attempt to resurrect the tarnished image of myth and restore a primordial conception of what myth means.  A viewpoint will be developed of what myths can mean for us personally.  In a world bereft of meaning, can myths provide answers?

Can myth serve to inspire and uplift?  Mythosophy means “the wisdom of myth.”

About mythosophy

As a tracker follows a trail, I search for wisdom's footprints within the old stories, some newer ones, and selected aphorisms.
