An informative guide to the modern mythologies! This classic study, translated from the original French, deals primarily with societies around the world in which myth is--or was until very recently-- "living," in the sense that it supplies models for human behavior and, by that very fact, gives meaning and value to life. The author believes that understanding the structure and function of myths in these traditional societies serves to clarify a stage in the history of human thought: "myths reveal that the World, man, and life have a supernatural origin and history, and that this history is significant, precious, and exemplary."

I found his work "sacred & profane" just a little better, yet his research and understand of the human psyche and belief systems is really fascinating, he is not positing any evidence for one belief system over another, but how different cultures have used creation myths to radically enlighten their societies by creating values and organizing fundamental systems of belief about the whole world.
