A Mythological Approach to the Dilemma of the Individual in an Empirical Culture...

To examine from the point of view of comparative religion and comparative mythology, the question of man's apparent schizophrenia in the contemporary world. Two conflicting theories--Is the individual man an infinitesimal speck in the continuum of time, or is he the center of all things who continually orders a world in the image of himself? Or is it possible that mankind is on the verge of a new synthesis, a new level of consciousness resulting from the reintegration of his dualistic nature?--will be plumbed in depth.
