I originally created this site to support my English 340 “Myth and Literature” course. As I am no longer teaching that course, I am re-purposing this blog as a “New Myth” project. This is about “thinking mythically.” Conventional wisdom is that after the sophists and Plato and Aristotle, humankind evolved from mythos to logos. However, even a cursory glance at our current politics reveals that rationality has not prevailed. Perhaps a new mythos will help.
