Myth's Abiding Power
Elizabeth M. Baeten - Author

Analyzes the theories of myth of Cassirer, Barthes, Eliade, and Hillman and offers an alternative original account of myth-making as an essential strand of cultural production.

The Classical Tradition, Rorty, and the Philosophy of Communication
Lenore Langsdorf - Editor
